Re: Flathead Machine shop in Kansas City area?

JWL, I would do that too if I had that machine. I have a Kwik Way line bore setup and a valve surfacing machine. Also New Way seat cutters. Just no boring setup. I would enjoy doing it all myself the...

Re: Flathead Machine shop in Kansas City area?

I asked on the HAMB and, though there are many posts about the offset crank, nobody will answer as to...

Re: Flathead Machine shop in Kansas City area?

I've been told due to the crank offset that indexing incorrectly for boring can ruin a flathead pretty quick. Do they index off the deck or crank?

Flathead Machine shop in Kansas City area?

I'm sure it's been asked before. Need machine shop only. I can cut valve seats and assemble. Just need a crack check and bore.
One in Basehor too busy. Others questionable on flat head experience....

Re: 1940 Clock Help - Merc & Ford

Re: Newly acquired 32 coupe

Have to agree. I understand tweaking the pedal positions but otherwise..... Do nothing!

Re: Memorial day thoughts

Perfectly stated, Marcus. Thanks you to all who have served.

June 6 is my personal holiday. Get up early, sit on the deck with coffee or walk the trail with the dog at daybreak.
Always remember...

Re: 34 kick panel material

The matte spray is a good idea. I have done that before to good effect.

I liked the way Mart did it on one of his builds. Can't remember which video it was.

Re: Hillbilly block cleaning...electrolysis

B&S, Is there a special technique you use with the Evaporust? Lay block on back with heads on and fill, etc?
My project is disassembled so can't be filled/flushed/repeated.

Re: 1932 1933 1934 truck restoration or hot rod

For me to lower and "hotrod" a '32 it would have to be in pretty pitiful shape.

That's just me.

Re: Vintage Precision Hub Puller

I made a clam shell style for '40 hubs and it worked well on one side but not the other. I'm hoping I just had the most stuck taper ever.

Old thread but even molasses uses acid as it is part of the reaction as it breaks down, or reacts with the metal. It's also nasty when left to work for a few weeks. Evil globs of floating, smelly,...
