Re: HULL MOLD???

In my opinion (which may be worth no more than you paid for it). . . To believe there would be a profitable 'market' for such a setup would fall in a category well beyond, and exponentially surpassing unjustifiable optimism. The reasons for not doing what you propose are to numerous to list. What is...

Re: Fuel regulator mount

A carburetor on a high performance engine will work well in the 5-7 psi range. If your pump (and lines) can deliver the volume then the pressure really becomes secondary. QuickFuel says 6.5psi is optimum While that is fundamentally correct, I will clarify for whoever may read that and is unaware . ...

Re: 1/4 rod keeps breaking.

The Holley does have sufficient room to drill and tap for 5/16". I had similar issues with mine years ago, and that was the fix for me. I additionally bottomed out a rod coupling nut against the base, like a jam nut. This helps to spread any strain over a greater area of the stud. Haven't ever ...

Re: Steering cable Teleflex

As far as added resistance (wear on your arm), there should not be any in either case when they are new and things are set up correctly. The practical differences that immediately come to mind are: a) Teleflex cable has about 8" travel vs about 6" for typical PTO cable. This is a good thin...

The Nason line is made by Dupont so as Gary said, just about any auto paint supply store would carry it.

First thing that pops up on an internet search is http://watkinspaintsupply.com/ in Titusville.
