Sadly, many won't be eating a Christmas Ham in their homes this year in the Wine country.  :(

this is how messed up I am, the first image that came into my mind was a stage full of bad actors doing A Christmas Carol on fire.

Hmm, a Number Thirteen on a "Friday". Make it a Great day for your world. The media caves to superstition, don't they? ;)

Fear not the nut that won't move, rather the Rust that preys on the rare parts of metal :o

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the death of Che Guevara. Wonder how many Cubans remember who he was. Bet Castro does.

Kim,
 No E-mail in any part of the UK site. Once upon a time there was a Quaife USA distributor, Unable to find at this time. I'm sending you this attachment to use for a suitability exercise with a Stock Merkur  T-9 . I may have access to a used one thru a close friend that converted his Merkur to a T-5 that was really boosted in HP ( Later the car was rear ended and totaled) . In the meantime, I've left my email with Quaife UK to further this endeavor.. I'm intrigued with a T-9 and would like to price out a Iron case t-9 for my racer.  :)

Thanks for the info. I did find an e-mail address on the site, sent an e-mail, but nobody answered it.

If you are in the UK, could you call them for me, and see if they do orders shipped to the US? If not, I won't spend any more time on inquires.

Vacation!!!!! Not much to report. This weekend I pulled the top of the carburetor off to find rust in the bowl. Since I got the carb off my 77 I donít know for sure if it was from this or that car. I did however find the nozzle was clogged. So that explains a lot of my issues. Got the nozzle soaking to clean it up and bought a can of carburetor cleaner. I will clean out the bowl, and see if I can get the original carburetor functioning again. New fuel filter as well. Additionally the hoses from the power steering cooler sprung a leak so I will be replacing them as well.

What hath the week wrought at this day of the Hump? Progress report?  The boys in the Bunkhouse want to know ;)

Got it Joe! Thanks. It looks like some of the T9 parts would fit a 4 speed tranie too. I keep looking on the Merkur site but most of the T9's are gone and replaced by a T5 long ago.

Dick , Sent you an email with PDF file for the Mag shown here..

Help. All I get on the classic ford mag site is blank pages.

For a sort of ultimate guide on T-9's:

As far as I know BGH are still in business, see there website and pricelist:

You can't import a cast iron case into California. They weigh too much and would eat precious fuel resources. And as we all know Jerky Clown does like anything that might pollute the (smoke filled by massive fires) air.  ;D
Well, the Crown prince of Bovine logic will just have to eat Tofu..  ;D  I may have to default to an aluminum case( to save on Shipping) and we all know that european aluminum is made from old WW2 warbirds :o.  Helping the manufacturers of the Crown doesn't bother me, ( I spend a ton on Teutonic pieces for the Hare). My Pinto would spin its mainshafts happily on Needle bearings and the ratio choices would have me in hillclimb nirvana, even in a non sequential "H" pattern.

 Pintosopher, a known extraction tool to clean up the "stables" , Honey wagon awaits filling ;D
