1950 Radiator Options

Instead of repairing my stock radiator, are the benefits of a 4-core (looking at a US Radiator from Shoebox Central) worth the extra money? I'm not so much concerned with the price as I am with the...

1950 Radiator Question

Not sure if I'm missing something but does the radiator for a 1950 need to have the air purged to fill completely?

Re: Optima 6V Battery Mounting Options

I saw another post that said you should have a hole in the case to let the Optima breathe...has anyone had an issue with that?

Re: Optima 6V Battery Mounting Options

Those are interesting options thanks...does the battery move around in the case or is it mounted within the case?
