Re: Electric wiper arms

I'll agree with that. While MAC's may not be my first go to vendor I have never had a problem with them.

Re: Parking light ground wire

Re: Paint for wheels

Two of the biggest reasons why I don't like Powder Coat. Rust getting under the powder coating and then it spreads rapidly and flakes off. Also power coating fades like crazy and doesn't retain its...

Re: MARC facebook site

Jeff, is your "FB" referring to Face Book or Ford Barn? Not being a smart a$$, just trying to clarify.

Re: Black Head Gasket "Modern"

There are actually two "black" head gaskets. I use the BEST Graphtite head gasket with great success. Ensure you re-torque it after a few heat cycles.

The other is the 'Premium' head gasket that...

Re: Spark-Lever Posistion

You are correct. That is why I set my initial timing retarded so I can manually retard the timing when going up a steep grade. With the Nu-Rex/Phillips you retain your timing lever.

Re: Spark-Lever Posistion

How so. The Nu-Rex operates on a Gyro. There is no "maintenance" unless it breaks, which i doubt will happen. It is bathed in oil being splashed around the valve chamber so no need to lube.

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

Re: Spark-Lever Posistion

When using a B distributor in a model A, what do you set the "initial" timing at?

Re: Bubble balancer from HF?

I have one of these and it works good. But since I tried balancing beads I no longer use it. I have no problems with the beads and I got rid of the fugly weights.

Re: What modern points do you use?

Why would the 6 cylinder points be any better that the V-8 points of the same era, which is what they used to the "Modern Upper Plates"?
