Re: Water pump castings

Check with Daryl Fryer who rebuilds pumps. His # is 909-335-1416. I know he asks for cores when he sends his rebuilt pumps. He does a great job on his rebuilds.

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

I've always used the bearing, sleeve and spring from the later Ford columns. You can get the kit from C and G Parts and other V-8 parts vendors.

Re: Wildfire evacuation

Maybe that genius can reveal the kid's gender to his fellow prisoners when he's sentenced to prison for 30 or 40 years. Stupidity can be a terminal disease.

Re: 1952 ford flathead AUTOMATIC

Re: 40 turn signal options??
