Re: Engine question

The Burtz engine is not hard to get. Go to his website and signup and you'll probably have your engine by October. Price is $3900.00 plus taxes and shipping from west coast.

Re: LED Turnsignals

Folks, here is an electronic flasher that works with LED taillights. I have been using it for over a year with no problems. Just make sure you tie the 3rd wire to a good ground.

Re: B Carb Questions

Glenn F: to do it right, you need to remove all the brass passage plugs and the brass GAV fitting. It would be to your benefit to purchase the carburetor manual "Restoring The Model 'A' and 'B'...

Re: B Carb Questions

Gene F: to properly rebuild a "B" carb, you should remove all bass plugs and clean the passages. There are a few hidden passages that can't be cleaned without doing that. One is in the idle circuit...

Re: Gas Tank Sealer

I second what JayJay said. I did my tank 15 years ago and have had NO problems since. I used the 3 step POR-15 sealer. Again, follow the prep steps to the letter.

Re: AutoLite heater install

That is a genuine Autolite waffle manifold. Here is a picture of the cover that should be used with it (captured off of ebay). The item number for it is:284140039821.

Re: AutoLite heater install

I'll have to agree with Benson and Taffrail. That's not the correct firewall opening for a Autolite Waffle Heater. Here is a photo of my Autolite, your hole is definitely in the wrong location.

Re: AutoLite heater install

If you have a original Autolite waffle exhaust manifold, I would look on-line for the original cover for it. It will lineup better with the hole in the firewall.
