Re: wiring

I'd suggest that before you dive into the wiring repair you get a look at a wiring diagram. Do you have Les Andrew's books ? They are in there. Or ask someone in the forum to post a picture, copy it...

Re: Marvel's Mystery Oil

4 ounces of MMO to 10 gallons of gas is what I have heard recommended. That is a 4 : 1280 ratio . Not much pollution there.

Re: Best location for master switch in a Tudor

Put it where you can easily reach it from your seat. It is up to you and how easily you move but it must be convenient to get to. Your choice.

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

Re: interesting cutoff switch

Steve: I used one of those and have a friend who did as well. We both had a real power loss due to the tiny contact area when switch was on. At 6 volts you can't stand much loss. Got worse over time...
