Re: Single stage or base/clear

Yes white can be a bugger to match. The one thing going for you is that the top is a separate part. Is there a gasket between the top and the body that shows?

Re: Single stage or base/clear

My pickup is single stage urethane that I painted in my driveway. Looks great after 19 years and it was easy to work with. Get a good respirator if you do it yourself.

Maybe add a vintage compass that would cover the extra holes.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

But you have to remember that with the current exchange rate $300 US dollars is equal to about $400 Canadian dollars. That Fenton would be about $245 US.

Re: Stromberg S-jet

Been running mine since the new 97's came out. One stuck open once and they replaced the plastic floats with brass ones and I never had a problem again. I only run non oxygenated gas, no alcohol.

Re: Starter wrap

I think the starter insulation wrap is used on Chevys that have the solenoid on the starter motor. I believe its the solenoid that doesn't want to work when it gets hot not the starter motor.

Re: Diaphragm clutch noise?

Planned on doing that but its a custom job that I machined so it will take a little more work. It uses the stock Ford carrier and the smaller throwout bearing that the diaphragm PP needs.
