Re: 3 bolt to 2 bolt distributor adapter

I'm confused. The OP stated he is looking for a crab dist for his 59A engine. The 59A engine has a crab dist standard unless somebody installed an early 3 bolt front cover.

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Bought my first Ford model T when 15 and have owned a Ford of the '20's, '30's or '40's every day since. They have kept me from growing old at 76.

Re: 36 Tudor wiper question

That type of arm with the screw usually has a small serrated plate underneath that tightens up on the serrated shaft when the screw is tightened. Probably needs some penetrating fluid shot up inside.
