My superb new tires from Blockley went on easily. I use tire irons that are 17" long. The sidewall on my Blockley tires is much thicker and stronger than the flimsy tires sold by Lucas and Coker. They cost more but you get what you pay for. https://www.blockleytyre.com/search

Need a good late 1921 block

I need a good 1921 block. Mine has rusted through the water jacket into the valve chamber. My block was cast July 2nd 1921.

Re: 1925 California License Plate

Later the commercial plates were the same color as passenger plates. The were either marked SC for Solid Commercial or PC for Pneumatic Commercial. Trucks with solid rubber tires paid much higher rates as the solid rubber tires damaged the highways.

Re: I CAN'T FIND PARTS

I visited Chafin's and was amazed at the huge quantity of parts he has in stock. He is looking to retire and wants a million dollars for his business. I doubt that includes the building it is housed in. At my age buying a business is a silly idea. Not to mention the lack of having a million dollars.

Re: trying Evaporust for the first time

I haven't tried Evaporust but I am a big fan of Rust 911. I have even used it is the cooling system of my car. It dissolved all the rust from the block and made the radiator sparkling clean.

I[ am in the process of tearing down my nonelectric 1921. I found an original Ford script head gasket and standard bore pictons. This engine is well past being worn out. :-) I assume that it has never been torn down before. At any rate here is a picture of my no stater flywheel with a virgin ring ge...

Re: Please Id theses parts that I got along with T parts I purchased

It is a 1940 Harley transmission with an F0 casting mark. The transmission is for a knucklehead. The 47 transmission pictures were just reference. FO is for June of 1940. Most likely it wound up in a 1941 model as July was switch over month. These cases were made by an outside vendor. Had to be del...

In CA as long as the plate number is not in use you can register it. Sadly the number on the plates I bought are currently in use on a motorcycle. :-(
