Hi Henry,

I have had good luck with all the vendors that service the hobby.
I purposefully buy from multiple sources because I want to help ensure 
that they all stay in business, including my local FLAPS.  I usually 
check to see who has the best price including shipping on the complete 
set of things I need at a given time, and order from them.  Sometimes I 
re-arrange my work plan to fit what's on sale.

Here's a short list of  suppliers I've had good results from --
Patricks Antique Cars - Engine parts, manufacturer of Fenton intake and 
Brothers Trucks,
Classic Parts of America,
Jim Carter,

BTW, I have a 4-core radiator with trans cooler for the AD trucks if 
you're gong to run a v-8.
I bought it and discovered it's too thick to work with an inline without 
some core support mods.
