Re: Shawnee OK Model T guy needed

Well that good to know, can get a 12V easier and cheaper then a 6V.
Truck will only be used for parades, and those are day light events.
Thanks Rotor
And it won't hurt the starter?

It's a quick and...

Re: What Does This Fit ??

Attach your pic to an email, (do not send it), once it's attached to the email copy it and save it in your pic file, it should be way smaller now.
See if that helps you.

Re: spark plug caps

Site will not let you copy image, the cap is smaller and costs $3.50 each, does not even come with the knurled nut.
I like the way these homemade ones look better

Re: 31 Slant Window Town Sedan

The windshield will not go up to vertical, it will only open enough to allow for wind flow.
I can send pics of mine, but it's snowing right and freezing in the garage.

Intake manifold getting hot

What would cause my intake manifold to get so hot it's discoloring the paint?
This is something new, it's gotten warm but never this hot before.
