Re: Part 8 of Mart's gearbox swap. First trial fit!

Mart, I admire your calm, keep going & git-er-done attitude. Just "pooching around" in your shop is always a treat. Cheers !

Re: 226 Flathead Ford Electronic Ignition with vacuum advance

My first car was a 1950 Ford 6 cylinder. Had the engine & distributer rebuilt & drove it hard for 3 years. Two owners & several years of abuse later, it still ran GR8 & the Load-o-matic worked fine.
