Re: High compression head choice.

Started with the original B-F head and went to the B-F Super Head and never looked back. Hard to find a B-F head as Larry quit making them years ago.

Re: charge battery via alternator lug

You can see the positive post on my remote battery terminals. About $20 a pair at Speedway plus cables. Easy to use jumper cables and trickle chargers

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

At $172, I can afford a number of oil changes! Sold the aFORDable kit here years ago. Because I have headers, I had the remote mounting kit. Much easier to change the filters. Cut open the...

Building a high horsepower, reliable Model A engine is equal to the price of at least three SBC crate engines.

Every time this question pops up, I make the suggestion that MARC and MAFCA do a joint project and poll the insurance companies, state DMV’s and museums.
