Re: Extended Warranty

Re: Speedo is “jumpy”

You’re welcome. I am sure life and kids have never altered anyone’s best intentions and plans. By the way, despite attempting several of the above ‘remedies’, it still jumps.

Re: Club Thinning

I grew up the son of a Model A club member and enthusiast/parts hoarder (sorry Dad!). But being a mid-60’s baby—when it was time for a car, I wanted a Mustang. It didn’t mean I didn’t like Model...

Re: Shop lighting

I bought inexpensive 4’ LED’s from Amazon, I think it was 4 sets of 2 LEDs per package. IIRC it was about $60 or so to the door. These had grounded plugs on the ends, which was fine as that was how...

Speedo is “jumpy”

Re: How much grease in the clamshell?
