I was surfing the internet when I came across Hotrodders Bulletin Board. I own a 69 Mach1 Mustang (428CJ) and a 40 Ford streetrod. My current 40 Ford projects include a new steering rack, bearing replacement for the front end, powder coating a few items and new front tires. Not a big deal.

The Mustang unfortunately had a connecting rod come off the crankshaft and went thru the side of the block, approximately a month ago and I wasn't even racing her!! That project will require me to remove the engine, gut it and see just how bad it is. I've been told that theres a slim chance the block can be welded. We'll see.

I'm attempting to locate a business or person willing to teach upholstery work. If theres ANYONE familiar with this opportunity located in or around North West Indiana, please let me know.

Have you checked with your local vo-tech school or community college? Sometimes they offer night or weekend short courses for things like welding, upholstery etc.

Also, I'd think twice before welding that block. For peace of mind, I would think investing in another block would be the way to go. I don't have any direct experience with a welded block but I do have some experience with rods and miscellaneous shrapnel exiting the block where it's not supposed to exit. And I don't think I'd trust the integrity of any block once it's had a hole shot through it. JMHO.

And welcome to HR.Com. Hope you stick around for a while.

Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.
