Re: Charming Photo of Henry and Edsel Ford

Edsel's story is one of the tragedies of modern business. A brilliant and talented individual. It's a crime that Henry couldn't accept him for what he was.

Re: 7 Tooth vs. 2 Tooth

I have a 7 tooth in my 28. I think it needs rebuilding. I hadn't thought about changing it. I want it to stay original. Winter project (one of many) I guess.

Re: Found Very Concerning Issue

If antifreeze is getting into the cylinders, you can often smell it at the exhaust. That would depend upon the amount leaking, of course, and the reliability of your sniffer!

Re: Where Do You Find Your Ford Parts

Sometimes you are forced to go to Drakes or Mac's because others don't have it in stock. That was the situation for a drag link for my 45 truck. It was made by Drake.
