Re: If only I had won the lottery.

Re: Antifreeze Loss Mystery

After you fill the radiator, start the engine and look for bubbles in the radiator. If you do, you need to re-torque you head, which you should do anyway with a fresh rebuild. A loose head will also...

For old cars, especially A's, you can't top "The Waltons", still being shown on the Hallmark chanel.

Re: Cracked nuts

The fuel leak was the reason for replacing the shut off valve. It wasn't leaking at the nut but after seeing the crack I didn't trust it any more. It would have been easier to order a new fuel line...

Re: Won't Start....Help

Try filing your points and resetting the gap. The same thing just happened to me and that's all it took to fix it.
