Re: Nu-rex Timing wrench

- You're going to need a wrench to hold the cam anyways, so why not get one that'll pull double-duty?


- It does a pretty good job at setting timing; and with the manual spark...

Re: spark, but not in the right places

Thanks; I was curious because I had a similar experience shortly after getting my car - replaced the coil, and the engine suddenly just started working like it should. I have no idea how old it was,...

yup - don't really understand why folks do that, especially the ones along the lines of "How do I..." - mostly because I see this forum as a repository of knowledge - and by not having the subject...

Re: Popular Science article about the Model A Ford

Re: Tunes
