    Mag Needle, man that would go great with my Frammis rod and my Benson Brake bar, now if I can just find a Hydra Sonic Gumside I will be good to go.

    I had no idea what they were talking about until I said it in my head REAL SLOW.

    Too bad that engine is missing the 710 cap.

    It would go well in the Ford "cabin chassis" that was advertised in one of the local papers.

    HAHAHA. Reminds me of my college days. Had a guy turn in a paper on "Amino Acids." The title on his cover sheet read " Mean Old Acids."
    I don't think he graduated.

    "This has a glass bowl for the filter which seems to be intack."

    Wow.....a Mag Needle and the glass bowl for the filter is "intack"!?!?! This guy is sitting on a gold mine.

    I notice the actual mag needle isn't quite visible in the watch out.
    Tomorrow someone is going to post..."I bought this junk flathead with rust all over it on Ebay, and it turned out to have a Harmon Collins Magneedle and a brand new 286 stroker assembly and an intack glass bowl with Barney Navarro's name cast into it and..."

    I searched for what was probably a full two minutes until I started repeating in my head, "Mag Needle, Magneedle, magneedle, Oh damnit I get it."

  16. This is why I come on this forum, to learn the proper names of equipment used on these fathead engines.

    Its too bad we all can't run his auction up to some crazy amount and then hold him to delivering a flatty with a Mag Needle! Thats the cruel in me coming out...funny shit. I just passed on this listing a few days ago and didn't think much more about it, but now I keep checking it for a revised version and posted comments. I bet the counter has rolled over by now.

    Somebody ask this guy what brand the Mag Needle is.

    Hey, Knock It Off.

    Didn't your Momma tell you not to make fun of Waterheads.
  23. Can the Mag Needle be adjusted without a metric crescent wrench?
