Re: Question on flathead oil canister filter housing

Did a little researching and some reading, defies logic but makes sense. The small hole will reduce flow and pressure in the canister when installed on inlet side, interesting.

Re: Question on flathead oil canister filter housing

If the center tube in the filter canister that goes thru the middle of the filter and is connected to the return line has this 1/16th hole, is that not the essential flow restrictor? Leaving the only...

Re: Correct gauge wire

I'm going away from the cloth wire to plastic coated, originality is not huge on the list.... would you recommended adding a fuse for the heck of it or leave it out?

Re: Correct gauge wire

Should I be adding a fuse to this wire? It goes from starter solenoid, looped thru ammeter and to starter switch. Any accessory lights I have run direct from the battery thru a fuse and a relay.

Re: chrome looking spray paint

Rustoleum rattle can chrome just looks like silver paint. Don't use if wanting a comparable chrome like finish.

Re: Drive shaft lock pin

Does your C&G pins have a hollow tip? The ones I used did. I did not trim at all, just a few wacks with the hammer(see post #39). If using NOS, do as deuce_roadster suggested.
