Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

83 next month. Glad I rewired the 48 last year, awfully hard to get under the dash now.

Re: V-8 Times

Re: Power Nation Flathead

Are any races like this happening in the PNW? I would love to see some of these live. Or any other events with flatheads?

Re: New car in the garage

I don't blame you, I'd probably be out in the garage with it all night. What a gorgeous car, they had so much class.

Re: 41 ford sedan vent window glass help

I think that what you are looking for is glass setting tape. I got some from Restoration Specialties. It comes in different thicknesses.

clutch disc recommendations?

After losing most of the year to other things I'm finally going to replace the clutch on the 48. I have 2 clutch discs to choose from, one from Fort Wayne and then an NOS 48. Any advice on choices?

Re: oil price.

The biggest problem with these prices is that it puts US domestic companies out of business. Low prices may seem great but I don't want to go back to being dependent on middle east oil. If the middle...

Re: A good quality voltage regulator??

I bought a NOS one from Barnfind08 for my 48 here on the barn. I had it tested when having the generator rebuilt. The shop that tested it said it was just fine.

Re: Wiring Dash and instrument cluster 1940

All good tips depending which route to go. Removing the seat and the return springs on clutch and brake helps too.
