I need 4sets of Wide 5 wheel studs, I've checked with van Pelt and others without luck. I measured best I could and went to Dormans' website but they didn't have anything.
Any suggestions?

Re: Differences between Fords' 'A' & 'B'?

I'll look this evening when I get home but I am pretty sure I've seen, for instance, a 1930 45A and a 1930 45B Coupe. I remember flipping the pages back and forth to see if there was a feature that...

Re: Zenith float weight

I can see I'll have to get a better scale, I use a TOMCO. It might weight 31grams, I've never checked the accuracy of the scale. But I will tomorrow.

Zenith float weight

I'm going thru a zenith and the float looks ok but it is heavy, it weights about 7/8ths of an ounce. Is that normal for these carbs?
