Re: two tooth steering box lubrication

Re: Looking for opinions - compression low on 2 & 3

For $36 delivered, why take the time to build your own. That's a no brainer for me.

But wait. Look at this. $26.00. Now this is a no brainer.

Re: Fuel tank spark arrestor

Bos, I would not bother to install it. It is not needed today vs 100 years ago.

I had them and removed them for better gas flow and some nozzles don't like them.

Compression test results, opinions please.

I have a 6.1 Snyders head. About 3,000 miles on the engine. Head was torqued down many times.
