The regulator works fine...

Re: S-10 transmission on a flathead

I have a 32 Tudor that has an 8BA and a S10
I didn't do the swap........... I bought the car that way from a late friends widow.
It's a pretty simple swap as far as the engine to trans piece.

Re: Ignition key

Just a little info on key blanks.
Original Hurd blanks are preferred but they are sometimes hard to get and often pricey.
Older aftermarket blanks are ok as well but they can be expensive too.

Re: Open 1951 trunk without a key?
