Re: 59ab

Thanks guys. Your link worked, mine did not as usual. If I had the need I would check it out. Price seems reasonable and judging by the background I would think someone knows a bit about flatheads...

Re: 59ab

Despite my best efforts I see the link didn't work. Perhaps a fellow Barner with techno knowledge can post a link that works. I don't get along with technology very well. Sorry.

Re: Cubic inch question

As long as we're on the subject of "corny".
Ma does a little studying of her own. She asks; Alright son, what is 2 Pi R? The son thinks a minute and replies; "Why Ma, 2 Pie are better than 1".

Re: Cubic inch question

At the risk of offending some. A hillbilly decided to go to college to study math. He comes home on holiday. Ma asks what he learned in math. He says; "Ma, I learned Pi r squared". Ma says; "No no...

Re: 1934 Ford auction results

Yep. Our '32's are fun and also "cozy". Our formula for entry is Foot, Butt, other foot and try not to damage the kick panel. Hard to do when a size 12 shoe comes into play. Once in with your...

Re: Wildfire evacuation

Thanks to all for your concern. It is incredibly smoky and dark. There was a fire less than 10 miles from us several days ago. Thankfully it was extinguished before it spread out of control....

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

Clogs every time. Have wasted quite a few cans. Sometimes they clog in mid use. I'd like to believe one shouldn't have to purchase solvents to soak the cap in. It's the only brand of spray paint that...

Thanks for your input. In my working career I've had some good financial times and some bad ones, most recently starting with the 2008 meltdown. I just retired and have recovered from that and YES, I...

Re: Car lift

Thinking about a 4 post car lift. It would be used infrequently. No room height wise to store one car over the other, just to lift the car up to stand or sit on a stool to work on the underside....
