Re: 21 stud engine best upgrades?

Thanks for all the input guys. I do not want it to be fast just a little more peppy. I built headers for it and it sounds awesome. Seems from reading your posts that the heads are the first thing to...

Re: 29 standard top install

Pic of the top off. Wood is in good shape. The owner in 1952 was smart and primed the top before it went on. There is evidence of brush primer on other parts of the car. Must have been the worst...

Re: upgrade to 1932 brakes?

That is a great reply. Do they make drums for the later mechanical brakes or only the A?

A few people have told me I should update my front brakes to 1932. My car has a flathead 8 in her and I still run the stock A mechanical brakes. I bought some '32 spindles to get my tie rod more to...

Re: 29 standard top install

I have not bought a top kit yet. The one I am looking at is from Mikes affordable. I have done tops, but never a 28-29 that has the removable rain gutters or mountings. My mouldings are in poor...

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Well the shroud did not help that much. I ran it the other day, about 80 degrees out and she went north of 200 again. Any other suggestions before springing for a new radiator?

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Been awhile but I am still at it. Decided to make a custom buy factory looking fan shroud. Test drive tomorrow to see how it does. There is no air movement now outside of the shroud.
