Re: Amount of oil remaining in the engine

Hey Synchro,

Blame it on the British. Since Australia is still part of ďEmpireĒ, I would think you would have kept the weird British System. Wish the U.S. had gone to the Metric System. They teach...

Re: Pressurize a cooling system

If you just don’t want fluid leaking out on your driveway you can’t put an overflow tank on the radiator. There was a recent thread a week or two ago discussing an overflow tank.

Re: Ford Model A Coolant Overflow Tank

ďNot that there anything wrong with thatĒ. Not any more than an alternator, an electronic distributor, a downdraft carb, modern tube shocks, etc.

Re: pinto engine on model A

There was a Lotus/Cortina produced in the UK. Unless I am mistaken, it had a Climax head and probably a cam.

Re: bmw woes

Could be the electric water and/or the thermostat gave out. The electric water pump is known to fail around 100k miles. Too much plastic is used throughout the BMW engine to reduce weight.
