    Removing heat control tap on head

    also try to apply the force as closely to the head as possible. Use a good brand of penetrating oil and some mild heat..

    heat riser

    hello, pastries... one of the reasons I can't seem to get my weight under control, haha.. and the beer, and the chocolates... What did you visit in Belgium? Planning on coming back some day...?

    Temperature gauge add on

    I also have one of those but it is a bit hard to check under the bonnet while driving...:-)

    Temperature gauge add on

    just to have a second measurement I have installed a cheap "-made-in-China thermometer" bij glue-ing the probe on a nicely cleaned freeze plug on top of the head. It measures fast and accurate and gives me a good indication on the cooling performance. In combination with the stock gauge it works like a charm. It reacts much faster. I can even see everytime the thermostat opens. On a hot day (35°C) while going up and down hills the temperature was never exceeding 78°C. I could predict when the gauge in the dash was going to rise and when I would go down. Cheap and efficiënt dont we all like that...? Grtz from Belgium

    hello Larry, you seem to be concentrating on the ignition/timing.. sure it's not a carburation problem...?grtz

    I might fool around a bit with it... let's see what it brings... grtz

    next on the list... improve braking

    my excuses for not using the correct word.. I meant affordable. After I noticed that some 150 buyers were very satisfied (mostly FORD guys). I thought I'd give it a try. For 30 euro I can't make my hands dirty trying to invent something I can buy...

    hello folks... just came upon this, as I was preparing to fabricate my own device.... has somebody ever try this to adjust the brake shoes? looks neat and.... cheap...(sorry affordable...) regards, Franky

    next on the list... improve braking

    thanks for the good suggestions guys but I think that "re-engineering " the brake system is out of the question. You guys have no idea what our Belgian technical inspection is like. If the inspector notices any changes (and certainly on a safety devices) on the car, even if the braking performance increases by factor 10, you're in trouble... For this, and this reason only you should try to keep everything as original as possible. We live in a country full of rules and regulations. If I see what is possible in other countries... we can only dream of that...

    Wheel cylinders and parts

    I noticed before that there are so many different prices on the "same" cilinder..; going from 10$ to 70$ per piece... what is wisdom, are the expensive ones over rated and the cheaper ones pure junk...? What are the good brands? grtz

    next on the list... improve braking

    Hello friends, would replacing all wheel cylinders and installing a new master cylinder improve the braking behavior of the car? Is there experience available here with a master brake cylinder combined with somekind of a booster? I have looked into a transition set to disc brakes but most of the typical US parts (calipers) are not available around here...and I like to keep it somewhat original. So what would be the first thing to do to improve stopping. The brake liners look good as well as the brake drums. I am looking forward to a good discussion on this... take care and greetings from over the pond.
