  • Sounds like what I did, throwing out a Chevette frame and building a frame for a Ford driveline. See build thread called Building Alfred.

  • The valve cover is connected to the rest of the crankcase via the oil drainback scheme. Blow-by from a leaking piston ring would cause increased pressure in the crankcase and this is one really common  way for valve cover gaskets to get blown.

  • We bought a mountain home in Pine, CO. About 40 minutes SW of Denver. It’s all about the grandchildren that live in Denver.

    No shroud on mine. Too hard to line up fan with radiator. Gauge reads 200 degrees but a thermometer at upper hose is usually 185. No overheating so far.

  • Just received my sticker yesterday. Also received a firm date for the moving van that will take us from Maryland to Colorado. Both to happen on May 16th. Trying to figure out how I can spend May 16th supervising the move and then going to Carlisle after house is empty. My wife asked where we can sleep on 16th. Told her I do have a hotel…[Read more]

    Now where have I seen this before? Oh yeah, it’s on my Alfred…

  • I also have a perfect Fiberfab dash for sale.Gabe

  • I used one of the new one-wire alternators. Works great but had one problem. It drained the battery after a while. I had to install a relay to disconnect it when key is off. No problems after that. Was told that the alt I used is a racing alternator and those guys don’t worry about drain current.

    There’s nothing like a good old hardware store solution. Getting soooo close.

    The car tracks very well. The major difference I have found between this car and others I have had is that it “likes” to enter a curve much more than others and I have to be more aware when exiting the curve. But that’s a good thing. Just have to get used to it to take advantage of this feature. I have yet to drive it hard in a very curvy road as…[Read more]

    The flexible bumper type of epoxy should be able to work for your filler tube. I would cut out the extra, split the removed portion and glue it all back together. You’re a handy guy, after all of the other stuff, this is easy.

  • A professional transmission mechanic friend of mine showed me how to use Vaseline jelly to hold parts in place during assembly. It all melts as soon as engine is started.
