Re: gas tank problems

Hi Steve,

I have (had) a similar problem. My solution is to put some large and roughened brass nuts in the tank. They slide over the ground during the ride and scrape away dirt.

At the same...

Re: Oil in intake ports

ou, I use a litle filter named " MANN 77-2 ". It is not too finely meshed, so that even thick-tough oil is pumped into the valve chambers during cold starts. It also has a high bypass back pressure...

Re: Oil in intake ports

Old Ugly,

Re: Crank case breather spits up oil

This can be due to the fact that blow-by gases between the piston and cylinder are increased due to wear.

Or maybe motor oil that has become considerably too thin?

Re: Turn signal beeper or other solutions

I don't like an electronic beeper in this car. So I soldered a small clapper to an old relay on its anchor. This relay gets its impulse directly from the...

Re: Multiple Oil Leaks after sitting?

Hi Daryl,

on my revised engine, the crankshaft rear seal started to leak badly after 2000 miles. About 8 ounces for 100 miles.

I took thick SAE 50 oil, tried STP thickener - there was little...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

The performance of the engine and its idling have remained unchanged.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Hi Ugly,

use approximately 1:400. That's 3.5 US fl oz on 11 gallons of fuel. Much more is not necessary and also not helpful.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Was that rubber seals? In this application, cork gasket is the better way.

MMO contains synthetic ester oil and isoalkanes as well as cycloalkanes. These attack some plastics. Rubber seals swell...

Aretino,
yes you are right. What we change on the A should be adapted to the filigree style of the original time.
