  • Plucks website sticky poll

    looking to the members on your opinion of the website / supplier list..
    did you find it beneficial?
    keep in mind it needs to be updated from its current version.. there are many broken invalid links...

    comments also appreciated

    I/m not one to have 400 sticky's at the top of the forum so the few that will be there need to count.

    would you like to see it as a sticky, subforum, a new category, other?......I have some ideas but I am always open for input as well,,,we all share this house....

    how you voted is not made public !!!!
    i find the info useful & would like to see it on the VFF
    i do not think the info is useful and should not be posted
    i am 50/50 on having the info posted

    The poll is expired.

    One other category Mitch. If it ain't broke...........

      I don't know all the sources that are out there and often refer to the list when helping others find something nearby them. I also like that these are "tried and true" referrals and not someone that has a business and want to advertise.

        Mitch a sticky broken down by engine rebuilding, brakes, wiring,full restorations seems like that could be good for people to find, I like your closed tech section how to adjust brakes by purdy or how to time the a properly. just my thoughts too many stickys= clutter unless they are useful and always apply.

          Tom Endy's info or how to get to it may help others, I myself have his info saved

            Definitely as a sub-forum. I agree too many sticky's become clutter.
            The only sticky at the top of a particular forum should be
            the moderator's explicit instructions for that forum.
            Mechanical engineering 101: If you put an adjustment knob, screw, bolt, or tolerance specs on something, some people will immediately fiddle with it. If you mark it DO NOT TOUCH everyone will mess with it.

              another thing about its current situation is it looks like a junkyard with all the follow up posts... I am leaning heavily to making it its own sub forum (many have suggested that also) that Pluck will have the permissions to edit / make changes at any time he wants. no follow up posts would be permitted. If someone has a new prospect to be added or something to be deleted, they could submit that through a PM to Pluck directly. he could then check it out for relevancy etc....
              Pluck would be in total charge of this if he wants to take it on. we have not really discussed this in full yet, but after he reads this I guess its been discussed.. LOL
              I have enough going on right now and I see no let up, so I personally am not interested in managing it.

                    Newly found forum help tips
                    by Mitch
                    since many of us are getting used to a new STYLE format, i think it might be a good idea to post newly found navigation tips to this main area for quick viewing. I will also be copying these threads to the support forum sticky where many are already posted...
                    if anyone notices something to share with the group that has not been posted feel free to start a new thread on it. Take a look at the

                    As much as I personally don't care for them as a vendor, they do have good information.

                    Is there any interest in a group Excel Spreadsheet project?
                    by vonheine
                    I am interested in finding members that would participate in building an Excel spreadsheet version of the Ford: Parts Price List V-8 and 4 Cylinder Cars 1928 to 1932. Effective December 20, 1932

                    This book in an Excel format would allow a restorer to efficiently make sub-assembly lists for building, check and confirm part numbers, make lists of parts that they want to find, or sell etc....

                    Model TT Build
                    by Tom Hicks
                    I am not a mechanic and I have only been messing with T's for a few years, so working on a T is mostly a learning experience for me and it takes me a lot longer to do something both for that reason and limited health. I am building a TT and I think this forum would be a good place to show my progress, which will be slow, and get advice.

                    I will be trying to get a little something done...

                    Spare Engine
                    by jordanka16
                    I have a spare engine for my car that I think is good. This winter I plan to tear it down and see. I want to measure and make note of every part so I know what is good, how good it is, and what is bad and needs replaced. I haven't looked yet but I'm sure I can find all the specs and tolerances of the various parts, I might already have that in one of my books somewhere.

                    What I want to...
