Re: Snyder 5.5 head

Re: Are repo engine pans identical to original?

I agree. They seem to 'finish off' the engine compartment.

Re: Oil Breather tube 20 inch flex tube

Do you need to cut a hole in the engine pan when using the Fumaze? Or remove the engine pan?? If so I would rather use the flex tube.

Re: Car Will Not Start--No Apparent Spark

Yeah, happens a lot. A person asks a question but does not follow or understand the advice. Then the thread turns into a lesson in frustration for every one.
