Re: Craftsman torque wrench, great deal at Lowe's

Contrary to what some will tell you, Snap On does make some of its tool line in off shore factories including China. But according to the Snap On web site torque wrenches are still USA made.

Are you sure that a Snap On one is USA made? Contrary to what some will tell you, Snap On does make some of its tool line in off shore factories (China?) Not sure about torque wrenches.

Re: CA YOM License Plate Program Question

Correct. Commercial plates not required for a Model A but later year pickups - I believe after 1934 but I could be wrong- require commercial plates with the corresponding weight fees. I do know that...

If you are thinking about Wheel Vintiques you might want to do some research first. Another choice might be The Wheelsmith.

The 8ba has smaller diameter thermostat housing inlets (1 1/4 IIRC) then the top radiator inlet (1 3/4) on the stock radiator. You can either buy reducer bushings to go from 1 3/4 to 1 1/4 (pricey)...
