I am catching up on delayed projects,  Near 60° today, 4/2/20. So the Modern Iron gets a new Knuckle, hub and bearing assembly.  Being in the rust belt, these assemblies make a lot of sense and the price is very attractive.  I've had a lot more than one knuckle crack while trying to press out the bearing. Or the hub is so galled it isn't useable. Ken Strysick

Salt Creek'rs What are you up to during the Illinois Stay-in-place Order? 

Let's post some picture here.  Thanks Ken Strysick

From Ilene Schauer, The 2018 Salt Creek A's Holiday Pizza Party.   Yum…..Oh yeah and great company too!

Ilene Schauer is busy reminiscing during the Stay in Place order.  She visited the Dust's garage while 3 generations were working together.  Ron, Ken and Nate. Per Ken, Ilene took these when she visited us back on a cold day in January 2017 as we helped Nate put the axles, drivetrain, and engine back on the re-riveted frame and got it ready to drop the body back on.  She also sent some pictures of her Model T driving lesson with Don Carter
