Re: Studs vs. Bolts?

I know all the issues that studs bring. Had them on a few Model A engines and all of my V8 Flatheads. Repairs become a huge hassle.

I glue them in to give the coarse threads more purchase. The gasket shellac works well for that, and is easier to get free than Loctite.

Re: Driving back roads in southern Utah

Also, explore the KMZ files on this site. They have gathered up a lot of data in those files. The "Utah Trails.kmz" is pretty useful.

They've also got more files on the other southwest states.

Re: Driving back roads in southern Utah

I've driven all over the Escalante area, and all around Lake Powell in Jeeps and trucks. Will be covering the area again in a T during another trip from Peublo, Colorado to Los Angeles in mid summer after the passes in Colorado are open. What sort of roads are you looking for? Easy dirt roads? Harde...

Re: Forum crashes - we know how to fix it!!!

Did something change in the logon cookie properties in the last week? Was the expiration shortened? Can it be lengthened? I used to stay logged in for days, or at least didn't have to re-log-on when I came back to the 2019 forum. But starting this weekend, or maybe Monday, every time I'm off the for...

Re: Pickup spare tire holder

Jason, that is one nice looking runabout (roadster) pickup! 👍 Sorry I can’t help out with the spare tire holder inquiry. I wish I had been able to buy it. Aside from the fiberglass fenders, it's pretty nice and was set up with a lot of modifications for touring. Model A carb and manifold, Model B e...

Pickup spare tire holder

I've heard that this underbed spare tire holder is an aftermarket accessory, but haven't found who sells them. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Re: Dan Killecut - Anybody Heard From Him?

I think the Facebook vs Forum photo appreciation is hard to measure. It's pretty easy to hit that like button on Facebook, and it's expected to make a short, fleeting comment, but on Forums (at least the forums and maillists I've been on since the '90s) you are expected to not comment unless you hav...

I thought Chaffin's had sold out of their reproduction. Are they going to make another run?

Re: BIG PROBLEMS WITH SHIPPING

I have 100% of the stuff I order shipped to my work address. Even Amazon junk, which they sometimes try to deliver after hours. Nothing gets stolen. Nothing shows up missing.

The only time I don't receive a package is when the shipper can't provide a tracking number. :evil:
