Re: MAFFI Hall of Fame

All great selections. Second the appreciation to Les Andrews. Very well deserved. I use his books all the time.

Starter failure

I have been helping a fellow club member get his car started. It is turning over very slowly. We replaced the starter a few months ago and he has only driven it a few times since then. It started...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

As you can see you are not alone. I suspect that at least half of every can is never used. What a waste.

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

One reason that I have read is that the GM bodies had more wood in them, so they rotted away. I don't think that explains it all, though. Model As seem to have a significant amount of wood in them,...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Interesting hypothetical question.

I think legally it could go to either, but I think an argument could be made that it goes with the chassis. The chassis mark would correspond to the dash VIN...

Re: Cleaning engine out in '40 Sedan

Re: How is it.........

The publications on carbs talk about how an air filter makes them run rich. Both of my cars came with AirMaze filters which I removed and replaced with a K&N Highboy. They seem to run fine, but...

Re: receiving paypal payments

There are other options, like Venmo (owned by PayPal) and Zelle, which I have never used. The biggest problem with Venmo is that there is a maximum amount that you can transfer. No fees, either,...
