Re: Contact info for Bill Barlow

A real shame that Bill is not providing this service anymore. I am in denial hoping it is not true.

Re: Float-A-Motor mounts

Just make sure you properly install the rear transmission mount. I think this is key to stopping the engine movement issues Brent refers to above.

Re: 6 volt signal flasher with beeper

If you can find a 6v relay you can set the buzzer up so it doesn't buzz when your foot is in the brake pedal. That way you don't have to listen to it when you are approaching an intersection or...

Re: Centrifugal Advance

Thought the high compression head required less advance? Do these units come for both regular head and HC head or can you adjust the max advance?

I use a piece of drinking straw around each terminal to isolate them from each other. The straw gets compressed when the plug end or bulb is inserted. Has worked for me but is a bit finicky.

Re: Speedometer Question

Mine dd that. I loosened off the coupler where it screws into the speedometer housing. My theory is that the cable was too long. I have a mitchel overdrive so it is a different setup. However, it...
