Re: Bert's, Bratton's, Snyders... How about a "Burtz" enging page

That is fine. And to add a FWIW, Terry could have it set-up on his site and then appoint a volunteer moderator or administrator to handle the 'baby-sitting' to better manage his time.

Re: Engine green

I had the paint refinish guide color chip scanned, and then I added 25% flattener to a 2K urethane paint. My theory is the only benchmark allowed in MARC/MAFCA adjudication is the Paint & Refinish...

Re: Bert's, Bratton's, Snyders... How about a "Burtz" enging page

Maybe I am still amiss on this. IMO Terry has done a great job of outlining this on his own website. Maybe y'all could talk his webmaster into creating a forum on his site that can be closely...

Re: Fitting top wood on 29 CCPU

I don't, ...but then again we make our own wood using the factory engineer's print as a reference for each piece's dimensions. If you are using someone's commercially available 'kit', then yes I...

Re: The new "Burtz" motor - onto the next project ?

Chris, I have a new SCAT crank & new rods in 3 of 5 of my Model-Ts. Les Shubert has already made a new Model-T aluminum block, -and the patterns are still around from the T-100 project that Ford and...

Re: Engine green

Bill, this is one of those things where each of our computer monitors will affect the hues differently, -therefore Ron's engine would need to be seen visually in person to make the determination. ...

Re: ideas on a cheap wash tub?

I have never tried the Molasses method but I have researched enough about it to understand that it is very slow and it smells 'rank'. Those two would be enough for me to not be interested, plus...

Re: Bert's, Bratton's, Snyders... How about a "Burtz" enging page

While I definitely do not have an issue with that, I'm not sure how much of a value that would be since everyone will likely have different needs. Think about how that idea would be on a...

Re: ideas on a cheap wash tub?

Ronn, the most simple is to use 2x4 lumber and deck screws to frame the size you need. Then use heavy plastic (that comes on a roll) or a torn used pool liner to line the inside of the framework. ...

Re: Engine numbers ?

Re: Wood graining

The issue I would think you would see if keeping the grain where it looks realistic. If you bend/stretch/layout vinyl around a curved area, it conforms to that shape so it skews the grain making it...

Re: Vinyl wrap instead of paint

We use wraps on our race cars due to costs compared to painting for visual appeal. We pay about $8.00 a square foot for the vinyl plus the graphic design work (-not applicable on most Model-A jobs)....

Re: '31 Model A Roadster Top Wood

The bow was originally steam-bent Oak that was varnished. The only repro bow available was a laminated bow, -and I am pretty sure that Pennsylvania-based company is out of business now.

Re: Looking for town sedan windlace like this

That particular pattern is not in production at this time. FWIW, that pattern is incorrect when compared to original fabric.

Re: List of businesses ,suppliers of parts , clubs, etc

I think the owner of this site likely removed it because the info was becoming outdated, -and hearsay was that he felt all of that info was available using Google.

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

Yes, I pretty much use IB330 camshafts exclusively.

Many reground cams back in that timeframe were refurbished with masters of unknown origin. Additionally, the centerline of each lobe can be...

Re: Surface corrosion on crank

Y'all use crocus cloth or emery paper if you like, but I personally would use cork only to deburr it and then leave the rest alone. Using any aggressive media on it will quickly egg-shape the...
