Re: Anyone run a Lion Head

They could be ordered with different compression ratios, that maybe what happened in the example you test drove/rode.

Re: Winfield Tool KRW Hub Puller

Mitchell Manufacturing makes one as well. It works well, and on both styles of hubs, indented ring or protruding ring.

Re: Charging 6 volt Battery

I charge the battery in the car, no matter how the battery is connected. I don’t charge the car.

Positive terminal to the positive battery terminal, negative to negative.

Re: Any Model A owners in Sedona - Flagstaff - Cottonwood - Clarkdale - Jerome ?

Re: Mode A Piston expander/ knurling tool to Buy
