Re: Vintage Manual Tire Changer!

Yes, it is. Billy is 77, he got it when he was a teenager, and it was an old machine then.
By all means, come on down! I'll stoke up the smoker, we'll have some bbq and beer!

Re: Pictures of the inside of a worm drive #1

Poking around in the dusty corners...
I just had to bring this one back into the light.
Is there anything more beautiful than this work of art?

Re: layshaft

Could we be talking about a PTO to run a water pump, dump bed or wrecker sling?

Re: Putting Wire Spokes on the '28/'29

As a Chevy mechanic in the 80s, I always kept a variety of wine corks, golf tees, ball bearings and other miscellany in my tool box. A good Chevy mechanic always has a handful of parts left over, especially when working on a Ford! :lol:

Just some thoughts on this... If it wasn't factory, it shouldn't be required, and you sure as s##t shouldn't have to drill holes in your antique vehicle to adapt it. What about box vans? Is an interior mirror required so you can see the front of the box? How many people did you talk to? Almost every...
