Re: Fuel tank dipping & sealing opinions welcome

For the life of me, I can't recall the name of company that specialized in gas tank coatings. They did everything from antique cars to industrial equipment. They use to advertise in Hemmings.

Re: T5 to torque tube adapter

Re: Long shot: Looking for a Hershey vendor who sold nice '32 parts in Chocolate Fiel

The power of Fordbarn and the internet. The gentleman I was looking for contacted me today and he lives only 30 minutes from me. How about that? Bonus is that he still has the parts I'd like to...

Re: French Flathead in the womb

Re: Canadian Intake Question

It's funny and just another example of how stubborn car companies are. All they had to do was copy VW's set up for the push rod tubes and the problem would be solved. Not sure why they felt they...

Re: French Flathead

Can you remove the stock distributor and run a crab or helmet off the cam like Ford? I see a block off plate on the front cover. I never knew they made two types.

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

The IRS bank reporting thing isn't as big of a deal as would you think. Another thing to consider, wire bank to bank transfer is the only safe way to transfer large amounts of cash. Cashier's check...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

Update:

I used one of Richard's kits and all went together very nicely. One tip, if you're particular, you should use the '32 style round grease shields vs. the '40 "square" style.

I didn't...

Re: Hershey Thursday. ..Changes next year

I agree, consolidating the spaces into a smaller area would be in everyone's best interest.

I'm in the orange field and I'd venture to guess there were 50% no shows.

Re: Lincoln clusters?

LZ gears are stamped Ford, so if the count checks out they should be. The LZ 26 tooth set I have also has the tang on the back of the cluster. It uses a trust washer designed to sit around that tang

Re: flathead V8 4x2 intakes
