Re: General Info

Don, don't you mean FL300? The FL400 is a smaller filter, if memory serves I think the 400s are used on Escorts etc. Not sure if the sealing surface is same as the the FL300.

Re: Ryan Newman Ford

Some of the guys on the NASCAR facebook page said it was oil, not gas that was running onto the ground in that wreck. Had it been gas the car would likely have been a firebomb.

Re: Junior Johnson Passes On

I met him several times mostly at tracks as a fan, last time was probably at Bristol or Martinsville. But most memorable was in the early 90s when Bill Elliott was driving for him. I stopped by his...

Re: 1916 T Publication

Thanks for the info. As said, he has no interest in selling it but wanted a sort-of value for it probably in order to either share it to his grandkids, or to protect it from further deterioration.

Re: original paint y blocks

I still have the heads that came off the engine, ECZ's were used on the rebuild. I'll have to look at those old ones & see what the #s are on them.

Re: original paint y blocks

Sal that engine above has the carb & intake you got from me a few years ago, not sure if the manifold was painted too. I got the block near Akron Ohio but don't know its origin.

Re: original paint y blocks

Closest color we could find to what was on the block when I got it. Can't remember what it is called.

Re: Air Cleaner ID help - ECZ-9600-A
