1937 Ford Milage Log

Does anyone know if this milage log was a dealer or an aftermarket item? Backside is in woodgrain color. The backside has a slot that may hold business cards.

At my age why do I bring these things home?

Friend called me, wanted to know if I wanted a flathead out of 1949 truck, before it goes to salvage yard. Why do I do this?

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

I understand about the tread chaser, I have overhauled aluminum marine engines. Aluminum treads can be a challenge. I have never worked on these type of heads and am very concerned about the alloy.

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Thanks Tubman, I was hoping you would respond. I will now make sure to chase all threaded holes and verify they pass. Also will measure chambers and level with a straight edge as advised.
Thanks ...
