Re: Cosidering juice brakes

I've got a '38 fordor with stock cable brakes. They work great, never had any issues. Adjust them right and your good to go or stop.

Re: Custom 1939 Ford -- Really!

Right you are Lanny, that looks very similar. The cobra looks totally different from all angles except for the angle front/side view.

Re: Custom 1939 Ford -- Really!

That's pretty cool, different but I like it. Almost like a cousin to a 60"s ford cobra.

Re: Offenhauser/Edelbrock heads 59AB

If they make them like their holley carb bases, I wouldn't touch em with a 10 ft pole. I couldn't resist buying one just for kicks and giggles as they were $15 cdn. The thing is so far out of spec...

Re: The Good, the bad, but no ugly

Semi related side note. I've used both cork and rubber glass bowl gaskets. One time when I removed a new rubber gasket, I set it in a jar of gas, thinking to keep it from drying out and shrinking. It...

Looking good! I sure do like the contrasting colors, both on the underside of the car and fasteners; looks sharp.

Re: timing

You should be able to remove the bolt and plate with hash marks completely to clean it up, then reinstall. The internals will stay in place and shouldn't move as there is resistance on them. Then you...
