  9. Yup, let's keep it traditional. Here's an updated pic of my newly rebabbitted A banger with Winfield 6:1 head, Burns intake/side cover, and dual Strombergs. Need to clean it up a bit, but all parts date from 1946 or before - even the spark plugs :)

    Go Gary! I think I like the colors are plenty fine, especially from this angle, from the bottom of the engine... I don't know.

  11. Thanks! The green is growing on me...next step is a raw magnesium timing side cover and a full-length header (possibly chromed). I dig various natural metal finishes... Here's my draft of the header, (rough & not to scale) I drew over lunch one day...

    Anyone know anything about these worm drive hose clamps with the thumb screws? They turned up on the restoration of the Walker/Morrison roadster as well.

    Ha! And you though I was a sick puppy!! from the TRJ journal article on the restoration of the Walker/Morrison roadster. And after they machined them, they had them chromed! :confused:

    ^^I really love this, and not just the hose clamps, the whole picture. This is one of those deals if I saw it at a car show, I would find myself coming back 3 or 4 times. Where did you get the clamps, just scouring swap meets and ebay?
    I have a nice 59AB core and trans, as well as a full set of '40 wheels, dash, column jacket and steering wheel, all stuff that came with my '39. Not sure what I will do with that stuff, but it will probably get used someday.

    I was looking through my old magazines and saw an article on different types of hose clamps. I will find the mag and see what it says.

    They are aviation spec clamps. We have them at work on turbine engines. Some of them are drilled for safety wire.

    You can see a hole for safety wire in the Wittek clamps beside them, in the original photo I posed in response to GWhites post about chroming his headers.
