Re: Attaching pics

Exactly! Same thing with my phone Charlie. A pic of my car in the garage loads all day, but take it outside on a bright day and no joy.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike,
On the frame, what do you do to ensure the doubled up area in the rear mostly, is clean? I find it very hard to clean, and even harder to paint properly. Is separating them an option?

Thank...

Re: Painting Over Water !!!!!!!!!!!

If you ever want to test the moisture theory take a propane torch and heat a cool piece of metal. Water droplets will form.

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

So is this a federal tax or state tax? And if state, what happens if your state has no tax, such as mine?

Re: Flathead Partially Disassembled

Good catch David, I didn’t even notice that...

Re: Engine I. D.

Look on the left rear of the block, on the intake surface, there may be a date code stamped in it. Not all of them have it but that’s going to be the only way to get it close.
Go to Van Pelt’s...

Re: Flathead Valve Adjusting Methods ??'s

I posted a link above that I think is the same one your talking about. Using stock lifters though. I might try that on my next build if I can come up with a valve grinder.

Re: Chassis paint recommendations?

I used an epoxy prime, very tough, and covered with acrylic black gloss, very tough and looks great.
