Re: Cast Iron brakes

Good points as you and Gene noted.

I can see where they work better and Ford thought they must have been a good idea to bring them out in '31 from the factory. The rolled ends look more authentic...

Re: Seafoam

Re: Seafoam

SeaFoam isn't too bad but I've had better luck with Gumout Tune-Up with PEA.

Charlie take care of yourself---get plenty of rest, drink a lot of fluids. Good to hear that you and your family is on the road to mending. Covid can be nasty.

Re: Model T & A Era Only Car Show & Swap Meet
