I just pulled the original pump gears from the degreaser bath, cleaned them up and inspected them. They are clearly machined, as the marks are very visible on both ends of each gear. There is also...

Re: repro exhaust manifold

I believe most of the suppliers we mention in this forum sell sintered gears. I’m thinking seriously about just re-using the original gears.

Re: Brakes quiz!! ID the mistery system.

I had that system on my Model A over 40 years ago (have changed back to stock now). It did work quite well. I believe either Warshawsky or Ricks sold it.

Re: 6V versus 12V (stupid ques. I'm a newbie)

Iíve had my Model A since I was 15 - and that was over 50 years ago - and I have no plans to change to 12 volts. With LED bulbs, absolutely no need to today.

Re: Horn/headlight switch issue

I put some shrink tubing around the spring contact in the light switch and plan a test drive this afternoon to see if the problem still exists.
