Re: Resistance Ignition Wire

the round style dist cap with std plug wires is strictly after market.I would never use a modern style cap as the original type is one of the things that makes the A & B engines unique.

Re: Rear end differential

If you live in an area with very few hills,you could install 3-27 gears.If in hilly country,3-54 gears would be a good choice.

Re: Removal of Oil Pump Idler Gear Shaft

Put a short piece of pipe over the idler shaft,then get a bolt to match threads in shaft.Screw the nut up the bolt,and with a couple washers under nut,turn the nut down & it will pull the shaft out.

Re: 59 block oil filter question

reverse the lines,use steel tubing & solder the elbow that goes in the side of filter & drill a 1/16" hole in it for a restrictor.The filter has nothing to do with the trans problem.
