Re: My intro - and I'll probably have a flathead question tomorrow

Look like '50 Pontiac to me; very popular for roadsters
back then.......

Don't worry about the cracked port; too common w/ f-heads.
A GOOD machine shop will be able to repair it.

Congrats on...

Re: Three Carburetors

And f.w.i.w., a reputable flathead tuner, told me, not too long ago,
that a 2 carb setup will outperform 3 carbs on a 3/4 race f-head
street engine any day of the week - (especially on Sundays!)

Re: 12 colors available in 1940

All good points this morning, gents.
As for two-tones, was not aware they were offered in '35-40 models. Can't say I've ever seen a stock one anyway...
To Kube's point re color perception; yes,...

Late to the party here, but wanted to thank everyone for the

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Ugh, I do not look forward to this fugly part of the body work;

Re: 1936 Phaeton - Indoor cover

Another vote for C.C.C. In the unlikely event they don't stock
one for a particular model, they will make you a custom cover
(or at least they once did).

Re: Bad rebuilt starter from NAPA

Yep, it's a different world today. I would bet most, if not all of the parts house suppliers, sell cheaper, imported hard parts, especially
starters and alternators. The cores are shipped over by...

Re: Project getting close to the finish line

Yowza; absolutely gorgeous. The contrast of the exterior and
engine colors is beautiful. I'm green with envy.....

Re: PNW Flathead Rebuilders

Portland Engine Rebuilders is also a good firm.
They did the hot little flatty in a 34 pickup, recently donated to
our museum (WAAAMuseum.org). Also did a 460 BBF for me
more recently. High...

Re: Dropped axle

TJ; how much was your axle dropped? Its my understand-
