Looking for someplace that knows how to do a 8ba flathead. Just need all of the machining done.
maybe pm kevin lee or if you'd like to drive to Joplin I've got a great guy down here.
Who's the guy you use in Joplin Ryno? I've been looking for a machine shop that will work on flatheads in the area.
Mann's can do it for you. They are on Trueman road across from the high school. Don has been around for ever. Ask for Dana if Don is not around. I think that Don doesn't do as much any more but he is there as a rule.
I am south of KC. What is the name of the place in Joplin. Its about 100 miles for me to Joplin, KC and Springfield. So traveling will not bother me.
monte ward is in carl junction, he does all my motor work for me.
hes an old hot rodder and knows his shit.
pm with his # on the way!
Going to bring this topic back to the top, well because I want some work done and I require them to know what they are doing.
My friends call me a$$hole because of it.
I just say I want people to as good as job as I require of myself.
(most everything I say will have a hint of sarcasm in it)
So I have been lurking for quite awhile.
Most times I can find the info I need from searching and reading.
This place is full of colorful characters.
I just got into the flathead world with the latest purchase, 41 Ford Pickup.
Well it was two of them, three engines, and two more frames.
I'm looking to build one as a warm stocker and the other as a blown patina truck.
I've known about Mann's for along time.
They had a killer Nova wagon back in the 80's at KCRI all the time.
I'm in Gardner KS but won't mind driving up to a few hundred miles to get the correct work done.
