Contest time!!!

Postby Shane N. » Thu Oct 27, 2016 6:35 am

I took Arnold home yesterday (the '47 Cub). I stopped by the auto parts store where the son of the previous owner (deceased) of this tractor works, thought he'd like to see it. He said "it's never been in that good of shape since dad had it". He felt the steering and said that's nice. He said I see you got the gas leak stopped. Here's where the contest is. He said dad made the carb gasket out of an old ____+____. What did his dad make the carb gasket out of? It's 2 words. If you get it right I will email you a picture of a hundred dollar bill you can print out and frame and hang in your shop and tell people you won that $100 in a guessing game.

I just now saw this for the first time, so a guess is irrelevant, but using cereal boxes for gaskets was a common practice when many of us were younger. Corn flake boxes in my families case. It may be just my imagination, but it seems to me the boxes were a little thinner and harder back then.

John, we didn't have much growing up and I would have thought this would be something my dad would do but I never heard of anyone using a cereal box for a gasket. My dad doesn't throw anything away, he says it comes from growing up poor and if anyone would use a cereal box for a gasket I would think it would be him. I am trying to break that habit of not throwing anything away. Not going good so far, lol.
