Re: Big Boys Heads

Yes, these are rare. I seem to recall an issue with them cracking, so I'd get them checked out before throwing them on a motor. It would be cheap insurance.

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

I think they've caught up. My buddy had a Slingshot "on hold" for approximately 6 mons. It just showed up two weeks ago, so I think what ever issue they had, they've corrected.

I do want to...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Look to Tony Baron. He makes similar heads. These seem a little ridiculous how thick they are. Clean out the block right and that extra coolant isn't needed.

Re: Flathead V-8 Starter Rebuilding

I've seen then in their on-line catalog, Kube. Have you gotten them from Napa? Curious on your thoughts.

Re: Carburettor storage.

Curious if a coating of Gibb's oil and then placed in a plastic bag would also work?

Re: 1932 Ford Pedal Pads Question

The rubber surface was bonded to the medal pad. Another option it to source a used set and put a set of pad covers over the OEM ones.

I don't have the pedals in front of me, but I seem to...

I think someone said the A/T starter is the same as the 6 cly. starter.

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Another trick that Zach Suhr showed me was to make a clamping ring to go around opening and use an old inner tube to seal the opening. He used an old red rubber inner tube and it looked really slick.

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Pete,

Is your car a rumble or a trunk? The reason I ask, you may want to test fit the bottom seat springs. If rumble and Judging from picts., looks like you'll need to make a custom seat bottom...

Pete:

I have one of the 4 door sedan humps sitting in my garage. You are welcome to come take it and try it out on your roadster.

Re: Clearing the air for holley 94 part

In hindsight, I can see what you are saying and I may have contributed to it by jumping into the fray by agreeing to comments posted against him. If so, I apologize for egging him on.

Re: Stroker Pistons from back in the day

Haha. Maybe your right. The unfinished one I have is like the picture with that "casting tit" left in the middle of the dome. It just seems like such an odd shape to make something out of.

Re: Stroker Pistons from back in the day

Great thread. I have some Edelbrock pistons as well. Some are finished and some aren't (like the one pictured).

Raises the question: Why would someone purchase an unfinished piston?

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Correct. The subrail (flat piece that runs perpendicular to the body) need to be either cut out or made into a box to correspond to the amount of kick up on the frame.

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Agree. I've found Vern's latest Model A book is even better. Pictures are clearer and it makes a little more sense for a first timer.

Even though he is doing a 2 door Sedan in the latest book,...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Correct. The rear sub rails need to be cut around the rear cross member.

Pete, don't beat anything out. It will look like sh*t. It will eventually fit, you just need to figure out what it's...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Where exactly are you referring to? Reason I ask, I can measure against my original '28 roadster body and report back.
