Re: Charlie in New York

I reported both posts as multiple posts with unsubstantiated negative comments about a member with an EXCELLENT reputation. Hopefully they can be removed since they are without a doubt total BS.

Re: Mercury Motor I.D.

I've run across several 8ba's with a 3 3/4" crank that had Merc heads swapped on. I guess the thought was that bolting a set of Merc heads on a Ford engine would add horsepower but in actuality it...

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

MH Bus

This keeps popping up on the local Craigslist. Interesting with the MH front wheel drive. Would be really cool if it was restored but looks like a ton of work. Not mine nor do I know anything about...

Re: 1985 ford AOD trans.

I believe that a 1985 AOD has electronic controls. Going with a mechanical AOD will make things easier. I have a 302/AOD combo from a '83 van and the trans is mechanical with a carb. FYI: the trans...

Re: Shoebox Ford rear end swap

When I was looking for a later rear end for my '54 Ranch Wagon the closest thing I found was an 8 inch out of a Maverick. WMS to WMS 56 inches and change. Maybe a Fox body Mustang but it would be 4...

Re: 8BA Running Temperatures

Re: Southside Obsolete

Only placed one order and that was for NOS door latches for my '39 p/u. Obviously not a "regular" but no issues and very satisfied.

Re: Gas rationing A decals

I wanted a "C" sticker since Rusty would have been a farm truck during the war. Bought it off Ebay. Its a sticker for the inside of the windshield not a water slide.
