Re: Another Huge Loss to me

Re: Prayer's for one of our fellow "Barner's".

And all the best to this barner from me. This is just the thing we don't want to hear. Many of us here are approaching that age, and my heart goes out to a friend that we all need to hold in prayer.

The big stover is mine and I have a 3hp as well as some old air cooled stuff. I sold the gas powered maytag washer. About 5 of us set up in that area every year for the last 34 years at Lynden Wa, in...

Re: Cubic inch question

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

Re: '40 front fenders

Did some sketching this morning. I printed a photo of my project vehicle, taped it to the kitchen window and traced the outline onto a blank sheet of paper. Then I took the partial sketch and filled...

Re: Cubic inch question

C'mon Mart.... That takes two strings and an angle grinder. Can someone show me the cubic inch displacement of my stationary engine? One cylinder, 6" bore, 12" stroke.

Re: 60hp engine

Re: '40 front fenders

Thanks, that is a really cool power wagon, but if there is any wood in this vehicle It would be most likely be in the form of a plywood floor, or perhaps a wood flatbed. A varnished wood body leads...
