Looks like the weather will be nice this coming Saturday the 4th of March. In the 40's and partly sunny. For all those that plan to be at Mora on Sat maybe you could post here so I have some idea on how big of a table I should have them set up. Hoping to see as many as possible. Would like to see this go over big. Steve.

Sounds like a nice event Steve. I wont be attending however, as I have too many things to do on a '63 Daytona hardtop as I hope to have it ready for South Bend in May.
By the way, is your engine out of the machine shop yet?

No!!!! It had best be this next week or I'am going to raise hell. Got the rear axle housing stripped down today to check it all out. Everything looks good but a small ? on the pinion bearings. Going to have my brother look at them Tues. as he's done more than I have. If I need to rockauto has them with the cups for about $55.00 . If he thinks they are at all bad I will just put in new. Like to have it all rebuilt and painted by next week.

I've got my block and heads at the Auto Value in Little Falls. The machinist said the block will be bored this coming week. Fingers crossed that all goes well.

Brent Had hoped you would be there. You take some real great photo's I had hoped could be posted here and on the Sdc news letter. I'am terrible at it. Just a reminder for everyone to turn out for this first monthly event and bring some friends as this is not limited to Studebaker drivers. Lets make this a success. Steve.

This blog is a bit old but FYI I try to avoid Chinese bearings whenever possible.
