    Lost A Good Man

    Very Sad hearing of both Patty and Bob passing. Much too soon as the saying goes. Bob was a very good Man, very community minded and played Santa for many years. Cancer and heart disease he did battle. Bob and I shared a real kinship in our chosen Professions, that outsiders would never understand. Bob and Patty were very generous and giving people, Patty was a School Bus monitor for years in there home county. Bob was especially generous to my Son and sent him many little gifts when he was a little guy. God bless, you Mr and Mrs Drown you are sadly missed folks. So you folks in Neversink keep on the lookout for the " Wayback Machine" it may be driven again from the cosmos. Bobs posts and pics were both entertaining and fun. His usual line was I " just had to"... There were those that openly chastised Bob for his numerous picture threads, but many of us encouraged him to keep on posting. Rest In Peace my friend, i just get the feeling Bob has seen this thread.

    1954 Fargo Clutch Linkage

    My sentiments exactly. If the linkage cannot throwout bearing and if linkage is all installed correctly it leads me to believe something else is going on. Pics of the inside of my bell minus throwout bearing and holder.

    Hydro flooded town

    So you trimmed your " toe nails" and have assimilated into society to build cars instead of being a scary legend? I agree on the findings if remains or of any bei g captured or killed. Certainly no shortage of stories or sightings in No Cal, Oregon, Washington, and BC. Even Manitoba has had sitings. I will say this though huge tracts of heavily forested lands up here could hide remains of any species from discovery indefinitely...

    The Extremely Versatile Universal Slant 6

    Yes have seen that very video. And many more. Even in a relatively stock form, this car would be peppy.
  9. Slant 6s were installed in cars and trucks for many years 1959- 87. As well as the Industrial applications for farm and industry. Here is a new use for a 1971 Slant 6 ot of a 71 California Cuda. Attached is an A833 trans. 2200 lb car, should launch well. Needs driveshaft, clutch throwout setup and rad/ electric fan and she could be test driven.

    Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    Hey all, should have made my " queries " on this thread. What is the Status of this build? Has there been any updates or details of where this engine build wound up?

    Flathead 6 for 1933 Dodge to drive Peking to Paris

    Wonderful side trip guys, but do either of you have any idea what happened to this project and proposed road trip? Montana Dodge Boyz were to build the engine, what happened in this case. Did the 230 engine ever get built? Be interesting to find out where this eventually went....

    1954 Fargo Clutch Linkage

    Allan is the throwout bracket in mine the same position as yours? You need more travel correct? Was this always the case? Is the release bearing and retainer in the correct position on the throwout fork?
