Re: Motor and trans wanted - with a geographical hiccup (I need it in NZ :-)

Hi Luke
I am in Invercargill and bought a 14 engine and trans from Nick Nicholas in Colarado.
He had a 26/27 engine and trans for sale recently.His phone number is 7192502991.
Well worth a call

Re: Speedster Project Update, pulled engine addressing oil and water leaks

Donnie, I have a 4 valve still to be fitted and am curious to know how you secured the inlet valves in the block.Does the guy who made the solid copper head gaskets still do them as would like to purchase one.I have been following your post and find it most interesting

Re: Brass radiator... clear coat?

I work in an auto museuum with a set of Ford letter cars so lots of brass.Would not consider clear coating.Even the best product will yellow the brass and it won't last and is a big job to remove.Best plan is what Reuben has done and use covers
