  1. I have them on FEF...jsut know they don't seal as good as they could.
  2. I have 2 of those on the shelf....back when I was hot to put them on FEF....needless to say I spent over $200 on them....slightly different version tho, mine do not have the bag, they suggest a BALL jar as a reservoir!
  3. If memory servers the B series gap is WAY smaller....my brain is saying .012".....but I might just be going senile....
  4. As stated above, much of the frame will never see direct "hard" sunlight/UV. But the front bumper horns will for sure.....
  5. On my truck I pretty much went "snug" for the brass tapered nuts. And I check them regularly.
  6. I made brackets that where held on the outer corner headbolts, placed the engine and removed them and then torqued (as they are the last).
  7. The opener itself likely has a sensor that is tracking the force needed to open the door. This sensor system can go bad. Garage openers do go bad. As Sniper says, it's a RENTAL, not YOUR problem, but the owners.
  8. Depends, what did you use to prime? Oil you might lose prime,vasoline/grease you'd be fine.
  9. I dressed the bottom of my carb on sandpaper on a piece of glass.....helped a bunch.
  10. I looked for a LONG time for the cloth stuff for FEF....never did find any, used stuff from a Stude source....as close as I could get.
