Re: Flathead city, Gary Howard, Grants Pass, Or

Re: 1938 Deluxe

There's a guy in town with a '40 pickup with '39 DeLuxe front sheet metal. Prettiest truck I think I've ever seen. Ford probably should have made it, but did they? NO.

Re: 1938 Deluxe

There was a guy (I think on the H.A.M.B, or maybe here) who had a Model "A" roadster on '32 rails. The guy insisted that it was original Ford and that the factory "used up" the remaining Model "A"...

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

It was done by a guy named "Dave" who runs the machine shop at the NAPA in Baxter. He told me that he had never done a flathead, but had worked for a Ford implement dealer and had done a bunch of...

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

Are you kidding me? Factory specs say 55 lbs at 2000 RPM and 25 psi at hot idle. My engines meet these specifications. I can't help it if you have a bunch of worn out boilers.

Re: Latest bubba report

I'm glad to hear that you're all right. I know I am deathly afraid of falling these days. I am very careful and watch my feet constantly.

Re: 4th of July.

I was "obligated" to stop by the local liquor store yesterday. Your question piqued my interest, so I checked out the "little bottles" they still keep behind the register.

No more pints or...

Ron, I'm old too. Why do you think the old time driveways only had two strips of concrete about 18" wide leading to the garage? If they had been completely paved, there would have been a big stripe...

Re: Electric fans

I agree Mr Coopman. There is a guy on the H.A.M.B. ("Hnstray") whose signature is : “In any conflict between Physics and Style, Physics always wins”.

He's right.

Re: Will 59 A-B flywheel fit an 8BA ?

They did that back in the old days with V8-60's in midgets. I've seen an old picture or two.

Re: Antique Insurance a little off Topic

I have Condon & Skelly, have had them for years. Never had a claim so I have no idea how good (or bad) they may be.

Anyone care to comment?

"Early Times"? "Old Grand Dad"? We seem to have some "Traditionalists" here in more ways than one.

Re: Coil for flathead

OK, I'll go ahead with guessing. Since he may be asking about a 59A in a Model "A". I'll guess "can coil". If that's the case, you cannot go wrong following "Charlie ny"'s advice.

Next subject?
