Re: Sluggish starter

Agree with Gary, had same issues, more than a couple of normal starts and battery was dead. Not sure exactly how old battery was. Changed to 6 volt Optima. No more issues.

Re: Distributor won't drop in fully...

Had to gently tap mine in after the index pin hit the hole in the head. Did the same thing the last time I had it out and it was no problem removing it this time when I replaced head gasket. GENTLY

rear axle bearing lube

Do not want to over or under grease rear bearing. The bearings are new and hand packed 2000 miles ago. Would like some thoughts on this.

Re: 30 Coupe Cooling question

I agree with syncrho909.My 30 coupe runs 160 with stat. Hardly ever add liquid. Keep level just above fins, may need a flashlight to look at an angle in the rad to see level just over tubes.

Re: Front wheel bearing grease caps?

Re: Need Info on Rear Bumper Flag Mount

Those are for small flags, probably have to rig your own. If you have a patriot guard unit around you they put big flags on their motorcycles for veteran funerals. They may have a good mount.

Re: Finding Correct Size Battery

Check suppliers for a hold down bracket besides these two little holders. The top will secure the group one battery, most A suppliers have them, attaches to existing battery tray.
