Re: FS 17-25 Roadster/Touring Aprons

Just to be certain... The aprons are the ones that attach to the running boards .... Not the engine compartment splash pans, correct? I am looking for the engine compartment ones.

Re: Head gaskets

Got a call last week, from both Lang's and Snyder's. Lang's called first, so took it. I re-used my old one when I replaced the head, and did a valve job, as they had been on back order for 3 or more months. I'm comfy, now, having a new one as a spare!

Do you have the ID oof the inlet?
How does the exhaust pipe stay in the muffler? Just a jam fit?

Lastly, how much would shipping be to 49706 (Alanson, Mi)?

From the looks of the bolt heads, your bolts may be moving a bit. Are they all tight? I.e. the nits on the inside? That can make a world of difference, and if loose, can really accelerate damage to the spokes. I didn't see where you're from.... If your car would be 'down' in the winter, where sendin...

For most of these, the lever is aligned with the direction of flow in the line, for 'on'. Flip it 90 degrees, so now it points across the flow, for 'off'.

Hmmm... That would make sense... But I don't recall the lower hole in the dogear for the horizontal bolt to go through. That would certainly make getting the engine in easier! Although getting the nut in the inside is another matter!

I'll have to check for the holes!

Re: head bolts

Hi, Jeff.. I might take you up on the bottom tap! I had a few when I was doing pen turning, but gave them away with a small wood lathe I sold. Weren't this size, anyway. ☺️ Are original bolts grade 5-ish? I wouldn't think they would be stretching if grade 8.... But maybe tougher than the block. Dennis
