Re: WTB

If I remember the 09 had splitdorfs or Moslers plugs in them? He has worked on this car for 40 plus years to make it as original as possible, I think he is wanting to make up a show case of 09 parts to go with it. He found some original tools thanks to Don Lang recently!

Just because an engine has been sleeved does not mean it can not leak where a repair was done.

Re: 26 Brake Cam Question

My thought are some one took the time to make them, if you piss him off from his design there will be no more. That cam is for a Parking Brake not an emergency brake, But if you are using them for an Auxillary brake I would use a different cam. I did not make these and have nothing to do with who ev...

Re: Oil Leak coming from weep hole in starter

If the oil pours out of the top petcock you have to much oil in it and it will leak there more often than when it trickles out of the petcock. Just my thoughts.
