Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

I like the photo Alanwoodieman posted of his dad in post #32 showing him measuring engine speed with a handheld gauge and the load scale in the background. Probably smoking a Camel or Lucky Strike.

Re: Headlight/Turn Signal Question

I saw the movie yesterday and enjoyed it very much. I loved the cars in the movie, Cobras and others, including the '63 Country Squire. Very entertaining movie.

Re: 8BA oil direction

My 1937 front bumper is 61 5/8" across the front and with about a 5 1/2" bow. The bow is a difficult to measure without taking it off the brackets, which I didn't do.
