When it was below freezing, my parents' '55 manual trans Pontiac would try to creep forward in neutral at first.

Re: The great American race

Two friends that ran last year didn't have that and finished, one with no penalty points, so not all. Another buddy had a pretty good setup, though.

Re: The first women to circumnavigate the world in a car

When my kids were teenagers, it wouldn't have taken much for me to take off! Of course, they're just fine now.

Re: BackFlushing Radiator and Engine

The hose adapters are easy enough to make. I got holesaws to match the hose IDs and the garden hose adapter fitting OD to use on chunks of 2x4. I used adapter fittings that had a female hose end...

Re: Stupid Question #2: how does an iron frame act as a ground on our cars

See https://www.tibtech.com/conductivite.php?lang=en_US

Copper is almost ten times as conductive as steel. The steel frame makes up for it by being more than ten times the cross sectional area.

Re: Did Ford give contracts to Murray & Briggs?

Donít know about the archives, but it seems unlikely that Ford would arrange for bodies on a handshake,if that is what you meant.

Re: Which tap and die set

I was going to say that I think it is safe to say that there arenít any BSW/F threads on a Model A, but who knows about the UK models with their smaller motors, etc.?

Re: Swapping engines, any tips?

Re: Cabin Fan

My Grand Experiment is over. :( The 6V seems to have burnt out the 5V motor, since the motor leads show open circuit.

Re: Cabin Fan

To tell the truth, no, but it makes a lot of sense. Maybe that will inspire some thoughts on a similar mount.
