Re: Speedways new catalog=revolting

I believe the 37 Ford design to be the pinacle of FORD'S ART DECO design cars. I'm sure the 36 and 38 guys are going to be all over this. Of coarse 39's are the cutest. Nuf said.

Re: flywheel Q..

You'll need a cast iron truck clutch housing. The Merc. stamped steel clutch housing will not clear the 11" clutch. If you can't find one, I've got one for you. dickkiusalas@verizon.net

Re: Bad day on the road. Blown motor in Oklahoma

Thats just terrible. Call me if you need any parts. I've got a fuel pump or two I can send. What's your bearing size? You can do it all from under your roadster. Keep us posted....Dick

Re: 700-16 Tubes?

Fred. Coker Tire uses the tube for a 600X16 in the larger 700's . It just blows up bigger and fills out the tire with no probems. I've got those tubes in my 750X16's.
