Re: Older OEM gaskets vs new gaskets

I'm not a dealer, but best gaskets are great. No issues.

Re: 50 Car Steering Idler Arm?

Slightly lowered my old 53 front using new springs. Everything cleared fine, which is strange you would have clearance issues with a stock replacement idler. Maybe I read all of it wrong. :)

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

I have not seen the pictures, but I agree. copper looks great against black. Technically black is the absence of color. But it is a color really. Same as white, total light. Both effect color. But...

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

Just a side note.

There are places to find weight of a vehicle. If you're friendly with a rock/gravel yard they can do it for free. DMV should suggest a place.
