Re: Engine issue

Why do you mention a Walt DuPont engine ? Your problem doesn't appear to be because of Walt DuPont's work. You seem to have a fuel delivery problem.

Re: Roadster Windshield Pivots Not Holding.

On my roadster, I use Adel clamps to keep the windshield from coming back towards me. I bolt them on using the wind-wing threaded holes.

Re: Drake 40 dlx headlamp rims (bezels)

Why can't the manufacturers make the quality that we have come to expect, rather that producing something that may look okay in their catalog, but not in real life. In the early 1970's I had an early...

Re: 1932 "survivoration"
