Re: 1936 Ford pickup restoration

I remember your truck. It was really sharp!! I only wish I had been the one who bought it. Hope they kept it original and didn't chop it up.

Re: Hagerty Ford Model A home garage project

Fun to watch and I appreciate this guy's enthusiasm. Neat video.

I WOULD be leary of those 1972 Rick's spindles kits that he showed. Luckily Dad wrote this info on the box.

I'd be more apt to...

Re: Antique Insurance a little off Topic

Same here. Got my magazine Tuesday had a good article on Mustangs.

Re: 1936 ford pickup

THAT is a sharp '36. Hard to beat the '35 and '36 Ford pickups and trucks. Beautiful to look at just sitting still.

Congratulations. That one is too nice to chop up into a street rod like 90% of...

Re: Marvel Schebler carb pouring gas

Agree. I have one of Jim's MS carbs and it is great, he is a good guy knows his stuff and stands behind his work. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in the Model A community:)

Re: LeBarron Bonney name bought by Ekler's

Hate to say it but I believe anyone who is owed money or parts is just going to be SOL.

I wouldn't hold my breath expecting any kind of refund.

Re: Will turn over but won't start

Also I assume that when you take the distributor cap off, you see the rotor turning while somebody cranks the engine. If not you probably have a bad timing gear. Elementary but good idea to check.

Re: Model A service Bulletins complete book the yellow one

I bought that book when I was a Senior in H.S. back in the fall of '71. I used to take it to Study Hall to read.

Still have it and still get it out to look at it.

Gee it probably cost 4 bucks...

Re: new tubes-any of them any good?

I believe Bratton's are having new tubes made out of fresh materials not the re-hashed stuff. They say they are the best. Probably where Bert's gets theirs.

Coming from overseas but at least the...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Terry this may be a stupid question, but will the new engine HAVE to run a filter?

I know it is better for the engine but I never liked the looks of a filter on a Model A. I don't mind just...

Bill I did the exact same thing, for the exact same reasons and never looked back.

Sometimes modern type improvements ain't all that grand I have found.

Marshall thanks for posting.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Carl, in my opinion and it doesn't account for much ;) Model A blocks being a 'dime-a-dozen', well maybe and maybe not if you want a good one. As time goes by the good ones will get harder to find. ...

I had the same problem with a threaded in screen on a '28 Model A. But had a '29 Tudor that it unscrewed no problem.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Terry's new engine configuration will fill the 'gap' by the loss of guys like Herm Kohnke who's talents sadly are getting quite difficult to replicate.

Properly rebuilding a '90 year old engine'...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

I just read recently where Scat crankshafts are made in China then shipped to Redondo Beach, Calif. for machining and sales. Scat cranks are pretty top of the line, good units.
