Re: What is Engine 'Break-in'??

Bud ,I think the tappets are continually oiled from the oil pump. It pumps oil out into the valve chamber , out the side drain pipe and to the timing cover.

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

77 and still working in the shop. Will keep going as long as I can. I lift weights regularly and think this helps a lot, keeping active.

Re: Cleaning parts

Car washes prohibit greasy parts cleaning. As you said it goes into the drains ,often cloging them. You are doing them a disservice if you do that.

If you use model airplane hot fuel proof dope on a clean gage, you just let it dry overnight and it will be done.

Re: F100 steering box for 30` Model A

Dick,if this is for your AV8, clearance can be a problem at the header.

Re: Are aftermarket hoods any good?

Another vote for Rootlieb. There are not many good used hoods here. A friend has looked at several,none worth bringing home.

Re: F-100 steering box conversion

I did not get it from Randy. I know he does good work. I simply did not like it as well as the original box.

Re: F-100 steering box conversion

I tried one and did not like it. I rebuilt my original and used a shortened pitman arm.
