The instruction sheet says: ' High...

Re: Oil pump Old or new Melling

I plan on making a device out of PVC pipe to pressure test my new Melling pump before I install it.

Re: 1950 F1 Wipers

I'm not sure of a '50, but should be the same as a '52. I can take a photo of my spare motor if it will help.
