Re: How to clean the rust & crud from the engine without running it through the radia

I flushed mine with the garden hose. Filled it with a mixture of RUST 911. I left it in for 24 hours, even drove the car. When I drained it the water appeared black. I refilled and let sit 24 hours...

Re: Looking a a 30-31 Model A title

Does you car have an original Model A frame? If so why not simply apply for a title and be correct. Performing a lien sale is often an easy way to get the title.
