Re: '47 flathead

The engine has been professionally rebuilt. I don't have a video at this time, but I do have documentation. I am just looking for a ballpark figure as to its worth. Thanks.

'47 flathead

I have a freshly rebuilt '47 flathead. It has less than 100 miles on it. Anyone out there have an idea of what it's worth?

Re: Helping Get Rid of Sound a Bit

I found that adding dynamat to the backside of the panels helped a lot in deadening the sound.

Re: 56 2 Door Wagon, what weatherstripping did you use Rear Quarter Windows?

Re: 56 2 Door Wagon, what weatherstripping did you use Rear Quarter Windows?

I didn't find it too wide, and there wasn't any interference. You need to get one end uncrimped so that the stainless and the fabric will bend together. If it's not uncrimped on one end the stainless...

As was stated earlier, the power steering pump may be putting out more

Re: Borgeson power steering

It is possible that I didn't provide enough explanation, because I didn't anticipate the negative comment. It may be true that a "sheet metal bubble" could have been fabricated, but it would have to...
