Re: 12 volt headlight options

Despite all the negativity toward LED headlights, quite a few guys in our club have used various types of LED lights (including me). In every instance, they are very pleased with the results.

Re: Light Switch Body

Cheap insurance is to have a handful of those pesky c-clips. If you have extras, you will probably never need them, but if you don't have extras, that is a sure sign that you will loose it and never...

Re: Electronic Flasher

First off - I'm running 12 volts with an alternator.

Re: What do I need to do to get a reliable engine?

Ron Kelley is in Royce City. I have one of his engines in my pickup. I have no qualms about taking off on a trip of a thousand miles or more.

Re: Fuel shut off

Not your "original" set-up, but I bought the ball valve from Amazon. (It also has an electric shut-off just downhill from the filter.)

Re: Frame serial number to obtain a title?

Re: Model B crank in Model A

To use a B crank in a Model A engine, the journals have to be ground down to Model A specs. That is actually a good way to use a B crank that is worn beyond specs. At least one engine in our club has...

Re: ROTELLA 15W 40 Oil

I use Rotella 15w40 in my engine. In Alaska's colder climate I don't think the 15 is too thin as it would be in a much warmer Alabama.
