Re: Flathead V8 and Trans Repair/ Rebuild Shop Recommendations Please

I appreciate the endorsement. Unfortunately he's several hours away and that may be the problem, however still a possibility.

Thanks, Andy

Re: stromberg 97 filter

I also found that the K&N KA-1203 fits my air cleaners. They are 4" diameter x 2" high.
Good Luck.

Re: Gas fume help needed...

I just added 2 photos of the seepage to my photo album. Look closely and you can see the discoloration after one short ride. I carb cleaned them before I fired up.
