Re: Directionals

When I tried that one, it worked perfectly -- until I started the engine. It would not work at all with the engine running, Worked OK with the engine off.

Re: Fs ignitions

My FSI Zipper failed after 5K miles. Even though FSI replaced it, and I have a spare module, I'm not so inclined to put it back in. I have a borrowed stock dizzy in now and it has worked perfectly...

Re: Grab handle

[QUOTE=Y-Blockhead;1975181]The one issue keeping me from fabing one is I don't want to drill mounting holes in my dash rail.

Isn't the one pictured just picking up existing mounting screws?

Re: Grease Fittings

Getting the old ones out is pretty much like pulling teeth. Grab them with a pair of vice grips and rock them back & forth while pulling.

I might have to eventually do something like Y-B shows above to aid in getting in and out of the vehicle (CCPU is probably the most difficult). I did get the door to open wider and that helps. As far...

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

A 1930 vehicle with sealed beam headlights did not exist, unless retrofitted.

In the United States of America, sealed-beam headlights were introduced in 1939.

Re: Thermostat update.

You don't have to tip the radiator to get a hose on. Just remove the top of the T-stat housing (4 bolts). Easy-Peasy.
