Re: Snyder's taller seat springs

I had this same conversation with Snyder’s some time back. As I recall they said that it was 2 inches shorter on the seat bottom and therefore 2 inches longer on the backrest.

Re: Hinge pins

I have used this on my pickup with good success. I have also loaned it to friends that have used it, even on newer vehicles, and have had good success.

Re: Heater hose connection

Perfect for this application is SCAT hose, available from your local aircraft supply. Aircraft Spruce will sell short lengths in multiple sizes. It's made for hi-temp applications.

Re: Mallory distributor parts availability

All the correct answers will be all too clear once you have a nice little conversation with Jim Linder at Bubba's Ignitions.

Re: Fan Belt - Again

I would try the BX40, and if that's still too tight, move up to the BX41. Doesn't solve the multiple trips to the store, but sometimes that's the only way to make it happen.

I had mine powder coated. Just took a sample of what I wanted and they matched it up pretty well.

Re: Repair of Police (B) Head..

I have one as well. It's cracked in the thin water jacket (it froze with only water in the engine, no antifreeze.) It was that way when I got the pickup. Right now it's yard art!
