Re: The "W" Block

Like papanomad said above, the Chevy 348 and 409s were referred to as "W" blocks. I remember as teenagers in the early '60s, we referred to them as "dump truck" and "school bus" motors, especially...

Re: transmission floor cover

This is not a '33, but the pic should give you an idea how the rods attach to the frame. DD

Re: Help with transmission selection

Hey....I think that any of us ol' geezers with a Mid-Year car probably have a little too much money and time in these things, but at least you're honest about your concerns. I've had this car for...

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

Man, after reading that BBB report, this slime needs to be taking his daily showers right there next to ol' Bernie Madoff, with "Bubba" hanging-around to "ass-ist" frequently. DD

Re: Difference between pre 1949 flywheel and 49-51 flywheel

Nope, it's Sky King's old Cessna T-50. Below is an old Twin Beech 18 at roughly the same angle. DD

Re: front brakes

1940-'48 drum/hub assemblies from an automobile, as well as drum/hub assemblies from '40 AND '41 pickups. !940-'48 Mercury drum/hub assemblies will also swap-out. DD

Re: PU Frame Identification

Lon...If it actually is a pick-up frame, it's most likely that the center and rear-most S/N locations will not have a number stamped. They generally only stamped all three locations on passenger car...

Re: PU Frame Identification

Re: STREET MACHInES, Engines, gearing and etc

It's a 3-speed + O/D out of an '80s Ford pick-up that guys are adapting to Model "A" and V8 Ford torque tubes. The only real gain is synchros and O/D. Gear ratios are similar to stock Model "A"...

Re: STREET MACHInES, Engines, gearing and etc

Re: STREET MACHInES, Engines, gearing and etc

Re: Tubeless tires?

Perhaps you could explain just why running tubeless tires on a WELDED-SPOKE wheel would be a "very poor idea". What we seem to have here is very poor advice. DD
