Re: How to prime the flatty

Re: Help, 8ba suddenly running hot.

I was just reminiscing about the small pinhole leak that I had in my rad last year. I added some bars leak type crap that stopped the leak. Maybe it has turned my rad in to a low flow model?

Re: Help, 8ba suddenly running hot.

Thanks guys. I am going to check the thermostats and try disconnecting one censer at a time to see if I can get to the bottom of this.

Re: Help, 8ba suddenly running hot.

The only thing I can think of is that I put the battery in backwards accidentally for about a minute yesterday. (brain fart) Could this have messed up the gauge?

8BA exhaust crossover tube?

I appears that nobody makes a crossover tube for my 51 vert or any other late flathead for that matter. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Eric.
