    Helping with a project. Looking for an A-50-1 crankshaft. Crank that came with the engine was
    declared junk (wear and corrosion, pitting). -1 crankshaft is unique and not compatible with

    That's one of the many "what if" scenarios of WW2. The fate of England was pretty much decided
    by the end of 1940, before the USA even enacted the Lend Lease Act. Whatever the Germans were
    thinking in...

    From Wiki: At lunchtime on 25-Nov-1944, a German V-2 rocket fell on a packed Woolworths store

    Have some good old-fashioned fun and leave the IPad / GPS home. Bring some sectionals and a
    Rand McNally Road Atlas.

    This is to cushion the valve so it doesn’t damage the seat. Most cylinders have been
    overhauled with hardened seats eliminating the need for lead. They never needed lead in the
    first place. 73 octane...

    I find it easier to do a Google search with the domain name added in the search. Such as “ C-85

    Thanks for posting! These small Continentals were designed specifically as No Lead / 73 octane
    engines. Start adding lead or too much lead, you start having problems. Higher performance /

    Beautiful workmanship without a doubt. Nice touch with the 3pc windshield and the panel, but
    overall more of a generic restoration than 1941 authentic. I thought pre-war panels had the
    center oval ove...

    I think they work as a pencil holder also...Cigarette holder / butt snuffer, when just about
    everyone in the 1940s seemed to smoke.Not a J3 item except for those late built L-4Js and frame
