Re: What kind of jack do you carry

I use a crappy old 2 1/2T bottle jack and a couple of scraps of 2X12s. An old broom stick works for a handle. No rocket science here. Be sure to loosen the lug nuts before lifting and you’re good.

Re: Inductive tach

Re: K.R.Wilson box refinishing

If you are or know someone who is a wood worker, try the "Good Stuff". You will need to go to a real lumber yard or wood working store to find it. I've never seen it at the big box stores. It's an...

Re: Best sounding muffler ?

I used two 24" glass packs. Like 2manycars, I went with 1 3/4" dual pipes. Nice tone right from the start, they get better with age.
