Re: hopefully pic

What plugs do you guys run in your 8BA Offie heads?

Hard to find, for those who need them, there is currently (August 2, 2022) a posting on ebay, no affiliation, for the little clips that hold the ring on the spare tire cover for the '35-36.

Re: How to drain coolant with no mess?

Don't drain it into the gutter. Antifreeze is hard to get back out of the water and someone down stream has to drink that water.

Re: 8BA sleeve wall thickness

Re: spark plugs after going to 12V

Just make sure your new plugs are the same thread length as the old ones. Long ones don't work well in heads that require short plugs. My mechanic hopes to have time to tear my motor down this coming...

Re: Skip Haney's water pumps work- Real world traffic experience

Here is a shot of Skip's impellers.

Re: electic pump

Great to have a momentary switch, but you will like having it on all the time on hot days when it tries to vapor lock. I run mine on an As Needed basis. I do have a regulator on it.
