Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

Sorry to hear that. That's why I said do your homework.

Fellas, if a guy has your motor and parts, no need to give them any money until you have your motor.

If a shop asks for money up...

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

What's your mailing address?

I'll just trace my angle adapter and mail it to you.

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

Came to say the same. I'll post picts. of what NOS ones look like. Get your wallet out. New ones are $150 a piece. I believe they are for a '37 Willys. Which ever the model year it was before...

Re: Barrett Jackson

I'm going to bail out of this conversation. DD, we will have to agree to disagree.

To each his own I guess. I still say a lot of assumptions are being made. Could be a typo or it could be bad...

Re: Barrett Jackson

Correct. VIN is key, not sheet metal. Think of how many Model A's have '32 grilles.

Maybe but I'd roll the dice. Many different ways to skin a cat in order to clean up the paperwork.

I just went through this and my paperwork is now a totally legit. Correct VIN and all.

Re: Barrett Jackson

There are a lot of assumptions being made that the car is a fraud. Not one of us was there, looking at the documentation, etc.

We are making a boat load of assumptions. It could be a simple...

Re: Barrett Jackson

If this came up for sale around me for $20K, it would be in my garage. Paperwork can be sorted out on an old car.

Think about how many model A's are running around that don't have anywhere...

Re: Barrett Jackson

Not sure those are selling either. The circle I run with all want authentic hot rods. Flatheads, 3 speeds, etc.

The SBC cars may sell, but are getting very hard to move.

Re: Barrett Jackson

I saw that, but I think it's a typo. Its listed in the auction as a 1935 Ford.

Re: Barrett Jackson

Yes. Hot rods are the hot ticket right now. Sadly, "stocker" prices are on the decline.

So true. One time I was rushing to fix a mover deck with a MIG. No gloves or helmet.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

Incredible story. Really neat car and history. I love the one seen where McQueen is going in reverse and the tire is hopping and smoking. I'm sure that car got a work out during the filming.

Re: Two Piece Oil Pans? When were they made?

If anyone has just the pan for sale, I’d be interested. I have the back piece.

Re: 47 pickup tranny

Agreed. Regardless of your transmission, 3rd gear is a 1:1 ratio. 3:55's are a nice gear set. Something else seems to be amiss.

Re: 47 pickup tranny

I'd assume the original truck rear end has 4:11 or lower gear ratio, no?

Would it be easier to swap the rear gears vs. adapting a different trans?

Re: 52 F1 detent

Oh boy. Recently rebuilt and popping out? I hope it's just the detents.

If not, the cluster is set too loose and the trans will need to come apart to fix.
