Re: Bosch H4 Headlight too much for Pan Genny?

What genny are you running. I ran a CE on my pan with no battery and my light always flickered at idle. With a battery you shouldn't experience it as bad. How is your light wired? If your light feed...

Re: Making Brass shift knobs

What rear tire is that? Mine is about worn out and I think I'm going to end up with a knobby 23" tire for the front end and that tire looks like it would compliment it just right...

Re: oil lines

only three connections? does it have a drain? Should have return, vent, supply and drain. if there are only three bungs you may have to get creative.

Re: Mounting Mechanical Oil Gauge - Questions

I called three shops, one shop told me 200-250, the other two told me 250-300. I don't think a repair is in the cards for this particular gauge. I like it, and I appreciate the vintage look and...

Re: Misc. Chop & Vintage parts

I want that spool so bad for my 23" rim but I can't justify having a cool drum and a bitchin' spool for the same rim.

Free bump for ya.

Re: Mounting Mechanical Oil Gauge - Questions

All the temp gauges I've see used a sending unit with a tube that was sealed to the gauge with an inert gas. I can rig up something to look nice but It'd just end up routing the oil directly to the...

Re: Shovelhead Diet

adding a 21" front rim and a set of 2 over would probably be about the edge aesthetically, at least for me. of course with a little bit of rake a set of 4 over would look good.
