Re: Snyder’s 6:1 head

I also use the nurex tool for timing the 6.1 head and use normal 4.2 timing.

I am using the copper head gasket.

Re: Snyder’s 6:1 head

Before you installed it did you have it checked for being straight? You should.

Re: So here's my question......

I bought a 2 blade aluminum fan from Snyders for my 31 roadster and it was a high quality item.

I have no clue where it was made, nor do I care. Hi quality is high quality.

Tire changers, do you use the DIY units?

I need to change the 19" tires on my 31. I am not sure if I trust the locals to do it without scratches.

Has anyone used this from HF? Or would I just be better to take it to a garage?
