Haven't signed in in a couple years. Life, work etc...
Anyway nice to be back. Still have my cars they just don't get driven as much
There should be thin rubber pads that the radiator sits on the the springs and nuts go on top of the radiator ears
I've got 2 with stock transmissions one of those has an overdrive and one with a T-5
I like you're attitude!!
Looks like its on a 30-31 frame the front crossmember is different than 28-29. Thats why the hood runs uphill. Clean looking roadster though
I've heard of bench racing, but chair racing?
Do you have your brake rods adjusted properly? The adjuster on the backing plate won't do much for you if the rods aren't adjusted. The...
The truck likes 50-55 without the O/D engaged
I have three different set ups.
Number 1 my 31 coupe stock 19" tires, B cam, 6:1 Snyders head, Mallory centrifugal single point, with a...
Looks basically the same today. The diner is really good if you ever drive through that part of California
It is always nice to find out a little history of what seemed like a random photo
I don't know anything about the picture it was posted on the Vintage shots thread.

Does anyone know anything about the Miller Denver head? I'm looking at an estate that includes a car that has one on it. I probably would not...
I did not know that. I have all the parts I've just never put it together
I forgot about the lower half. I think it would be a neat way to go. Probably the way it was done "back in the day" before adapters. I've...
I'm not going to argue with you on that.
You'll need a B flywheel housing too and you'll need to make your own side mounts as no one makes them anymore. Also don't forget the wishbone mount
My modernish pick up needs a starter so I've been commuting my coupe to work all week. It's only 4 miles but sure is a nice drive when I'm just...
Do you have it assembled in the right order? I ask because if you have the spring under the radiator it would move a lot. Below is the correct...
My stock car is on the road again after a year and the speedster is down because it donated its motor to the stock car
This is a buddy of mine and his older brother. He has the car back now
Is it AMC blue or Ford Green?
Yeah just the brackets and rubbers. My speedster uses that style to hold the windshields on. I lost a windshield due to the bracket...
