Re: Changing of the Guard

Bob, what you speak of has some merit however allow me to add some perspective from my side of the fence.

Re: What is Engine 'Break-in'??

This is not really an accurate statement. As I mentioned above, technology has changed immensely, so people should not assume anything. Ford engineers were dealing with several differences between...

Re: What is Engine 'Break-in'??

This is a sign of poor engine machining where the journal pin is not truly round, -and/or has taper from a plunge grinding with a worn machine. Often times, engine rebuilders will assemble an engine...

Re: 29 Woodie for sale

Re: interior upholstery kits

Funny thing since they are the sole supplier (-they are the ones having it made and sell to the resto us) for most Model-A interior materials. What bodystyle & fabric did you order??

I don't trust online reviews for anything!! Basically, most negative reviews are posted as a retaliation for that consumer's own ignorance. :rolleyes:
