I have delt with Fred for years, starting in the 80s and he has been especially helpful for those parts that are hard to come by today.

Re: Aluminum heads

If you use period heads like Edmonds, stock bolts will work. If I remember right they are torqued to 50 or 55 lbs only. You can get new grade 8 bolts at Rural King or order a set or original bolts...

Re: 80lb oil pump with a 50lb gauge ?

Re: Head Gasket for 21 stud
