Re: TIG welder recomendations

I'm in the same boat. Would be a nice to have, but prices (even used) have kept me away. Got me a cheap Chinese plasma cutter (220V), and it has been great. Cut up a buddies entire Land Cruiser in a...

Re: Holley 94 throttle shaft

Re: ARP bolts

That is an excellent article. Even as a mech eng I learned something. A Gr 8 bolt is a Gr 8 bolt no matter who makes it. This of course assumes manufacturers abide by recognized standards and quality...

Re: ARP bolts

I agree with Ron. After waiting for an eternity in trying to source some Gr 8 flanged head bolts from Hillman, I broke down and purchased some ARP flange head bolts from Allen Fasteners. I believe...

Vintage Ford V8 Signs

Always admired this Ford V8 sign hanging from the local garage. I’m sure he has been offered a pretty penny many times over tbe years. Been there ever since I moved here over twenty years ago. Show...

Re: 29 Woodie for sale

I'm by no means any type of Ford expert, but it seems the body behind the rear wheels was extended by one "square" compared to the drawings and photos provided. I would guess as @77Birdman stated...

Re: Their still out there

Yes, there are all kinds of cars/parts out there, but I think part of the problem are hoarders who have piles of parts/cars that they will NEVER EVER use. I personally know of someone who has three...

Re: What to look for on a preliminary block inspection?

Lots of good advice. It is a crap shoot, so good luck. Also, bring a helper or two if you decide to purchase it unless you already have a handy way to move it. Also, the coming storm may have a...
