Re: Just won't fire up.

Had a simular problem once, turned out to be bad plug wires. Spark was weak, would not fire gasoline, but would fire on starting fluid. I also have had a bad "new coil" out of the box.

Re: Mart's update: 2021 No4. 32 Sedan Project Pt. 27. Taking care of the small stuff!

Can we say that at Mart's Garage, "progress is a most important product" ? I'd say yes.
Thanks Mart, Cheers....

Kube, i've read enough of your stuff here & on V8 Times to know you rank right up there too. My last 8BA was inspired a lot by Barners with experience.

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

Knew a guy with a twin to that engine, including that intake setup. It was in a 50 coupe.
He said it was the best running 8BA he ever owned. Wish you well with it.

Re: head Recommendation

Probably true Denny....but it never ran hot even last summer in the heat. Heads shouldn't matter unless they are flawed, should they ?
