Re: speedster project. Craveroiler/Marvel Mystery Oil

Hudson, When the incoming air passes thru the oil, the air gets saturated with oil as the bubbles vaporize the oil. I assume that the more air you allow thru the oil, the more saturated the air becomes and the more oil saturated air is going to the intake and mixing with the incoming air/fuel ratio.

Re: Cars you once owned it would be nice to have now

I should have kept the 1957 T Bird with E code (factory dual 4 barrel carbs) with overdrive transmission and rare triple bronze interior/paint/top color combo. The 57 Ford convertible was nice. As well as the 64 Galaxey 500 XL convertible. I also had a 57 Jaguar but never could get it to run right. ...

SOLD 2 Tiger Timers NORS

I have 2 NORS Tiger Timers that I bought with a bunch of other stuff at a living estate sale. These are old stock from probably the late 80s - 90s era. There are a few very small rust spots from being in the box for years. You can see them in the photos. Not hardly worth mentioning but I try to desc...

I'm not 100% sure but I think Billy made Rootleibs gas tanks.

There may be a China supplier but I am unaware of one if there is. Billy made the tanks in batches of 10 at a time. He usually shipped them 4 at a tim...

When Ed passed away several years ago the business was willed to his helper Billy. Billy kept making the tanks till he passed away sever...

Jonah, You remove the spark plug, Then you screw the whistle with its adapter in place of the spark plug.
