    my father had a big mallet with a hollow copper head that had rolled up leather pressed in to both sides, not sure what it was originally designed for but was great for drifting things without marking them.
  7. Exactly with the leather mallet a sand bag a body hammer and a set of brazeing tourches you can do anything if u no what your doing with it
  8. Weld body panels fabricate lead seams and even shape metal and do body work to its a super old school way of doing things and a awesome bear bones minimalist rugged and manly set of skills to have . Thats how my daddy did all that kinda stuff an thats how he tought me . Then i went to school to be a machinist and welder. So i appreciate the old hard way of doing things and sumtime its the best way to .i still use alotbof old tools obviously and old technology and skills .
  9. If ur wanti g a longer stroke u use the stock or rephased cranke ur choice but then ise longer conecting rods for longer stroke

    Maybe I'm not fully awake this morning but wouldn't the longer stroke need shorter con rods?

    Stroke is controlled by distance from the centerline of the crank to the center of the pins for the con rods. Longer rods with a standard crank would cause the pistons to move up higher in the cylinder on the compression stroke and not go as far down the cylinder on the intake or power stroke.

    Hope someone can correct me if I'm not thinking straight this morning!
