    Hello, I'll be the second person to post on the Early V8 Page. I see some familiar members here. How about some information on this site? When and how was it founded?

    I think you'll end up seeing a lot of familiar faces show up, some of them from the past.
    I personally started up the site to give the community another option for quality information.

        Good morning from Kenyon Minnesota - or - Gold Canyon Arizona (depending on the season).
        Another new guy here. I have a 1933 Ford Tudor that I am working on to create a nice "original look" street rod for my wife and I. As a fabricator and mechanic, I do a fair bit of work on others cars and a significant amount of Carburetor work.

        Tried to upload pics and it says they're too big. Since Photobucket took a crap on the online world, I haven't yet found a suitable replacement.
        Here's a couple of old pics but the car has changed a bit since then.

          Very nice!

          If possible just resize your pics to 2050 and load them to the server. I'm trying to get way from off site hosting, because once one does it the others will eventually follow. That screwed so many forums up big time
          I use CropSize on my IOS items that works great but its cost 4.00.. I can resize 50 pics at once
          On windows i use the picture editor

        Sweet ride ya got there Randy!!

        Hard to find unaltered cars like that.
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          Thanks fellas...
          I'll check into Cropsize. My only hesitation is that if I want to retain full resolution pics on my device as well as the downsized ones - it eats up a lot of space. Hopefully there is an automatic resizing widget that becomes available for the forum software that will automatically resize while uploading. Of course that comes at a cost of both bandwidth and server CPU cycles too..

            When i cropsize it adds another pic next to the original in the photo album.
            I delete them afterwards

            i do the manual resizing where it asks to punch it in.. 2050X1531
            hope this helps

          Thanks Mitch - that helps! It's $5 now but I've spent more on a skunky beer so why not?

          Wow Mitch - Where did you find those?
          I've not seen a Grove or W1 in a lot of years. Most the carbs I get are from 60's through 80's (Rochesters, Carters, Autolites, Holleys and Webers)... Most of the early (30-40-50's) Dodge, Ford and Chevy carbs that people bring me are pretty well shot from sitting out in the elements - rust and corrosion. But I try and sometimes get lucky. Since I live out in the country, I see some older tractor carbs - those are not generally worn out but gummed up - some are water poisoned.
          Having had to make a new needle valve on my lathe I can appreciate the value of finely machined parts. You should consider just sitting on those parts unless they are just in your way..

                  Hey, isn't there an IN-N-Out right on I-10 in Gilbert? I think I know where that is and been there.

              • #17
                DaWizard. There are three IN-n-OUT burgers places in Gilbert. One is on Stapley a block or two south of US 60. Another is at the San Tan Mall complex, still another out east just off US 60 on Ironwood Rd. or that area.

                          Figured I would say hello to the panel here. I'm new to the forum, obviously, and proud owner of my late grandfathers 36 Ford. I love cars, been in and around them all my life, and I don't have the slightest clue whats going on in this 36 (haha) but i'm sure i'll learn quick. My grandfather restored a number of vehicles over his lifetime, and became some what of an obsession of his. Looking at his 36, the books he had on them, makes me wish I had found more time to spend with him and learn about this great vehicle. Hopefully this young blood can learn a thing or two from this forum. Thanks for the add, the info, and future conversations. ~ Cheers!

                              I think I want a Reputation.

                              While I am on the subject of site goodies, what is the "Tag" and what will it do, or should I just experiment?
