Re: Ford Holden

Ford never took bail outs in 06. Last of the private big car companies give or take. I'm sure the manufacturing is just moving here.... or maybe. not. Tariffs.

Re: Reusing head bolts.

Good stuff. thank you. Think on a regular flathead I wouldn't be to concerned. But if all checks out good, slap some new gaskets on and some new bolts.

Re: crab distributor - only choice on early 21 stud ?

Some great info shared, and great we made the crab too (Nazis suck balls). Most likely you had a helmut to start with originally. Know your condition your condition is in. Nice project.

Re: Reusing head bolts.

GB i think when they stretch they are done stretching. Doesn't mean they are bad.


Don't throw the baby out with the bath water as they say. Don't overthink it, as you are saying.

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

Creating a physical item is expensive. Digital content is spewed out in nausea and is cheaper on the web. But not always productive in return. Too many sources can flood what it good.

Re: aluminum radiators

I think if you are not going for original. Just compare the volume and add a little.

Re: Reusing head bolts.

Re: Gear Shift Lever

I'd hate to say that you can cold bend that, it's pretty cool. I'd look at something different, as mentioned, to bend up or cut and weld. It's just metal.
