Re: Starter heat soak

On my 50 with 8ba the header sits about 3/4 inch from starter so not even much room for heat shield but will fab one. Seems like the stock manifold wasn't that close. May go back to stock set up....

Re: White / gray smoke coming from passenger side 292

Seems to me that white smoke always meant water not oil burning. Blown head gasket or cracked head will show up as white smoke.
Just for what its worth.

Re: brake m cyl

Thks,
It is a treadle vac and the m cyl reservoir mounts crosswise to the cyl/booster.
Weird looking devil.

Re: duals/neutral saf switch

Thks for the comeback. My NS switch sits between the column and exhaust manifold so is a problem. Maybe Merc and Ford are diff. Looks like a complicated fabrication job
coming up.

Exclamation duals/neutral saf switch

Putting dual exhausts on 54 merc and need to move the neutral safety switch up to clear the stock dual exhaust manifold. Must have been a stock bracket for it but can't find one.
