Re: polerziing generator

If you have the "Fun Projects" regulator, DO NOT polarize it with the regulator installed. It will fry itself IMMEDIATELY.

Re: Steering Wheel

Why not list it on the Ford Barn, and skip payin' Ebay a commission? I'd be a player for this wheel.

Re: Brass gas tank float for Model A

I've used one of Reen Kotas' brass floats for 4 years and 5000 miles. It is trouble free and I don't think that it rattles. If it does, I've not noticed it.

Re: New radiator installation procedure?

I tape cardboard over both sides of the radiator during the install, then remove after the job is done. (lessens the damage and the "dammit" potential.)
