    Optium battery in parallel, Powermaster alternator

    i have a 48 new yorker with 2 OPTIMA batteries in parallel ,it turns over very quickly,I also have a 41 Windsor with a single OPTIMA ,it seems to be fine but not as quick as the new yorker with two .Both cars are generator equipped .Seems like the smaller 6 cylinder engine is fine with just one.

    Big Jim's fender skirts

    i i used them for skirts for my 41 windsor ,they are really nice ,would use them again!
  11. I have 97s outside pair but the middle carb is the original B and B as I needed it to handle the fluid drive Anti stall feature,seems to work pretty well when warmed up after about 5 minute .Not sure if the gas consumption is much better or worse!
