Re: Valve stems

Bert's sells them the last time I heard.

For the record .....

Screwing a std thread bolt into this hole will destroy the tapered pipe thread inside the casting as installed by Ford.

Re: Fun Projects Cut-out Question

Also with Fun Projects regulator:

1. Do not change polarity when installing battery.

2. Do not use 12 volts to jump start a 6 volt car.

Either one will fry most regulators.
