Re: Save the planet - "Drive a Classic"

I heard its been brutal in that part of the country. I even heard some factories are closing ...not because of the cold...but to lighten the load on the electrical grid. I heard on the radio where Ford is asking their dealers to help..... https://wgntv.com/news/ford-asks-texas-dealers-to-loan-f-150s...

Re: Radiator Hoses

The folks at NAPA and Advance Auto got to know me from going there all the time.....so they turned me loose in their back room to "browse" thru their hoses that were hanging on the wall. I eventually found some that could be cut and they worked quite well. Your local parts store probably would let y...

Re: Brett's 100e Anglia

looking good brett,,,I have to ask, regarding the grill, did you remove every other vertical bar? It looks menacing! I like it. How did you mount the front bumper guards? I have been thinking of hangin' something off of those tapped holes in the front frame rails.

they are similar in shape to the flathead v8...which the head was taller than a stock bolt. I ran a chevy disc in a flathead v8 which barely hit the bolt head, so I replaced them with ARP flywheel bolts ...which had shorter head height. Someone on the site must have another bolt for you, but if not,...

hey BigFred....I have 175's on my 300E. I dont know if I have the 5.2 or 5.6 rims as they came off of other models. The tire just does clear the strut, and the rim is literally "riding on the sidewall"....from so much sidewall bulge. There is no issue with fender clearance. With that said, I will be...

Langlia...your right...T5s are more plentiful. and they are bigger too. But if the T9 is easier to bolt in, then that might would be a better choice. I got my T9 from Merkur Parts Midwest. They show a couple on their website. Mine is behind a 2.3 liter so I am not sure about mating it to a Kent if t...

Langlia....lol...that is with OD !! yes I have been considering the new gears from the UK, have not looked at Turbosport but will. I have been wondering would it be the right ratio for the 2.3 and would i be happy with it. Gears, bearing, shipping, and set up can get $$$. I need to have some certain...

thanks Brett, You are right, its great around town. I am 2 miles off of the interstate but never use it...the speeds are 70-80 and it is just safer to use the back roads although it takes a lot longer to go anywhere. Being somewhat rural, it is about 10-20 miles to anywhere by the interstate. I don'...
