Well made it thru another day in the misery hole. Didn't do a thing to the fleet as today is my 87th year in this life. I did start the 32 & park it in the driveway as some car folk came by to wish me happy b'day. we B Sd for a couple of hrs.
Tomorrow I hope to start back on the 34 roadster to figure out what I am going to do about the valves tapping the heads. All new valves & Isky springs. High lift cam L-100 grind 373 lift & the heads were resurfaced & the block decked.

Burn-out-Bob: congratulations on your milestone! Margretha and I pray that your new year of life will bring all that you most desire - to include finishing and driving that "hot rod" '34!

Probably too hot to work today anyway. And the weekend will be worse. Assuming you're still in AZ.

Happy birthday! Sounds like you are doing great. That is a very beautiful Roadster. Solution? Just add another couple of head gaskets.
