Re: Best Rear Main Seal

My use of an A pan with B rods, is that you WILL have to dimple A pan for clearance...even with use of modern nuts.

Re: Proportioner on Hydraulic Brakes?

And there's more to it. Cars need more percentage to the front (we're talking hydraulics here), because more % is needed to front due to more work being done there.
