Thumbs up Re: Carlisle

Quit fear mongering. You nor I nor anyone else knows exactly what's going on with the Covid in the states. Funny that the US is the only first world country that can't manage the infection...

Lightbulb Re: Carlisle

Yeah, that's part of the problem. Add in that the certifying facility gets $55k for a Covid death versus $35k for a non covid and figure the true totals won't be known for a couple years. Then...

Re: Carlisle

I looked it up a month ago and the 2019 automobile fatality rate was considerably higher than the covid death rate. You are literally more likely to die driving than from covid.

Re: 28 7 tooth Steering gear

My steering wheel shaft was moving axially in the housing. Ditched the spacers and paper gasket and everything came back into tolerance.

Re: Trying Something Different For Heat

This is an option I was thinking about on the speedster before building the seats. At my completion rate it'll be next winter before it becomes an issue. :)

Re: Starter sticking

Mine sticks if I crank for more than 5-10 seconds. Repop switch. When I first tried to start it the actuating rod shorted out because the plastic nub on the end was missing... Took a bit to figure...

Re: Shock fluid test results

I'm running 80W-140 in mine on the speedster and they seem to be working OK. I haven't taken mine apart but they look really good on the outside and all have consistent resistance.

Per your test...

Just a quick post showing last weeks progress. Spent last Saturday seeing if I could get it to run and dang if it didn't fire up and even charge while running. Put a couple short miles on it and...

Re: Custom building vintage style wiring

I don't think that stuff is thick enough. American autowire has it as part of this ignition switch kit.

Nah, not the loom. The actual insulation on the terminals like the left side terminals on this dash wiring.

Re: Custom building vintage style wiring

Thanks for the ideas. I'm actually trying to find the heavy walled insulation that goes around the wire terminal. I assume that it's some type of heat shrink but it has a 1/8" thick wall. Probably...

Re: Hershey cancelled

I knew this year would be a bust and joked about 2020 being the year we did nothing but dang it... Spring Carlisle is still a couple weeks away and I'm waiting for the governor to nix it too.
