The condition will reflect the price ,running complete or non running rebuild able or even short block etc. . I am in lower Michigan around the palace of auburn hills , can travel to get though . Thank you and I am just trying to help out a older gentle man that is having a hard time finding a 320ci engine to use .

  2. John: Below is a picture of the engine on my '55 Century. You can see the oil filler is in the valley: And for further reading, see this thread I posted a couple of years ago:

  3. Yes Urshimato, it me, turning the back to the camera! About value: this is a very subjective topic. I don't record the hours spent on that model, just the years! Once is sure: the material cost is negligible compared to the time.

  4. Thanks everyone for the kind replies. I hope my rant didn't come off as pouting and once I restored the pictures my blood pressure dropped to normal levels. I'm probably too full of myself to stop this tread anyway. On another note, I realized the other day that the restoration is taking a new turn. For the last three years it's been all about disassembly, removing rust, replacing old bearings, seals, broken bolts, engine parts and other assorted chores. Now I'm putting things back together and it's a whole new ball games. First, you now have to be careful of all those nicely painte

  5. Annie, I met the young man who was there with your Suburban - and am very impressed with both ! Sorry I didn't get to meet you, but did note that your '89 Suburban was properly recognized. Congratulations ! Marty

  6. I took a few photos of cars for sale at the meet so I have downloaded a few. This was my first Chickashe Pre-war and was surprised on the volume of Model T 'stuff'. Must be a great place to find anything you need for a 'T'. Lots of Model A stuff also. Nice restorable Lincoln Zephyr V12, nice running light blue 1911 Hudson, and a pair of 1932 Buick headlights and parking lights for only $1000, I shoulda picked them up for spares Chuck

  8. I'm sure we can help build a list, but we will need a few pictures first. Can you take the following pictures: The right side firewall, inside the engine compartment. The cowl, inside the right front fender area behind the passengers side front wheel well The bottom of the dashboard, right beneath the radio speaker area. The back side of the thermostat housing ( this angle requires you to stand by the right front fender, and shoot the picture down towards the engine radiator. The last picture is hard to explain but let me try. The best view would be if you remo

  9. Can't get the tears out of my eyes What a waste of a beautiful 1928 DB Senior Coupe When I see what some folks hack up to make a rod and with what I had to attempt to restore back to original my brain (What there is of it) goes numb That body is so straight and appears to be mostly rust free Pity I am in Australia or it would be in my shed Oh and he can keep the Ford parts

  10. I discovered a way to restore photos that the new forum format has cleverly removed. All my photos are URLs from Photobucket, done that way so you don't have to click on them to enlarge them when you're reading the thread. In this thread, all my photos from page one to page 26 were gone, replaced by the type spelling out the URL. What I did was go into each post that had missing photos and hit hit EDIT. button When the ready to edit post came up, I highlighted the first URL, copied it, then deleted it, then pasted it back in. In other words, I highlighted it, hit Ctrl C, then hit Delete,

  12. Thanks guys. I did find the shop manual for download on http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/ after seeing a reference to it elsewhere on this forum. It covers 1948-49. Says the brakes are 1.75" so that's good since thats what I ordered. I thought about keeping the upholstery and just sewing in new panels where it was split, but the fabric is too weak, at least where I checked on the front seat. It has several splits along the front edge, so I'm pretty sure it won't stand up to being sat on. I may be able to get away with just redoing the front seat. I'll take it on a case-by-case basis. I do w
