Re: Head gasket?

Re: Head gasket?

Guten Abend lieber Dave.

If you retighten the Z-head screws repeatedly, do you only use the same torque or do you loosen every single screw a little beforehand?

Your copper spray irritates...

Re: Steering wheel paint

Re: Model A's & Airplanes

Next picture is a Fokke Wulff "Stieglitz" (Goldfinch)....

Re: Anyone using a horn relay
