Re: 10 years a roadster!

Imagine kids of today doing the engine swap that Jackson describes. Not happening! Kids today (i'm generalizing I know) can't even handle a crescent wrench. Sad , really.

Re: Then disaster struck !

Re: STP/gear lub

Re: 1936 LB marking

Chris, it's a 1936 21 stud flathead with insert bearings versus babbitt. 36 was the first year that the changeover started taking place.
