Re: BUSINESS FOR SALE

Thomas, I cannot disagree. It takes a lot of dedication to make a business successful. But I think you will agree that a business is quite successful when you start with a small $2,000.00 inventory and grow that to near $1,000,000.00 with out borrowing a single dollar. Thank you for your comments Glen

Re: HELP. MODEL T NOISE

Pulled lower pan and checked new crankshaft clearance. No clearance problems. The only thing left is transmission, U-joint or rear axle. But how would these make a knock heard in the engine? HELP
