  1. I use a 20/50 multigrade oil and my needle does not move a bit away from 40 or slightly higher. Not if I am idling nor if I am running at 100km/hr.
  2. Happy B-day Mr Asche. The carb that you made for me works like a charm.... thanks again.
  3. also try to apply the force as closely to the head as possible. Use a good brand of penetrating oil and some mild heat..
  4. 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...?
  5. Thanks Doc, I am going to digg in this in the coming days... grtz, Franky
  6. howdie! small question... what are exactly the symptoms of a bad working heat riser??? thanks, greetings from Belgium! Franky
  7. I also have one of those but it is a bit hard to check under the bonnet while driving...:-)
  8. 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
  9. mmm. I'd put my money on Plymouthy and mr Coatney... 😉
  10. hello Larry, you seem to be concentrating on the ignition/timing.. sure it's not a carburation problem...?grtz
  11. I might fool around a bit with it... let's see what it brings... grtz
  12. 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...
  13. 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
  14. 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...
