Re: clean that carb

If you found no dirt the problem could have been caused by a bad gasket.

Re: Hershey chatter

When did they start allowing gas powered scooters, minibikes, or bicycles? Last time I read the rules none of them were allowed. DOGS TOO.

Re: Model B Coil Wiring

And just to confuse things more, on a generator system electricity always travels from ground to positive.

Re: Help removing a stripped head bolt

Yes, use a Dremel with a cutting wheel and cut slices from front and back, not the sides. The nut will look like a D after you cut the first side off just close to the threads. Then cut the other...

Re: Tire tubes and age.

Apparently you guys haven't purchased any of the junk inner tubes that are being sold. They blow up putting air in them before you even put them back on the car. A friend had aired one up, had it...

Re: Broken Manifold Bolt

Make a drill fixture with a flat plate about 3/4 or 1 inch thick. Use a gasket as a pattern to put in two other holes to hold it in place. This will keep your hand drill square so you don't drill at...

You don't need ZDDP so it wouldn't matter.

Re: Scranton PA area VIN verification

Any inspection mechanic can verify it, and state police. But all I've ever had to do was take a tracing to go to PennDOT.

Re: Charging a dead battery

Didn't he say he charged it on 12 instead of 6 volts for several hours? I'd bet the battery is trashed and lucky it didn't blow it's guts. Check the points too, if you left the key on until it killed...

Re: Coil + or -

If you hook it up backwards the spark will be jumping from the bent electrode on the threaded part of the spark plug to the center electrode. Think about that.

Re: Coil + or -

If it's Bosch it was probably stolen from a VW. And like Railcarmover says 15 goes to the points. With a generator electricity moves from + to - to get to ground which the points are just that.

Re: think i got f@#$ed
