Re: Winter without a project?

This is a little late in coming but it took me a while to find these photos. Someone wanted to know what that panel truck was that was parked behind the one in the foreground. Here is photographic...

Re: French Flatty 59A clone Pt 3. Build continues. Plus Truck Motor Conundrum!

I've been enjoying your videos Mart. If it were me I'd take a chance on the French flattie. The extra torque of the 4" stroke is nice. I've used the tin foil balls on top of the piston trick in the...

Re: Winter without a project?

Re: Need color-coded spark plug wires for 59AB.

I agree with Tubman on Brillman. I have done business with them in the past. Their service is very good. I have found their products to be very good. Their catalog is super and they are close enough...

Re: Mart's 32 sedan. Troubleshooting misfire and overheating.

I'm glad to see you were able to sort the misfire problem. I wonder what temperature thermostats you used?

Re: wheel balance

There is one tire shop that I know of here locally that still has a spin balancer. I am thinking that would work fine on a wide five wheel. My father used to swear by those things saying "they...

Re: go fast shop long island

I called the number you gave me, DD and spoke with Gary's widow, Helen. We had a very nice conversation. Indeed the machine shop is NOT in operation at this time. But she does have a considerable...

Re: The 32 gets taillights.. Plus some good news to share! 2021 Ep 31 Pt1.

Glad to hear you cleared that registration hurdle. That can be a real challenge at times with these old cars! I like your choice of taillights. Are they '37 Ford?

Re: the build

The carburetor is bolted to the intake with four bolts/studs instead of three. Some of the intakes were cast iron, some aluminum.

Re: Speedometer gurus?

I still use a flip-phone also. Some of my friends wonder why but I am not a "phone zombie". I don't carry my phone with me all the time. If I need information I have a computer at home. I don't need...

Re: Mark Kirby/MotorCity Flathead's

I had dealings with Mark a number years ago. He was truly a man of his word. You cannot ask for more than that from a person. RIP
