Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

Fun to watch, went so fast but I did not notice any assembly lube on the crank and cam, perhaps I missed it.

Re: New engine - intermittent backfiring - stuck valve?

Re: 35 Ford Hubcaps

Nice method Pat, kinda like using wide putty knives to protect drywall/trim when prying kick boards/mop boards/trim off drywall. Going to try this instead of my method above, next time.

Re: PicUp Rear Bumpers

Your 31 has a piece/panel under the tail gate, where your plate is mounted. I do not have that. Is this something only on 31s, or is this something you added?

Re: Drain valve question

Do not know if this will work, think it should. Just get some clear tubing that will fit tight over the drain valve outlet, cable tie it or super glue onto the outlet. Cable tie/mount the other...
