Re: 6x4

Yikes! There is no guard covering the propeller. Peole are so stupid these days that would raise the total IQ of the country.

Re: Don't ask me how

You could have a set of .125 over pistons machined down to suit, take the block out to .125 over or sleeve it back. You have plenty of optoins. I think you were probably lucky it failed now and not...

Re: Tune up parts

Why do you carry a spare distributor and carby? What could possibly go so wrong that you need to replace the body of those???? At the most (and I do tours solo of thousands of miles), I carry a set...

Re: Cable shifter

About 12 months ago, I had the opportunity to buy a cable shift that someone else didn't want. I grabbed it and loved it so much I decided to get another. I too didn't like the extra lever on the...

Re: Mike wings aka "wingski"

I exchanged many PMs and emails with Wingski and thought he and his wife were nice people. His passing seems to have come rather suddenly and I wish the best for his family. I'm sure he will be...

Re: 6x4

Access to the rear seat could be a challenge!
6X4 is fine - how about 2X1. Those Russians sure did some strange stuff. Not Model A but worth a read:...

Re: Oiling springs

No, any old oil lubricates better than rust. Some people, myself included have used all sorts of fancy stuff but they all do the same thing.
