Re: Help me identify these holes in my dash

Maybe add a vintage compass that would cover the extra holes.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

But you have to remember that with the current exchange rate $300 US dollars is equal to about $400 Canadian dollars. That Fenton would be about $245 US.

Re: Stromberg S-jet

Been running mine since the new 97's came out. One stuck open once and they replaced the plastic floats with brass ones and I never had a problem again. I only run non oxygenated gas, no alcohol.

Re: Starter wrap

I think the starter insulation wrap is used on Chevys that have the solenoid on the starter motor. I believe its the solenoid that doesn't want to work when it gets hot not the starter motor.

Re: Diaphragm clutch noise?

Planned on doing that but its a custom job that I machined so it will take a little more work. It uses the stock Ford carrier and the smaller throwout bearing that the diaphragm PP needs.

Re: Shop led lighting

They make both line voltage LEDs and LEDs that use the existing ballast. If your fixtures have existing electronic ballasts it is really easy and cheap to just replace the bulbs.
