Re: Blowing fuses in my '33

Re: 1933 manifold wiper fitting problem

I do see what you mean. That is what I see. A taper to the exact size of the brass fitting then a hole the same size as the opening in the fitting. Looks correct to me.

Re: 1933 manifold wiper fitting problem

The tubing slides freely through the fitting so no problem there. I wii inspect the manifold threaded opening and test with only the tube as you suggested. Here's hoping that nothing is blocking the...
