Re: Need to know

Probably not enough to worry about. I'd probably try to put more miles on it and run it before throwing anything but antifreeze and water into the radiator. Jack E/NJ.

Re: Engine diaper

It's such a nice diaper. Probably nice strong rare earth magnets holding it in place too. And so neatly arranged. Seems like such a hassle removing a nice oily diaper every time to drive the car. I'd...

If you have a two brush 6v generator with a 6v voltage regulator, an early 12v regulator will sometimes do the job. 6v generators are quite capable of delivering 12v output without throwing solder if...
