I would put a new one in and see how it works out before going too far.Glass fuses really are not able to take much abuse,and the way they are mounted destroys them.Rigid mount,constant...

Multiple disc clutch question

Does anybody have the spec for the thickness of the lined discs in a multiple disc clutch?Overall thickness,not just the thickness of the lining material.

Re: Harbor Freight

Re: Opportunity to buy a 2nd Model A

When I got my license in 1972 I found the A was too cold to use that winter.I found that a 61 Beetle with no heat was a lot warmer than the A.They multiply like A's too.After the first one I owned a...

Re: Mechanical Brakes adjustment

I have made quite a bit of money from that board.From people that adjusted their brakes with it,and then having to pay me to adjust them properly.

Re: photo on new Snyder catalog

Do RHD cars have the horn on the right side? I never thought about it.One thing I did notice in the picture is that I think it has sealed beam adapter rings behind the headlight lenses.

Re: Leaking Gas Tank

Have you taken your dash panel off to verify this? I've never heard of one leaking there,when gas leaks around that tunnel I have always found it to be the gas guage leaking,just running down there.

Re: '30 under tank gas valve threads

I think you need to back up a little bit.The tank thread size is 1/4 pipe.It is not fine.The outlet to the gas line is not pipe or compression,it is flare.
