Re: Are repo engine pans identical to original?

I agree. They seem to 'finish off' the engine compartment.

Re: Oil Breather tube 20 inch flex tube

Do you need to cut a hole in the engine pan when using the Fumaze? Or remove the engine pan?? If so I would rather use the flex tube.

Re: 16" Wheels

Bob, What size are the tires in your first picture? They look bigger than the normal 4.75/5.00-19. I like them.

Re: Car Will Not Start--No Apparent Spark

Yeah, happens a lot. A person asks a question but does not follow or understand the advice. Then the thread turns into a lesson in frustration for every one.

Re: Car Will Not Start--No Apparent Spark

Re: Model A Tires

Re: Fuel Line, Shut-Off Valve to Firewall: Why Made Of Hard Steel?

I don't have a answer to your questions but why not use Ni-Copp for your fuel lines. Easy to form, rated for brake service.

Re: Modification to idle circuit in Zenith A and B carburetors

Jim, what would that "non-hardening gas-proof sealer" be? Most sealers I have seen are gas resistant. It would be good to know what is gas proof. Thanks.
