Re: What motor oil do you recommend?

The way it looks to me is, no matter what someone recommends, someone else condemns for one reason or another. Our '30 Tudor has used the same oil since 1978. No zddp. Runs clean and strong after...

Re: Does your Coupe have a Trunk or Rumble seat

When I was little, my grand dad had an early 30 with rumble. Now that I have a young child I'm looking forward to seeing her ear to ear grin that first ride in our late 30.

Re: First Mini-Van? (not an A)

Very interesting. Great concepts all around, minus the noisy but smooth flathead.

Re: My milk shake oil is s-l-o-w-l-y going away.

Sounds like good advice to me. Make sure it gets and stays up to operating temp for a good twenty minutes before shutting her down. Which means, as I've stated in another thread, you need to take the...

Re: 1962 Mercury Meteor question

I don't think you can go that far with a 221, not enough meat. Same with trying to get to a 289 piston with a 260 block. I would bore only enough to true the cylinders and go with it. A fresh 221...

Re: 1962 Mercury Meteor question

I've never heard of it being done with a Y block, but lots of big blocks have made their way in to these cars. I'd say with a shock tower kit, your on your way... My little 260 sounds great cruising...

You're right, it worked once before, but they are making money hand over fist, so their effort is little.
