Re: Stubborn Zenith

Added a bushing there and it's very snug. I sprayed starting fluid around it and it didn't surge on me.

I remember seeing a one piece flat bar with angled turned up edges to hold the hood in place. I thought it was in the back of the restorer magazine but haven't seen it since. Anyone know of this and...

Model B Distributor Swap

Re: UPDATE....Ok so a brand new radiator and it still runs hot

My old radiator was fine as long as the temps didn't get above 75 degrees. It too was a 2 row 8 fin. Had it flushed twice. It just takes 3 cores to do the job.

Re: UPDATE....Ok so a brand new radiator and it still runs hot

120 over Pistons Needed
