Re: The Ron Thorne Collection

I think you misunderstood my post. Shills are hired by auctioneers to create a sense of competition among the real bidders. I only mentioned shills to show that the effect is similar to what a few...

Re: The Ron Thorne Collection

Think about the relationship between a final selling price of an auctioned car, and the composition of the bidders. Without the registration fee, hoards of unqualified bidders drive up an unrealistic...

Re: 1948 Tudor sedan window "bugs"

No, you can't blame someone else for your own lack of research.

Re: 1941 Heater in 36

I've never seen a water heater installed on a pump in head block, but I'd think it would just be a matter of where to put the inlet/outlets:
The head pump being a pusher, the hose from the pump to...

Re: Looking for '49 wheat pennies

Pennies wonít get sucked up, the holes are exhaust, not intake.

Iíd also be concerned about vacuum leak by using a stainless shim.
