Re: National Cookville tour

Just returned from the National tour in Cookeville, TN. George and Ramona along with the best group of volunteers from the Tenn T's I have ever seen, put on an outstanding tour. Great but challenging roads, exceptional lunches with drive through service, and lots of ice cold water for the 90 degree...

Re: Layne Transmission

Thanks Donnie & Erik. This one appears to be leaking oil/lube between the Kayne and the back of the transmission. New gaskets between both sides of the Ball Cap. Next step I guess is to decide whether it is oil or lube. Thanks again!!

Layne Transmission

Is the Universal Ball Cap (4th Main) needed when you install a KC Layne Warford -or does the Warford's input shaft support the back of the transmission??

Re: Crankshaft grinding

Scott - That is correct. The point is that the crank does bow a little in the setup, at least with this machine which has a spring loaded tailstock spindle, a feature of the machine to control this "squeeze" on the shaft before locking it down. The crankshaft straightens out again when removed from...

Would it be a fair question to ask just how many here actually own a crankshaft grinder and are experienced in the proper use of it?

Re: Let Chickasha begin

Re: Virginia State Inspection

In the State of Virginia, if one is going to use a vehicle for "daily driving", it has to be inspected. That is the law and I approve. If a vehicle is over 20 years old one can put antique tags on it and skip the inspection, but that vehicle can not be used as a daily driver. A Virginia State Polic...

Re: Where are you at Chickasha and what are you bringing?

Is anyone on here bringing any 'modern Ford' (--1928-31 Model-A) parts to Chickasha to sell? I am in the market for a few Model-A flywheels, a few distributors, a good front axle or front radius rod (wishbone) and a few other core parts. Send me a PM if you have some of this to sell.
