I have a two small rips, one on each side of the top of my 1925 Roadster where the sides join the top that I would like to repair. The rest of the top is in good shape. I have tried Gorilla Tape but it just does not stick. Does anyone know of a better tape or other method to repair, sewing would be the best but do not want to remove it at this time.

Byron, how small ? I stitched a couple of small tears and plastered black RTV over.

Wait ! Adjusting coils ?!? HCCT seems to be the consensus.

Just set the gap and give it a spin on the Hcct and adjust the amps. If that doesn't fix it, you might need to replace the condensers. Check for double sparking. Should only be one spark.

Like Rich, I've seen lots of patches work very well. Clean the area of any oily residue and apply some Permatex Ultra Black adhesive. It'll look much better if you smooth it out using some scotch tape or celephane over it to get a slick surface while it dries.
PS.. you can also use the Ultra Black on gaskets, block water leaks or assembly of parts that you don't want to leak oil...
