Hey guys.....Nothin' wrong with a trip to the "Dark Side" on occasion. It's been said that a little "strange" every now and then keeps things just above interesting! NO STREET rods, though!! DD

Re: Need a source for '34 pitman arm for Heims

Re: Pitman arm clocking

Run the steering box FULLY from left lock to right lock, counting number of turns. Return exactly one half of the number of turns to CENTER. Install Pitman arm straight ahead. Then, adjust drag...

Re: Pitman arm clocking

Re: Electric fan over a belted fan

Now that is a somewhat interesting approach. MY problem with the electrics is that they stick-out like a sore thumb, and drastically take-away from any nostalgic look of a traditional hot rod. They...
