  1. OK-- Here it is. Test running done. Last adjustments made. Ready to go in the restored 28' Shepard.
  2. Correct! I knew it was Lycoming. I couldn't find a picture. This is great! Thanks for the picture!
  3. My bad! YES, 6 ports! ---- I'm in the shop working on a Packard 8, so I have 8 cylinders in my head. OOPS
  4. OK, So I know some of you like puzzles. You did great with the old engine photos I posted. Now I am getting a little more into identifying parts. Any guesses? Eight ports on each manifold.
  5. The plan was to have the boat at the Packard Western Nationals and Rohnert Park California the end of June but of course all that's canceled. So after we get the thing back together I'll post some pictures.
  6. I just finished this rebuild. Actually, this one is the marine engine and goes in a restored 22' Shepard Mahogany boat. I also have another 356 that will be on a display stand. The other engine is the passenger car specification. The marine version is a right hand rotation, yes, opposite rotation from the car engine.
  7. HA! Well, this pandemic has certainly caused all action to come to a halt! I basically put the car away for now. I still have some things going, but with all the "shelter in place" requirements, no one is taking a chance on catching this COVID19 virus.
  8. Yes the Chevy's the easiest one of the bunch to identify.
  9. Okay how about the next picture? Let me see if I can attach it. I'm going to have to download these from my phone to my computer and resize them and post them that way. Not like I don't have anything else to do these days!
  10. Here's another picture. One of them's going to be easy for you to identify.
  11. Helping clean up and organize my neighbors goodies. Unfortunately he passed away in 1999 and everything sat until recently when a decision was finally made to clean the place up. I was going to have a swap meet barn sale whatever you call it, but with this pandemic we're dealing with, I'm not sure when we'll be able to do that. So I thought I'd share some pictures with you just for fun. Here they go if I can get them to attach! I'm doing this from my phone instead of with my PC in my office. Here goes let's see what I can do. Well it looks like my photo files are too large! So you only get one at a time. Here's the first one.
  12. Napa Ca. No problem sharing where. I WANT this stuff to go to folks that can use it! I'll try posting more photos from my phone.

  14. Just found this tucked in with some old family photos. I know my grandfather had speedsters and race cars, not sure about this photo at all. When my dad was a teenager, he built race cars for my grandfather. There is one more photo somewhere of grandpa in another speedster.
  15. Well, I still have the Cadillac. Have had a few contacts that claimed to be buyers but when I asked for name, where they were living and phone number, they vanished into the twilight zone. I still have one that flew in from the east coast, looked a the car, went for a ride (I drove) and told me he wants it as soon as he has his money in place. Meanwhile, the car is For Sale to the first acceptable offer. No deposits, no hold until you fill your bank account, no trades. Here is a new video:
