Re: Spring or frame problem?

Shackle wear, the spring center bolt not in place, broken leaf, or worn out springs, are some common causes. I added a metal shim on one side next to the center bolt, for a short term repair.

Re: Timing advance

The whole spark adjustment depends on where the initial timing is set. As well as all the mods, for example, higher compression heads. Possibly even how many times the stock head has been milled. As...

Re: 3 Different Size Wheels?

Use your fingers(2 or 3)side by side and measure between the spokes. There are different widths between manufacturers.

Re: Watter Wetter

Yes, I’ve used it. It does help, but the problem is a dirty radiator/block. I don’t use antifreeze, so I use a radiator/ water pump lubricant.

Re: Horn

Re: Adding coolant

Mine likes just below the baffle. If I shake the car hard, I can just see a little sloshing over the baffle. One way to tell if you are using water, is fill it just over the baffle, then after a...
