Re: SNYDER’S 5.5 head vs 6.1

I have the 5.5 head. That's all that was available 11 years ago when I needed one. It replaced a Police head that was on the engine when I bought the pickup.

Re: 6 to 12 Volt & Neg ground

Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

We really don't have that many roads in Alaska. However, we manage to take in about 1,000 miles or more on our longer tours around the state.

Re: Light Bar Repaint Question

The horn does not depend on a ground path thru the headlight bar. I always run a separate ground for the headlights.

Re: Small mirror, big blind spot

In addition to the 5" mirrors on both sides, I had the rear window tinted (5%) and also have an inside mirror as well. Not perfect, but gets me by.
