Re: Eastwood spray gun

Re: Gen charging Q

Solid state electronics can be great or problematic. A old cutout rarely goes bad. My opinion. Cheap also.


Circuit boards preform best at 70 degrees.

Re: Gen charging Q

If you have a "knub" cyclinder on the top of your gen. It's a cutout (as murre said) not a regulator. Off/on.

Re: 1938 Flathead V8 Race Motor-What’s it worth?

Good find. It is suited more for a midget then a full size car. Trade it for a good 59a and enjoy. If just selling... it's only worth what someone will pay. Put is up on the forum for 1 million or...

Re: Header Suggestion

JWLs book says about the same thing. Running dual pipes off the stock would be fine for most of us.

I like "headers" as they get heat off the motor quicker (?) and they sound cool. Prefer fenton...

Re: Battery purchase & best shut off location

Red top optima for me. I just disconnect it when it's not in use.


If storing for a long while. Months or over the winter I just take the battery out and put it in the shop. Charge it once when I...

Re: This AWFUL Bug...Explained!
