Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Re: Engine Stand

They are both wrong. The angle pieces coming up to join, are for the front motor mount.
The flywheel housing is backwards. The small hole in the housing is against the block.

Re: What's that fearful racket? Mart's 41 pickup. Somethings wrong. 2021 Ep26 Pt2.
