Re: Split Lock Washers On Main Bearing Caps Of Flathead Motor

Split lock washers are ineffective at functioning as "lock" washers. In fact, they can lead to premature loosening of the joint. They shouldn't be used anywhere critical.

Re: 34 repo grill shells

I suspect that the Ford assembly line was far less picky about exacting fitment in 1933 and 1934 than those who are restoring the cars today.

Re: PayPal technical problem

This is a designed feature, not a technical problem. What happens is that the funds you send are tied to an email address. If that address isn't associated with an active PayPal account, an email...

Re: Is this Washington Blue?

Which paint brands/lines did you use for these cars? Are they custom-mixed colors or a standard from the catalogs? If the latter, do you have the color codes?

Re: The Ford Books Fastener Guide

I've thought a black zinc flake plating would be well suited for old Ford fasteners. It has superior corrosion resistance to black oxide while being more "black" than a standard zinc with a black...

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

Re: new to this era. Questions about phaetons or sedan convertibles?

1928-34 open cab (roadster) pickup. Just toss the kids in the bed. They'll dry out if they get wet.

Re: 1933 34 colors

This is a correct statement. One cannot trust photos on a computer screen to accurately represent the actual color. There are too many variables; camera calibration, monitor calibration, photo...

Re: Don Orasco Selling Out Question?

I'd be curious as to what this person actually purchased. For $10k I doubt it was anything particularly rare or valuable. I'm sure Don has enough contacts in SoCal that would have quickly cleaned...

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

Given the length of the panel behind the door, my guess is that it's a crudely modified and repaired Ute.

Re: Michigan classic car laws help ?

Not across the board.

Even a standard 1941 Ford Fordor would have only had a single tail light from the factory.

Re: Metric Piston Rings?

You can purchase inch-sized rings made with the same materials and coatings as metric-sized rings. There isn't anything special about the latter.

Re: The Highwaymen Movie

Does it really matter if it was the cowl instead of the hood? The point is he's standing on the car.
