Oops, I guess he did both sides. Disregard
Surprised no one noticed that the backing plate is on the wrong side. The one in the pic is for the left side and it's on the right side. Short...
I use them too. Much better looking than regular clamps. A little lacquer thinner and the lettering wipes right off.
X2 on Duffin Engine Service. They just did some work for me. Perfect work and a quick turn around.
Here is my little granddog Chopper. Spent a lot of time with me. Loves to watch out the drivers window. Also gone now. Miss him ridding with me.

The machine shop that resized and rebushed my 331 Hemi rods said that oil holes are not needed. I too thought holes would be a good idea. There...
I got mine from Tanks Inc. They have different pressure pumps for carbs to EFI.
Brookville calls them trunk drains. I believe their part number is B169TD. Check out Ebay item # 270775787568.
Here are pics of the parts I bought from Brookville. Mirror images of each other.
Has anyone installed the trunk water drains that Brookville sells for their roadster? I'm trying to install mine, but they don't seem to fit....
1604 and Kyle Seal NW SA 32 Ford Roadster in progress
Excellent! Gives me some ideas.
A couple of things. First I couldn't find an original frame, so I had one built with a 2" stretch because I knew I was going to use a Hemi....
Excellent work. Nice metal work
Thanks for all the nice comments.
It's .030 over because of light rust in the cylinders. Yes, it will have a BBC water pump.
Good catch on...
Thanks I didn't open the push rod holes. Everything clears.
It's a '55 331 .030 over with 392 valves. Mild cam. Nothing special. Just going to be a nice driver for my '32 Ford roadster. It's got a...
I thought I'd share a few pics of my Hemi build.
