Re: ultimate flathead

We have a local guy that we call Shades. He is always wearing Richard Petty type shades. I mean always.

Sometime after that I was out to Barger-Mattson wrecking yard and found a blown 350-cid Corvette engine in the inventory. I bought the camshaft, heads, distributor, intake manifold and carburetor and...

Re: ultimate flathead

Re: Early Ford V8 Flea Market

As of today, Hershey is happening in 2021. My hope is with the roll out of vaccinations, the curve will flatten enough to hold the event.

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

Wrench,

Are you sure about Ford reusing scrap? I thought that is one of the reasons Ford metal doesn't rust quickly was because it was virgin steel. I am far from an expert, but I've read that...

I'm doing the upholstery on my '28 roadster. The car didn't have seats, just repop springs. I've been "trial fitting" the seats as I go. Is there a bracket that holds the front bottom cushion on...

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

Would you help a brother out and let me round up? 292 sounds so much better than 291. :D

Re: Anyone used Irontite block sealer in a Flathead?

I was originally thinking of the two small holes that some blocks have, but now that I say it out loud, your block may not have them.

Now that you say it, I would remove the lower hoses after it...
