    Thanks guys. I haven't been working on it lately cause I've been playing with my T at the hotrod hill climb and the race of gentlemen.
    But I'm back at it.
    Today I pulled the intake and heads off the motor I have for it. I'm going to freshen it up with a mild cam and new valve springs. Contemplating on new heads too.

    H&H has my heads and cam. They are going to give me the Winfield 1A grind and releaving the heads for valve clearance. Block is prepped for re-install. Besides that, I need to continue final assembly on the frame.
     
  12. About time you went back to work on this.......Just kidding. Looking good bud.
     
  13. Cool beans! Thanks, Tim.

    Wow-- very IMPRESSIVE build. Hard to believe thats the same rough body you started with. I'm already subscribed, just sitting back watching the magic happen. By the way could you take a minute to give an opinion or a story on a midwesterners take on the ROG? BILL RINALDI

    Spent a little time in the garage yesterday. Mounted the battery box I made and made a list of everything I need to do before I put the body on for the last time. It's down to 6 things. All I need is time.
     
  18. Hope things warm up a bit so you can get after it!

    Made a headlight bar the other day. Used a '32 headlight bar and cut it down.

    Well, actually it's whisper quiet...
    I'm hoping it gets some rumble back with its fresh ground Winfield cam and worked over heads.

    I pulled the motor and tranny this weekend as I decided to build a different trans for the car. Since I put 3.54 gears in it , I wanted a lower first gear so I'm building a 15/29 input /cluster trans. I think I will be happier with this set up.

    I would like that too. As soon as the chassis is done and the motor back in, I will get you that picture.

    Looks boss! I'm running a winfield 1a variant in my T roadster engine too. I love it, sounds great, it really hauls the mail.
