Thanks for the comments! I've done tons of Gasser research on the web and I have seen your comments on this and other sites.You are knowledgeable in the hands on "been there,done that" school. Thanks for all the help/advice you have given.

Of all the parts I have collected,the Mag is my favorite. It came from a engine builder friend that has passed and he used it for dyno runs only. Looks new internally.

Yep! The magneto is very cool!! I also love the use of the truck and van I beam axles! Wish I'd narrowed one to use in my Austin! I did an I beam in my Falcon, and love the dropped I beam look!

I am having the top leafs on both springs remade due to a worn hole in one of the spring eyes. Getting re-arched with 3" of lift. I do not like the look of tall spring hangers/shackles on a Gasser. The '56 truck axle was $75 complete with springs. Got 13 1" holes drilled in axle yesterday and sand blasted clean last night. Don't know about the rest of the country, but in Ms. it is HOT and humid especially right before dark. Had pounds of sand stuck to me after sand blast operation.

"True Grit"??

Takes determination to build under adverse conditions! Sounds like you've got what it takes to keep building, regardless of the weather!

Default Rear end

Consider to move your rear back an inch to get away from the tight lower quarter........

Sandblasting is the worst.......just did a handful of parts on a 92deg day used my hoodie as always cinched around my face to keep grit out of ears,

Epic Fail! Found out after the fact it was the one I used for fall cleanup with weedwacker and had poison ivy all over it still. Resulting in rash on ear lower left face as well as entire belt line good grief

but the parts turned out great
