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

more recently. High...

Re: Dropped axle

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

Re: 1949 Ford State Police car

^^^^Are you referring to their Straight 8 engine? I would have
thunk it would have been considered obsolete by then, and they
would have used their newish V-8.

Re: Aug/Sept project 2 to make 1 39 std cpe on sdn pan

Good advice from tub^^^. You may find the body a bit tweaked,

ments to be sure body AND frame are square, before and after bolting...
