Re: ZDDPlus

"anti-wear oil additive" I always believed that oil in it's self was an anti-wear additive. At least the packaging says it is.

Re: Randy Gross's drums

"Randy Gross supplies excellent cast iron drums at a good price."

SO WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, HOW, on the drums? Inquiring minds care to know.

Cast iron is the way to go. Not steel.

Re: Distributor Cam

I have the 'B' dist cam.
The highs and lows are almost not distinguishable.
What I did after reading Marco's dissertation on timing was to paint the cam with a Pentel black magic marker.

Re: Steering column mount

That's a neat under tank/dashboard mount. But I already don't have enough wheel to belly room on my '30 roadster and this sure looks like the steering column is being lowered on to my belly.

Re: Removing rust stains from radiator-SOLVED!
