Re: 1936 Phaeton - Indoor cover

Another vote for C.C.C. In the unlikely event they don't stock

(or at least they once did).

Re: Bad rebuilt starter from NAPA

Yep, it's a different world today. I would bet most, if not all of the parts house suppliers, sell cheaper, imported hard parts, especially
starters and alternators. The cores are shipped over by...

Re: PNW Flathead Rebuilders

Portland Engine Rebuilders is also a good firm.
They did the hot little flatty in a 34 pickup, recently donated to
our museum (WAAAMuseum.org). Also did a 460 BBF for me
more recently. High...

Re: Dropped axle

TJ; how much was your axle dropped? Its my understand-
