Re: french grass track in 1953

Looks like that 36 was the winner. Would like to know what engine and work was done on it. It may have had one of those French Military engines........

Re: 34 pickup wood question

Metal cover is the correct thing. White oak makes excellent foundation wood for the bed and should be sealed with a good wood sealer.

Re: whats this fuzz growing in my new radiator?

Some of the peddlers sell a sacrificial anode you can put in your rad that should help stop that stuff. I have seen the same thing happen with alum. heads on a engine.

Re: Flathead Re-builders....Do You

If you used a steel or copper gasket and coated it with a sealer like "copper coat" you would not have a problem.

Re: 39-40 coupe struts

If you have a good set of original shocks they do quite well. As for adding tube shocks, there are brackets that show up on ebay quite often for the rear of 35-40 cars and trucks.

Re: What in Tarnation?

Re: 37 fuel tank

You also could drill out the tube even with the nut, drill a couple of small holes thru the nut on opposite sides and use a easy out.
