I do have some pics around here somewhere.

Original motor, trans, heads. I had to rebuild the motor (piston pin) and the damn machine shop decked the block when I specifically told him not to. Thankfully, its a Norwood car and the stamp on the casting was legible.

Chemdip will also discolor (take the yellow out) if left in the bath too long....  Let us know your process and results using lacquer thinner; I'd imagine the lacquer thinnner 'bath' would need to be sealed up, other the thinner will evaporate out quickly...

Indiana BMV title page says

The certificate of title must be applied for within 45 days after the vehicle is purchased or otherwise acquired. If the certificate of title is applied for after the 45 days have passed, an administrative penalty will be charged.

If you are buying a vehicle, ensure that the seller has completed in their entirety both the seller and purchaser sections on the certificate of title before visiting a license branch to apply for a new certificate of title. The seller should remove the license plate from the vehicle at the time of the transaction. The purchaser is responsible for obtaining a new certificate of title, registration, and license plate.

So I would assume if he requests a title from them as required by law - and as I read it he should have done so back in the day up to 45 days after he purchased it,  regardless of it being used for racing only as the vehicle is not considered an exempt vehicle due to it being a vin issued vehicle, not a custom specialized piece of machinery, or an off road vehicle by their definitions. They will issue an updated title in his name. He may need to present his bill of sale and the death certificate, but that is not your problem or issue. It is his if he ever intends to sell the vehicle. In any event he should call the BMV to get the particulars in his case.

Once he has legal title to the vehicle in his name he can then sign the title as seller and you can take legal ownership paying the associated fees. Looks very straight forward and as already said they will most likely not give a hoot as long as he is paying the title fees and administration fines for being over 45 days. Money talks.

Well, I've de-railed my own thread here, so let's put it back on track!

I spoke with Troy a few days ago and he said he's now using lacquer thinner to clean parts. You just have to be VERY careful with it. Use it outside, not in direct sunlight, etc... but it seems to work good. He said that if you leave parts in it too long, it will discolor them, so you have to keep an eye on it, but other than that, it works just fine.

I'm going to give that a try so I'll report back after this weekend.

Thanks for pointing that out Joe.  That very well could be the difference in prices.  Makes me think I should probably go with the second Hurst link for not much more money.

...but you can't buy it if you live in CA or NJ

Exactly! you can't get ANYTHING that works here in CA because of the stupid laws. Man how I HATE this state. Unfortunately, I don't have the resources to leave, (too many obligations and roots), but if I could, I'd be outta here faster than you could imagine. And I'm not alone. Because of the high taxes, businesses are vacating CA at an alarming rate. Unless things change, and I mean DRASTICALLY, it wouldn't surprise me to see NO businesses in CA within the next 10 years. And it's not just businesses either. People are deserting this sinking ship so fast it's scary. California has shot itself in the foot too many times and people are sick of this place.

But.. CA brings it on itself, by continuing to elect idiot liberal politicians....   :(   (so much so that it impacts the remainder of the country as well)...
