Re: Victoria with moveable stick shift

Not sure it was designed to be done while moving, and I wouldn't try it.

Re: Distributor shaft end play

I can't talk to the proper clearance. But here are my thoughts on the issue: May be binding on the lower bushing, if it was not pressed all the way in. You could just hit the bottom of the...

Re: 31 Roadster pickup cab swap to Truck cab

Re: Model B Distributor in a Model A
