Re: Whitewalls

That stuff Goodyear puts on can be a pain to get off. I found that pot cleaning pads work good. Won't harm the whitewall. Use Dawn dish soap to lube the pad with generous amount of water.

Re: Carburetor

I take them apart and use carb cleaner and brake cleaner with fine steel wool. Blow everything out with air.

Re: Alternative Air Filter Replacement

It can be really difficult to find replacement filters for some of the old ones that were used. I gave up and continue to clean the one I have.

Re: front brake, rollers: what am i doing wrong...

I agree with the two previous posts. I used a heavy screw driver to spread the shoes while trying to snap the shoe inward. Your shoes are not seated right.

Re: Ammeter Fire

Re: B Carb on an A?

The addition of the Power Jet in the B carb makes a world of difference to an A's performance. The engine no long has to rely solely on the GAV for extra gas.
