Re: Matching photos, I think.....

I wonder what vintage wheels are on the car. I had one just like it on an "A" when I was a kid. It was a 16" with solid steel center and spooks on front side.

Re: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

That's a wonderful poem and song. I told someone Merry Christmas the other day and they told me I was politically incorrect, I should say Happy Holidays. I'm old fashion and I told them next to...

Re: king pin fit

If you got slop in the axle hole itself you got problems. With the hole in the axle clean and the spindle bolt clean you should have a slip fit or maybe even a peck through fit. You may be able to...

Re: Block Crack Sealer

It worked on a BO John Deere that wasn't pressurized. I don't know if I was so proud it sealed or so disappointed I wasn't going to get double my money back. I remember when I bought the stuff I...

Re: Just another nice old pic....

I think I can see a Model T roadster pickup way down the line. I know it's not a model A but a good old Ford. I think the man with the dogs is going to start a fox hunt.
