Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

I'll be 82 in 3 weeks. A 5 year cancer free survivor, colon and liver. My doctor said as lucky as I am I should take a trip to LasVegas.

Re: 4 post lifts

I also have 2 4-post lifts and a 2 post. I use the 4 posts mostly to store 2 cars. The 2 post does it all including storing one in the air.

Re: Deluxe front end on 40 pickup ?

Forgot to say I had a complete '40 Deluxe front clip. Just located the fender mounting holes to the side of the cowl.

Re: Deluxe front end on 40 pickup ?

As they say, hang the hood first, which is what I did. I then grafted the sides of an old junk '39 deluxe I had. By hanging the hood first I could then see it only required small pieces on the cowl...

Re: Funny story

I always thought it was to either keep the chickens out or in some parts of the country to keep them in. Coupes are for chickens. I have a roadster.

Re: The cars that made America.

When Henry introduced the new 1928 Model A it was really new. It was a 1931 slant windshield Model A. Series is full of crap like that.

Re: Flathead VH engine cradle or dollie plans?

I use (2) 2x12s to support the pan rails and fasten together at ends with suitable length 2x6s to keep stable. Added casters later screwed to the underside. Notch 2x12s as needed.

Re: Draglink zerk problem

If the zerk is bottomed out it will prevent grease form flowing. Back out a little and see if that works. Worked for me.

Re: Merc or Ford rods ?

I used a 4" crank and 3 3/4 pistons. 2 head gaskets make for the proper clearance and just right compression. I run in my flathead vintage dragster. I can leave the line at 3500 rpm and spin the...

Re: Iowa Auction

Re: Look what I found out in the woods

Bob C has it. Looks just like my '36 1 1/2 ton I have. It was last a wagon due to the tongue on the front axle. A common practice after WWII.

Re: Swap meet shade ????

Did that in 2002 for Bonneville as a spectator. Bitten by the Salt Bug, I returned the next year with a race car.

Re: offy trouble ??

They make a triple intake with wider spacing for using 94's. I made a wedge for the front and rear carbs to tilt them away from center carb because I too have an intake with the narrower spacing.

Re: 1957 Fairlane Power Steering Conversion

I'm putting a bolt-in Borgeson power box in my '57 Ranchero. Not cheap but they engineered it properly. Comes with the correct pitman arm.
