Re: L100 vs. 1007-LD cam specs. ??

Re: 48 ford f1 complete bed replacement

The Mack Hils beds are very good quality and they are available
either knocked down or assembled. The knocked down version does not come with any assembly directions however.

Re: David Pearson

Ahh the good old days of NASCAR. Real drivers in real race cars. I used to go to two or three races every year. Nowadays I wouldn't walk across the street to see one even if it was free!

Need RTV advice, please advise....

RTV gasket maker/sealer is mighty handy stuff in the right situation. I use it on my old Fords as well as my daily drivers. It's good for thermostat housings, water pumps, etc. What I find annoying...
