Re: Anyone running a 6v fuel pump that is quiet?

Airtex was sold to Trico in 2019, so inventories may have changed since folks bought theirs. Trico owns Carter as well.

Re: New Carb

Marvel carbs tend to be more trouble-free, if you're not concerned about strict period accuracy (the Marvels were introduced in '46).

Re: Tom Wesenberg

Re: Tom Wesenberg

He apparently emailed Mitch at VFF to confirm the fire and that the house and cars were not insured. Iím gonna wait on a GoFundMe until thereís one that Tom officially blesses.

Re: '30 Tudor Rear Seat Belt Center Anchor Ideas

On my '29 coupe I did something similar where I used thru-body holes on the sides to anchor a steel bar going all the way across behind the seat (above the body floor). Then I just attached the...
