Re: getting a little loud...

A friend of mine has a Speedster that he drives a lot. He does not have a muffler. Just a long straight tail pipe.

Why do I have pics I cannot upload

I click on attachments, and add file. The photo shows up, but there is a yellow triangle under status. It tells me that it does not know the dimensions of the file. Everything is good on the desktop and I can transmit the file with no problems. What is this software looking for? This is a frequent o...

My coil is on the passenger side of the firewall. There is a loop of string hanging from the rod under the hood that all the wires run through. Never a problem.

Re: Drive shaft follies.

You will have to remove the universal so you can pull the shaft and drill the hole. You do not want to leave all those metal filings in there. 3/16" inch hole is big enough.

Re: how do you fix a gas leak?

FWIW, Jamestown Distributors(boating) states that backyard mechanics use yellow teflon tape. However, there is always a risk that a piece of tape can break off and clog your fuel line. It also states that the yellow tape is for propane, butane, and natural gas. They recommend liquid or paste, Permat...

Re: how do you fix a gas leak?

The biggest reason I gave up on trying a newer version is the normal pipe threads and the NPT pipe threads. I have not found a way to tell the difference unless I have some special tool. i will stick with the Lang's version, although I would rather have the teflon valve with the longer throw.

Re: Spare Tire Carrier Heresy

You need the carrier directly above this post. No need to put holes in your fender. Hopefully the three holes are underneath your body where this carrier is positioned. I have this carrier on my 1920 and I believe 1924 is the same. If the bracket for the light doesnt cover up the tail light portion ...

Re: Correct 1915 magneto horn mounting?

My magneto horn is not working while in the car. It has been tested on an HCCT. I am assuming the ground is not good. What would be the best place to run a ground wire?

Re: Testing a horn

I would presume you need to test a magneto horn on an HCCT. I looked at my Lionel transformer and because that puts out AC. However, one is 18V AC and the other is 21V AC. Can you test a magneto horn with the transformer or is the voltage too high?

The lacing is wax impregnated which made it stiff enough that I just bent the last 2 inches or so and stuck it between the shroud and the radiator. It isn't going anywhere.
