Re: C69A block

Was that from rust or the use of the crappy spots in the iron?

Re: 1942 Mercury rebuild vlog

I swapped some smoke for this 8ba crank and rods, 8ba stuff in Newzealand is very hard to come by and very expensive. Not sure if I will use it in this build.

I understand the 8ba crank cam gear...

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

I put semi fluid grease in my steering box and it was like having power steering, way better than oil, also my headers wrap around both sides of the steering box for max heat.

Re: It's a MIRACLE!
