  1. Butyl Tires

    Butch, were Bucrons the tires with Butyl rubber tread? If so, I put a pair on the rear of the '61 Pontiac Ventura, 389 TriPower and 4-speed for supposed better traction. The treads just slobbered...
  2. Ford Passenger Car Hydraulic Brakes

    Ford passenger cars changed from rod operated to cable operated mechanical brakes for the 1937 and 1938 model years. It was not until the 1939 model year that Ole Henry changed to Lockheed...

    Thanks for the kind words! Sadly I don't think any pics of the '36 Ford have survived. We have a ton of old photos that have not been sorted or cataloged for many years. I'll see if I can find...
  4. Juice Brakes

    This was a faily common conversion back in the day. The '36 Ford Tudor I bought in 1952 was so equipped along with a '48 Merc flathead and column shift tranny. Not great brakes by today's standards,...

    Acurite

    I bought an Acurite temperature and humidity unit a couple of years ago. The temperature and humidity readings from the remote were wildly inaccurate. After several attempts to get warranty...

    Butch: No black ice. Just 2 or 3" of the powdery white stuff! Vic
  7. Snow In Houston

    Although I never officially "lived" in Houston, I commuted to work there for many years in the 1970's and 1980's. In on Monday morning and out on Friday afternoon. I can remember at least 3 times...

    Turtle Killer

    I feed the catfish and bream in my farm pond daily with a floating fish food. The darn turtles have started swimming up and fighting the fish for food. Have to thin them out every once in a while!

    Canjar Trigger

    No question there have been better triggers developed since the Canjar for short range benchrest competition. However, I bought a used Canjar single set trigger some 30 years ago for use on a long...
  10. AR-15 Tuner

    The Lilja 204R barrel is threaded 1/2"-28 TPI like most AR-15's. I've thought about cutting the ported section off in a lathe or even pressing a sleeve on over the ports. Either way I'd be altering...
  11. Harrells AR-15 Tuner

    I built an AR-15 last Fall with a .204R 20" threaded Lilja barrel. I initially tried to find an unported tuner with the proper threads, but after a short internet search was unable to do so. I...

    Britt

    Britt often attracted a gallery of spectators when he shot trap. He was indeed a very fast shooter. A group of us were watching Britt in a shoot off one evening and a shooting buddy remarked "He...

    CZ 455 Rings

    There is a 'Sticky" on the http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/index.php website in the "Cz/Brno" section that pretty well covers the CZ rimfire scope mounting options. I ended up with Burris...
  15. BB Chevy

    Yep, know about the fuel mileage running a big Holley on a BB Chevy from personal experience! A shooting buddy, who ran a fleet of Chevy trucks for a time in the 1970's once told me, "If GM hadn't...

    I sent an email to Whidden Gunworks requesting information on the hardness of their sizing dies. An unhardened sizing die would be of...

    FL Size Die

    Whidden Gunworks says their FL size dies are a good fit for PT&G chamber reamers. I just ordered a 6X47 Lapua die from them, so we'll see. Vic

    Shortening Cases

    Although a chop saw would be much faster, I didn't have one, so not knowing a tubing cutter wouldn't work I used one to cut off several hundred cases with no problem. Just clean straight cuts with a...

    Agree 100% with goodgrouper. XBR and Varget are too fast to give the best results in the .22/250 AI. Over the years I have mostly shot H414/W760 in the .22/250 AI. Great accuracy, velocity and ease...
