Re: Is this a Model B fuel pump?

The mounting holes are wrong for a B. It actually looks like it could fit a SBC!

Re: 12V vs 6V crab distributor

Re: capillary temp gauge available or modification??

I remember a fix that was in V8 Times decades ago. Get a new mechanical gage. You freeze the bulb so the line is not going to leak vapor/fluid. Get a sleeve and solder the new line to the old gage.

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

I have had them made as well. The problem I was worried about was the scarf at the end of the eye where it wraps around to form a complete eye. I guess they could bend that flat and then get it to...
