Re: Brakes quiz!! ID the mistery system.

These "brake floaters" were available from JC Whitney and Warshawsky in in 1960's. I installed a set on my grandfather's coupe (now my coupe.) They didn't help one bit with worn out brakes! Removed...

Re: Transmission dipstick kit

The transmission dip stick makes the level easy to check, but not so easy to correct. I had to try several funnels to get the right shape/size to use to fit through the floor board and to fill...

Re: Any visual difference between cut out and electronic regulator?

My units from Fun Projects have a sticker on the bottom side. Take the "cutout" off the generator and see if it is marked or stickered on the bottom.

Re: 6V to 12V conversion

"While European cars were 12 volt from very early . . .."

My 1965 Volkswagen was 6 volts. I think the 1966 was still 6 volts, although I did not own a 1966, so I am not certain.

Re: EBAY 1929 Oval Window Coupe

I don't think it's a sport coupe. The photo of the interior side of the oval window seems to show the correct metal straps for the business coupe, not the sport coupe. Maybe someone more familiar...
