Re: CCA Cold Cranking Amps?

Then try some large jumper cables from the battery to the block and...

Re: USA Victor AF small bore gasket .

In the mid 70's you could buy a whole boot load of new parts from Argentina for $100.

PS. In 1975
1 $A = $US 1.34
today
1 $A = $US 0.68

however
1975 1 $A = GBP 0.58
today 1 $A = GBP 0.53
