Re: Project getting close to the finish line

Have found some of the replacement tabs are not correct spring type steel.
They tend to bend and loss of tension yo hold hub caps.
I ended up fitting some old ones removed from a spare rim.

Re: Intake Valve not seating

Pour a little fuel around the valve to seat area. It will give you an idea how good a seal you may have with the exchanged valve to seat tightness.

Re: Rough idle, low vacuum reading ?

Thats what I'm running with an 8BA Max 1 cam single 97 carb.
His distributors with an adjustable vaccum advance are great units to run.

Re: more carb problems

Bowl float level to correct and adjust if required. Every time its pulled down there is also another opportunity to create another problem.

Re: crab pertronix 59ab

Are you 12v or 6v for starters. Consensus is that the 12v system is better than 6v system. Personally I'm with the old stlye points set up which when serviced correctly are great.
