Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

No it will not pass fine point judging.

Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

I own both but favor my 28 Tudor. I can almost imagine being the one with both Henry and Edsel standing next to it in that famous picture.

Re: Synthetic Oil for Model A

I can't argue with the advice you were given but most of you are doing your Model as a real disservice. You need to follow the motorcycle guys slogan from the 70's.

When buying a water temperature gauge, look for as low a maximum temperature as possible, maybe 230*.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.
