Re: Marvel's Mystery Oil

Marvel Mystery Oil is NOT banned in California. If it was, Amazon and other retailers would not be able to ship it here. Amazon will not let you complete an order for something that is banned here.

Re: The dreaded death wobble

What is meant by "the rubber insulator on the radius rod".

Re: A-6705-F Oil Filter Kit Installation

Re: Model A Ford Fender Debate

Could you elaborate a little please. So we know what is "wrong !!".

That is the second time (that I have seen) you have given an answer like that and it doesn't help in the discussion at all.
