Nice big-n-littles on the Farmall!
Wow. Way to mis-characterize this, reframing it into a context that selfishly makes you seem like a better person.
This is about letting people...
Yup. That's what it is.
Doing the same thing everyone else has already done, over and over again, is tradition.
So, probably yes.
Well, actually, it was the chrome shops, irresponsibly disposing or waste that brought the hammer down on them.
What made chroming cheap in the...
My local crankshaft shop routinely welds them up, and pretty cheap too.
As soon as we are allowed out, I will be dropping off two Hemi cranks,...
My time is almost exactly the same thing as money, almost.
I don't waste my time with inferior products, because it is almost like wasting money,...
I wanted to make sure that I could not hear the gears in mine. Folks have told me that it can be really annoying.
I came up with a solution that...
I have a 144, a 170, and a 200 here.
No oil bath provision. Might have been a different region thing.
Exactly. Same shit product, different parent company.
Yup. I would not use Bondo brand products to fill a dent in a dumpster.

Crazy-town! I thought they were long gone.
I just bought 30!
I like to go to the drive-in.
If I wired my ignition like that, I might not get it started when it is time to leave.
Diodes are cheap, and easy...
Good luck getting that to stick.
I am currently working in thermal management, utilizing liquid cooling for onboard supercomputer clusters. Like...
I run my Falcon at 230ºF, all day long. It pushes no coolant out.
I would put a thermostat in it, with a bypass plate, as designed, if just to...
There is a Cleveland-specific thermostat.
It is designed to be used with an OEM water bypass plate.
Many Cleveland heat issues can be traced...

It has been a minute since I was down there.
I have sent cars to Germany, The UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
In every single case where the buyer did not come to me with cash, the...
Repeating history is traditional.
Nonsense. Getting only a fraction of the potential performance out of an engine, while wasting as much fuel in the process is traditional.
Someone gets it.
I run used pistons, on every single vehicle that I own, every time I start the vehicle.
Haven't had a piston failure yet.
Yup. If pennies were made of copper, they would cost way more than $0.01 to make.
Neither was I, and my comment went WAY over your head.
I am unsure that Humanity will continue as we know it long enough to find out.
When's the last 3-month period you saw 18 people you know die?
