Steve, At my age, I try to stay away from those places...

Neil, I did receive your e-mail and have answered your e-mails but no responses back. Maybe they get lost on the way "down under".

Re: "Pride Goeth" or "The 15 Mile Oil Change."

Been there, done that..... If you started the engine, even for one second. You might as well plan on removing the hogs head and lower inspection pan. No way to get all the little pieces out without removing the covers. :( ..

Re: Going to Model T Haven tomorrow. ......

I believe it is still for sale, but it is still open for business as usual . I just hope they are open tomorrow and Mark is not gone somewhere to pick up a load of parts. I did not have a chance to check and see if they were going to be open. But I am 51 miles from there on other business, and headi...

Re: Status of New Fuel Tanks

The man that makes most if not all the tanks Lang"s, Macs, ect. sell, lives here in Arkansas. He is a one man shop and is nearing retirement age. All the tanks are hand made with very primitive equipment. He does beautiful work. I believe he does runs of aprox 50 tanks at a time, split between round...

Re: Petit Jean swap meet update and pictures

Vendor count seemed to be up just a little bit. There were some empty spaces but that could be because of all the flooding of the Arkansas river affecting some of the local vendors. Saturday crowd was a little smaller. Seemed like the "lookers" or "tourist type" of crowd was smaller. Again this coul...

Petit Jean swap meet update and pictures

Sorry to take so long to post the pictures from last weeks Petit Jean swap meet. I guess I do not move as fast as I used to :( :( . As to weather, the swap meet was probably the best I have been to in years. The temps were in the 80s during the day and 50s some of the nights. In 40 years of setting ...

But overall everything is looking great. The south route up the mountain, thru Perry is open as well as the east route thru Morrilito...

Re: KR Wilson pan jig ... finally restored :)

Thanks for the comments. The Blanchard grinder had a capacity of 96 inches long with an accuracy of .001 in 96 inches. The pan jig is about 36 inches long. So my top surface should be within less than a 1/2 thou. tolerance. I plan on building a table top/cover to place on top of the pan jig. That wa...
