Re: Oldest daily driver... with highway speeds

Without changing the whole rear end, the F2 came with only one ratio, 4:86. While I used mine for everyday, it was town speeds. I think most came with a 6, but does not matter if 6 or 8, past 40/45...

Re: line going to timing gear cover 46 V8

"Does it look like it is a factory type of connection into the timing cover" Yes it is inline with a rib cast in the cover. Not for a banjo fitting, small flare nut and maybe 1/4OD tube.

Re: Motometer Locking Cap Installation

So what you are saying is, the Stanco or Jarvis hinge can end up most anywhere within an arc of where it fits best to the neck? Or is there a way to adjust so it folds straight back instead off to...

Re: Motometer Locking Cap Installation

If the neck has been off anytime in the past it may not have been clocked right when put back on. Clocking would not be important if just using a regular cap.

Re: Spindle Conversion Reversal
