Re: Any help for a new guy?

Also, when checking compression with a tester, make sure the plate
in the carb is held open, so it can suck air into each cylinder in order

Re: Shoebox pulling a Teardrop

There are additives to add to your coolant that help disapate

Years ago, 1969, I got a complete rear end out of a '41 Ford 3/4 ton pickup

Re: Drive Collector cars How Much?

'67 Cobra 427-550 hp... In the last 4 years, I've put a little over 700 miles
