Not 2020, but here's one of my old '36 3-window with some glorious Minnesota fall foliage about 25 years ago.

Re: connector sleeve for choke rod

On a '36 I had years ago, they were soldered together. I heated them up with a big soldering iron and they came right apart. When it was time to put them back together, I used the same big iron to...

Re: Use of a Big 97 Stromberg Carb.
