Re: Best electric harness on the market??

When David brings something like this to my attention, it makes me smile also. I see nothing but a credibility problem with Bauer/Harris, because of this. Opinion...

Re: D44 R&P pattern

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

Well, heck, I must have been 'styling', back in the 50's. Here's one of my high-school cars, with BOTH the antenna, and the port-a-walls. Little hard to see in the pictures, but they are there. It...

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford

Chiming in with Newc... Be careful with the terminology... 4-in drop does not usually mean 4-in from stock. It means 4-in total, or, around 2-in from stock. In any event, please check it out. I think...

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

This is really good info that I really appreciate. I've just chatted with Don, the owner, and now I'm on the hunt for 35 drums with less regard for their size. Thank you.

Re: Ed Iskenderian Interview

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

Some folks worry more that me. My wife was a fatality in a car accident. I followed her car from tow yard to junk yard, to junk yard, to a 'final' junk yard. I can assure anyone, that NO ONE ever...

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

DD... I'm a little surprised at the fan shown in your pict... I've never found those fans to move enough air. I've thrown away a few of those.

Re: WW2 Ford Canada Military Engines- PCV system

Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

We're screwing around with old Fords. Me thinks there is too much worrying going on. Are we assembling 'precision' engines, or just old Fords?

Re: 46 pick up 1/2 or 3/4 ton?

Referring to your picture... If you could pop off the hubcap, and count the lugs, might identify 1/2 or 3/4, 5 or 8 lugs ??? Maybe. DD would know. And, as DD noted, 7 in the 799, designates 1947...

Re: 34 Ford Hood latch spring

I can't help you, but... I had to look on the other side on my 34 to figure it out. And, I learned that there is an 'early' and 'later' design. Naturally, the vendor that i bought from, had the...

Re: 1940 merc rear end?

It will be interesting to see results of post 31. I'll be real surprised if there are not a couple errors in posts 30 and 32. My restoration experience suggest such. But, as Coop says... what do I...

Re: A California Survivor - California Cabriolet V-8

I'm 'wondering'... Any chance that was Bernie VanAalst's 34? In any event, it looks like it. Bernie's car still had original factory upholstery (in relatively good shape), and original 34 engine....
