Re: YOM License Plate Frame

Kevin, Search "adjustable license plate frame" on eBay. There's a number of them for sale that will work fine for your particular needs. Plus, many appear to be era correct.

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

You're going to get as many differing opinions on what oil to use as there are belly buttons.
I was taught in school (GM) that most critical is to use what the manufacture recommends and stay with...

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

Please stop using STP. It will cause more harm than good. Consider it "snake oil".

I'd personally rebuilt NUMEROUS engines in the past decades. It was always easy to tell what clients used STP by...

Re: 60hp

A friend of mine, Dan (rest his soul) put one in a Harley about twenty years ago.

Re: Heater in a 35 cabriolet

You won't find any factory photos as there was no such "animal" in '35. Thus, the installation will vary with exactly what heater you intend to install, the amount f effort you choose to expend and...

Re: 60hp

Perhaps just a bit off subject but if you are asking with the thought of utilizing one of these in a prewar Ford, you may want to rethink that.
These engines are dreadfully underpowered. They are...

Just want to wish each and every one of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
It's pretty obvious (or should be) that we all have much to be thankful for.

Re: Another Huge Loss to me

My heart is with you.
The fact that you miss him as you do is testament of the love you'd shared. That is a gift.

Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

Judging from the mixed reviews of both Red's and Waldron's, it appears to be a hit or miss kind of thing.
Either the system fits well or it doesn't.

Overall, I have been pleased with Waldron's...

Yes, real world experience. I checked the Rockwell on the last set from them and five of the sixteen were dead soft. I hate to think of the guys that didn't check theirs prior to fitting.

Re: 40 Ford windnoise

Frank, Typically within a "kit" you will receive enough bowdrill material to cover the front (wood) bow as well as the center of the #2 (steel) bow. The #2 steel bow only gets covered on the center...
