Call your Fastenal store and ask about it. If it is just the rearend you can strap it on a pallet and they will ship it to there nearest store to the receiver.

Re: 8BA valve seat grinding

Kev
So you are grinding the seats to set the tappet clearance? If the seats are good why not butt grind the valve stems?

Re: Adjusting Clock Speed

Well, who cares about a few minutes of accuracy. If you are out on a ride in your old Ford just enjoy the ride and don't worry about what the exact time it is.

Re: 52 F1 Just curious

Airstreams are heavier and more expensive than newer light weight trailers so compare the weights. Maybe heavy duty shocks on the back and you are good to go. JMO

Re: What's your "Go To" for a hard head?

I made this lifter from old spark plugs. Helps to wiggle them but be gentle so you don't damage the threads.

Same as JWL's
