OI, your second picture, [ the one with the aluminium tappet covers], triggered a memory.
A couple of years ago a couple of sisters showed up at A&W with a '56 T-bird with aluminium tappet covers and I took quite an interest. The thick aluminium quietened the ticking of those solid lifters and adjustable rockers set a 19 thou, so it sounded good.

Anyhow, today I went sideways a wee bit on the Dodge Brothers. I took the cross steer draglink off to see what I've got and what I needed to mount a rack and pinion cross steer set up. I haven't really got a plan yet. The draglink was really, really worn out. I did this today so I can order in the parts that I dream up and hopefully they'll get here about the time I'll need them.

I have always loved the bird on those covers.
You won't be disappointing in the rack.
I used one from a Dodge Omni and it fit well. People don't even notice it's on there.

OI, I have some chrome tin Y-block covers. They have a decal glued on them. I think the decal is the word Thunderbird on a background of the 'bird'.
Today it's mid March and supposed to be getting ready for spring. It was -35C* or -30F* this morning,--- Torchie, what's with that, eh. It's bright and sunny outside, though.

Today I decided to try to rebuild the stock draglink, so I can modify it to fit between the cross-steer rack and pinion and the steering arm. I think it'll work. Now to find a way to make 11/16", fine, lefthand threads about 18" from the rebuilt end, on that draglink.

Internal threads? External threads? Draw me a better picture, Mac. I can't imagine what you're doing.
