    That is very likely the case.

    I just can't see a TF as any part of the Hot Rod scene. When I was a Rodder in the 60's, one the last cars to be included would have been an MG. Unless maybe it had a V8 stuffed in there.

    Thanks for the idea.

    A lot of people in the 50's around here would name their car. That may simply be what the owner called it. Remember this is where the whole hot rod scene got started.

    Unless I'm missing something here, oil is already delivered right where it needs to be. The tappet is only under load for a short time, then it's at rest for another 1.5 (roughly) cycles. During that time, additional oil is pumped into the bushing which is now overflowing, and this ensures that as it comes under load again that the two metal surfaces are separated by a layer of lubricant. The o...

    That is what my paint shop says. I can get single stage or two part in spray cans.

    Looks like someone had access to a British junk yard or had a bunch of british cars lying around and decided to put them all together. Gauges are triumph. They actually are the same as the later TD, just have black dials. My car had a set of them as spares when I got it.

    Tyler, I seem to remember I had to put them in before I assembled the bumper bar.

    I think were talking different bolts Jim

    Ive seen reports on this new class of Radio control air craft....there freakin huge, ive had the dumb idea of building on of those and just jump on it for a flight with the radio control device in hand.

    If anything, it would make for an interesting death

    Hi Jerry

    A quick check of the on-line database will show the car as Y 5205 and that the car is on Ys on Parade with it's current owner!!

    I have sent Jerry an email back about the advert too, so watch this site :)

    the jet should be held rigid in the bimetallic strip.

    I took some measurements of the vertical lip of the inner wing at the arrows to the other corresponding side.

    The white arrow measures the exact same at the radiator support as my 74, 73 and 78 B's. The measurement taken at the red arrow is 1/2 inch MORE than the corresponding measurement on the 74, 73 and 78 B's.

    So, as you can see in the pic, the outer wing flange that has the bol...

    The dash is original but could use redoing. The rest of the interior has been redone. The carpet needs to...
