Re: What the H??? My new bakelite upper distributor body/shell is misaligned??

I say call the vendor you got it from and explain the sutuation to them.

Then get one fro either Bert's, Snyders or Brattons and hopefully you will be down the road in no time.

Re: Passing of Dear Friend Jim Langley

I knew Jim through the 100's of emails that we had shared over the years. Jim helped me gather information about the Columbus Assembly Plant and then some.

He was a true friend.

Rest In Peace...
