Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Support the cable with a plastic wire tie so that at least 4 to 6 inches of it feeds straight

Re: flathead engine stand

Do NOT bolt a pre 1949 Ford V-8 engine to an engine stand buy the cast bellhousing.
Not safe. May break the cast iron. 1949-53 there is no problem.

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

I also carry this home made tire lever that makes it east to remove and lift a tire without straining your back. Made it from a gardening hoe tool.

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

big job,

If possible please post a couple of photos of "the best invention" you mentioned
in your post above. Does this invention fill the tire with exhaust from the combustion chamber?

Re: Carburettor storage.

Do what aussie merc said and then vacuum seal the whole package. Might be a good idea to squirt some silicone on the fragile parts first.
