  1. My Battery ground cable is directly connected to the block with a bolt connecting the bellhousing to the block!

    i have it grounded 3 ways to sunday !
     
  3. It started out as a simple brake job. I found that the bearing race on the right rear axle was gnarly bad.!
    The REAL problem is that the races on which the caged roller bearings run are rather permanently swaged onto the axle casing., Without a lathe to cut down the damaged race and put on a repair sleeve; through a friend i got a whole good axle case!

    I would really appreciate at that. I do have a dual detent shifter to go along with the later gear set. I’m thinking it’ll be quite an improvement. The only early Ford transmissions I’ve driven are the B box and Model A.

    Doesn't look like there is an adapter plate, how close are they?
     
  10. I looked at it today and it was not a B block
    I seem to recall a dodge but not sure

    Rich was a Dodge fan. Had all manner of cool ideas and engines. Anyone know what happened to his A?

  15. Rich’s roadster went on to New Zealand
    It has been upgraded to current SCTA specifications and should be coming back to complete again
    The motor will be another Dodge with a nascar head graphed on

    Saw this on the MTFCA forums, ordered a copy. Lots of fun to see what was going on over on the Continent. Think it is available off Amazon, well worth supporting a solid effort.

  19. It is two pcs 5/8” and 1-1/4”
    After all locations are done I will pocket out some of it to lighten
    There is still much to do before it lights

    Speedster Trials were in our plans, but my Son is in a cancer battle changed plans. If any of you pass by Windsor, Colorado (on I-25, 50 miles south of Cheyenne), you’re welcome to stop by.
