Re: 34 Roadster Tack Rail Strips

Conveyor belting cut to the correct cross-section works very well as a tack strip.

Re: Slightly bent flange on a '40 rear hub- Can this be straightened?

If the runout is not too great you could reface it on a brake lathe.

Re: Speedo changer for Columbia 2 Speed

Any early seventies GM Rochester 2-barrel diaphragm would work, will see if I can find the part number for you. Requires some cutting, bending and mig welding to keep heat from damaging the diaphragm.

Re: unusual 33-34 block

The 32 block came to me without the cam, only the crank.
The 32/33 transition engine was complete, came out of a 33 car and had been rebuilt in Winnipeg in the forties. It had a steel cam in it.

Re: unusual 33-34 block

I have a 32 block and a 32/33 transition block that both have cam bearings. Aftermarket or maybe a Canadian production practice?

Re: Early V8 Distributors

I have some NOS breaker plates, so no problem there. Does the early rotor fit the 11A shaft OK?

Well, I think you know the answer that! None of us care about the 90+%. It matters to us and the few that know the difference and appreciate the effort to create what we have. Ted
