    She's broke!

    I second the Vintage Power Wagons idea. Lots of good prices there.... Sometimes you can find deals on eBay, but not often.... I am bummed to hear about your troubles. I hope that after you repair it, it will give you many years of good service.

    ‘37 air cleaner decal question

    All my 1930's air cleaner's are have no stickers....(probably fell off). I am not sure if my 1938 Plymouth truck has a sticker or not. Hmmm

    engine studs and gearbox gasket set

    As far as transmission gaskets go... I am trying to remember if it was a company named "north" or "best"... Hmmm. I will try to find that for you if I can.

    engine studs and gearbox gasket set

    Hi Franky, The last 230 I built, I pulled out the head bolts, measured them, then contacted ARP to get the head/block fully fitted with studs. If I had more time, I would tear an engine down for you to get the correct sizes researched. I kinda need to do it anyway. And this time, WRITE IT DOWN.... I am silly for not doing that in the first place.

    318 Poly info help

    I spoke with Mike Harding today. He is going to reach out to find a intake. He was involved too... Roland was the biggest inspiration. After his death, Mike has kept his Plymouth going with that same intake manifold. Roland is still missed... I met Gary some time ago, I admire his drive in keeping the Poly alive. Wayfarer, do you know Mike? He used to do Hot Rod TV. When I first began my old shop back in 2002, Mike and I worked together. He and I still have our old Plymouth's with the same engines in them. Man time flys!

    My buddy Mike Harding has a fancy 4 BBL on his Poly... Should I ask him about it? Could be the same folks that made the one your inquiring about.

    1940 Windsor Coupe Triple Carb Manifolds-Which carbs to use?

    I want to see this thing in action. It looks amazing. If you were to build a radical six, like the Montana boys for example, perhaps this would be beneficial.... Life is full of risks, sometimes you just got to go for it. Trial and error is what makes things better.... I own AOK manifolds, and am going to use them. But if I build one more project, I will need an option. Offenhouser Manifold doesn't suit well with me, and buying a welded up broken Edmunds from eBay doesn't seem the way to go either.... I totally like it that there is one more guy out there trying to help us make a Flathead go!
