Re: Shipping engine

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

Re: Upper radiator hose measurement

HRP over on the HAMB posted about using the silver flexible hose from an air cooled VW to form a mock up and then taking it to the parts store to match up a hose.

Re: Shocking horn!

Could it be a poor ground and when you push the horn button its finding ground via your body? Just a thought.
