  2. Thanks Tony, but I tried that movie star stuff. The fame, the fortune, being viewed as nothing more then eye candy for the ladies, not my style.

  4. While I was at work my dad decided he didn't like the fuel line bracket he built and built a new one.




    You may have noticed the switch to a stock tin rocker cover. I bought two N.O.S. Offy breathers and couldn't bring myself to drill holes in the Simplex aluminum cover.

    If I send you a self addressed stamped envelope, will you send me your autograph? Just put it on any old piece of paper that's handy, blank check, whatever;)
  6. Robert great job.
    why the rubber fuel line? perfect place for a "last forever" steel line.

  16. I know I said I was going to build an oil pan kick out, however after pricing steel it was cheaper to buy two S.B.C. clamier pan kits and modify them.

    My dad is a mad man! Came home from work and found he had already started to cut the pan and cut one of the pan kit in half he is very excited about this project!

    I don't plan to do much with the car this weekend, spending time with my Mom!

  17. I started to tack the oil pan kick today

    upload_2020-5-11_19-36-48.png upload_2020-5-11_19-38-2.png upload_2020-5-11_19-39-10.png upload_2020-5-11_19-41-0.png upload_2020-5-11_19-43-5.png

    This is the second oil pan kick the pain is to cut the marked X area out and weld the second kick to the first and then to the pan.

  19. I told a friend of mine I was getting ready to build headers.

    He said he had some exhaust in his basement from one of the long defunct Ford dealers.

    Wow, that's probably all the bends you need!

    NICE! That's like picking up, what, 2 or 3 estra HP free?

    Also, btw, IIRC those are the same all 4 years and my buddy's Tudor needs them if you're planning to unload them, FYI, since there's no Fitchburg this year.

    NICE! I'm happy to see my sticker got a place of honor on your door!

    revised for old eyes:
    Also, by the way, if I remember correctly, those are the same all 4 years and my buddy's Tudor needs a set if you're planning to unload them, just to put a bug in your ear, since there's no Fitchburg this year.

  26. My header flanges from Davies Speed Equipment arrived today.

    They are .375 inch stainless steel, I knew I was saving this pool ladder for a reason!

    Note the rust is a stain from the rack I had it hanging on, it comes right off with a 3M pad.

    And yes you did already see this post @tb33anda3rd I accidentally deleted the first one.

  27. My spindles are finished for added safety the bolt ons were often welded to the stock Fords.
    I don't have enough self-control not to T.I.G. weld everything.
