I'm glad that you could use it Ed. It was just collecting dust and I would probalbly have lost it in the move :D
Great to see it coming together and it looks like you will be running soon!

Have you been getting any of these warm temps yet? (forecast 75 today here) ;D

That's great FATnLOW! Make sure you get a door, or two on there before you take it for a shake-down....or at least strap yourself in!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Pulled fenders and tires off to make it easier to bleed front brakes....Wilwood 4 piston calipers what a pain...hands gets tired from vacuum gauge pumping...funny how you put parts/ items on then later take them off and put them back on again......had to remake brake switch bracket made it more adjustable..

Drove  the '33.  out of the garage....exhaust system tomorrow can't make my mind up flowmasters or glass packs. Might get muffler man see what he recommends...don't want that roaring noise in the cab area....
