Re: Test your knowledge, what do we have here?

Possibly a kerosine conversion from WWll. Start on gasoline and when the thing gets warm it switches over.

Re: Bumper height . . .

You should check to see if your frame is square. If sometime in history there was a front impact the front frame horns could be bent or the frame out of square. Lots of years and lots of wear
