Re: Shock fluid test results

Re: Toe-In Lesson Learned

Yah' something is fishy with the measure of 8 degrees toe in??? If that angle is suppose to be a measure of the wheel angle relative to the vehicle centerline, 8 degrees would equate to 3.9 inches of...

Re: Carburetor control

I think that "Ruth" got it right... Look close at the photo, the housing is stepped. This device controls the "in and out" of the choke rod in two measures steps, full out "start" , half out "warm"....

Re: very early lugnuts on 28

Just as an aside, 23/32" apparently was a standard size nut. I encounter this size on occasion and have a couple of open end wrenches in that size. It's not truly 18mm as 23/32" converts to 18.3mm...
