Re: 21" tires for a driver

I am more than pleased with the 21" Lester's I just put on my car. The tread is siped for better traction and overall gives a more comfortable ride.

Re: Early aluminum intake manifolds

When Ford went to the cast iron intake, the interior dimensions were reduced..... perhaps to save $$$$ on expenses, or was it to limit engine power ??
I use the 1913 aluminum intake on our '26 Runabout, with a NH straight thru and I my estimation runs better than stock '26 parts.
