Re: Installing a Y-Block in a 36 Coupe

Jerry. That is one very broken dog leg. If I were you with your recent misfortune I would stay indoors and type on the computer.

Re: Flathead Overbore/Size Feedback

Shortly before I married my wife I took her to a Chuck Berry concert. When Chuck did the "Duck Walk" I commented "Look at that old man cook". I think he was 46 at the time.
