Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

I use the Wix. It is already painted black and the label just peals off. Looks better 'hidden', IMO

Re: Radial sway

Don't get the shackle nuts so tight that it binds on the spring and hanger. I usually tighten mine snug and then back them off a little. You may have been OK.

Good find on the backing plate.

Re: Radial sway

John, easy check for the shackles. Put a wrench on the shackle nut and turn. If the nut turns with the cotter pin still in, you got issues. :eek:
