Re: Cool-A-Ford valve cover accessory information?

I was thinking that also, pulling the air through by means engine vacuum... carb intake. What does the back side look like? It could introduce a lot of dirt into the valve area, but keep it out of the cylinders... Like an oil bath air cleaner.

According to this chart, it was made in the later part of 1928 before the change over to the 96A. The attached link gives a little more information on the Model 96. It would be great to see ...

Re: Free Start

My thought is "what was happening at the time it broke" was only the final straw which broke the proverbial camel's back.
