Re: T-Bird valve covers

This is about a set of early staggered bolt hole NOS Corvette valve covers but will apply Fords as well. When I took them out of the blue and white GM box there was white fuzzy corrosion on the edge...

Re: changing wheel bolt pattern

Don't know what it has to do with the spindles but the bolt pattern for the pickup is 5 on 5.5 and the Mustang is 5 on 4.5. The pilot (part the wheel center fits on) will be bigger on the truck so it...

Re: Any 100% original restorations, past or present?

Here's a 40 that this 83 years young fellow did from his memory only, no books. We did the metal work and paint but he completely disassembled and reassembled it himself with his 82 year old wife's...

Re: wesscott fiberglass parts

I avoid glass parts when possible but when I must use them then it is either Wescott or Poli-Form. The latter is also a company that's been around a long time but not as well known even though the...

Re: welding a block

Always wondered how Ford welded the entire sides onto the 1937 V8 60 block. They were welded with one continuous bead around the entire perimeter and the weld was beautiful.

Re: A powered Pietenpol Air Camper

My younger brother, now deceased, built a Pietenpol about 35 years ago. He had very few tools so it must be an easy plane to build. He used a 140(?)hp Corvair engine in place of the 40hp A engine....

Re: Aries hi-performance muffler application.

Do you know Dennis Piranio? You may because he is the source for the Donovan aluminum A/B engine. I would like to be a mouse in the corner if you two had a conversation on A's. He built a...

Re: 34 cabriolet interior

Re: Bonniville Speed week

Dennis Piranio is shooting for August 2011 for a run on his class record and I have no doubts that he will make a good showing. His blown alcohol dragster, tractor, and boat engines are well known.

Re: 41 Ford Starting Problem

Kind of along the line of what GM does but a bit higher cost. I use a horn relay mounted under the solenoid so just one longer wire to the coil is needed. A wire from the hot side of the solenoid is...
