Default Fun at Mart's. Ol' 59 Flatty! 32 Sedan! Plus vintage machinery!

Hey, hey, hey, welcome to Marts garage. I start making good progress with the Ol 59 flatty, but it's a case of two steps forward and one step back as I make an unwanted discovery. I bust out the vintage Buma boring machine and start hogging out the rusted cylinders. I do a little bit on the 32 Sedan, finalising the front shocks and showing how I set up an f1 steering box. The same procedure is used for most post 36 Ford boxes and many others so hopefully someone might find the info useful.

We will be waiting to see how that last cylinder accepts the liner.

Thanks fellas. That crack presented me with some challenges. I hope the liner job is successful.

Thanks Mart. That steering box bit was quite pertinent.

Thanks Will. I hope the early Ford tech content proves useful to people. I've described the process many times on here. Having it in visual format normally helps.
Mart.

You are one resourceful guy Mart. You find ways to save these flatties that most of us would give up for scrap. Love the progress on the 32!
