  1. New? Introduce yourself here!
    Its my first post! Hey all - 45s, WLs G motors, I like all the 45 cu flatheads! My next project is this 1939 G motor that was set up as a chopper. It was sitting for at least 15 years in a back yard in Los Angeles area. I bought it a few moths ago for $2,000! Im panning on making a racer / with...

    I have searched and found some discussion on the topic, but mostly guesses, and remarks from folks that clearly have no idea what they are talking about.
