Re: Rockwell of Ford head stud nuts

I bet the plating shop is concerned with hydrogen embrittlement and failure of the nuts, give then a call russcc, and see what they say.

Re: Cam Timing question for the experts on Isky 1007B

The first character is a lower case ďLĒ and the part number should read L100B for the often copied Litterio L100, in this case the blower grind with the B suffix.

Re: Cam Timing question for the experts on Isky 1007B

On the L100B the B is for blower grind, valve timing is different for less overlap.

Re: Junior Johnson Passes On

I see you have deleted your mention that “it was all over the news some time ago”, but a number of Google searches show nothing even remotely like a meth arrest. Sorry, but I think this deserves a...

Re: Junior Johnson Passes On

Junior was a lot of things, but I seriously doubt he was involved with meth. Is there proof, or at least a link to this insinuation?

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

You are right, and I stand corrected. Effective Jan.1, 2020 eBay will start collecting and disbursing any local sales taxes enacted by municipalities in Illinois.

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

If your state charges sales tax then do your homework, see if your place of residence charges an additional amount.
As a resident of Illinois I will pay 6.3%, the state sales tax rate. Beyond that...

Re: Mallory Dual Point Distributor Condense

Bubba, in looking at the large, old, brass Mallory condensers I have seen the bottom stamped with different numbers, 28 or 36. Might that designate different microfarad values?
