Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

Thanks to all for the input. Carl, yeah, I sent mine to him just before he got really sick. So, I am almost compelled to run this after the small fortune and time I waited for it!

Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

Ha, it's been so long since I had a stock dist, I forgot about that! I think I will shim a bit and taper the bolt to lock it...The specialty motor cams link shows something close to what I thought...

Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

Jack, I had no problem with my distributor you show. I thought about the shim stock also. As much as I searched I cannot find any reference to a hold down on the Winfield, although clearly there...

Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

Thats what I am thinking, as well. I am going to put a taper on the bolt today and see if that helps. Still curious what the the original set up might have been?

Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

Re: Signs, back in the day

Modern one. The tip jar on the counter at my local liquor store reads: 401K. Pretty funny from the Syrian guys that run it, and it's always flowing over, so clever marketing indeed.

Re: Old sayings

Saw this from a youngster on Instagram, and not bad advice. "Fellas, don't let a $20 sun dress cost you 18 years of Child Support".

Re: Does this Babbitt look ok?

You can find a vintage babbitt scraper on eBay, sharpen it up nicely. I think I paid about $15. I bought a rear main at swap meet for $5.00, looked to be poured, but never installed. You might be...

Re: Theft of original license plates - is this an issue?

In California you need a pair to do YOM plates. A pair of clear plates are worth some money and not too easy to find. You can find singles at fleas and swaps all day long.

After toying with that idea and not feeling comfortable with the geometry, I went with Daves battery box set up, dual Mustang master is hard to beat.
