    I need to look it up, 3.6? ltr V6? something like that. This is a different bolt pattern than the 9in.
    Also, will probably have to change out the throwout bearing as diaphragm requires a rounded face bearing.

    if not available in UK order from rockauto.com , they deliver worldwide , great prices, accept cards, excellent service. choose the cheaper freight option, takes the same time as the expensive ones which are supposed to be faster.

    Good to see your electrical panel. I was wondering about your progress on that.
    Hope your LEDs work better than the ones I put in my Stepvan motorhome that look the about the same. Lots of nice white light, but very little difference between high and low as far as aim.

    I figured Id give them a try,30 bucks or so from amazon,there is enough ampacity in the circuit to go halogen If I don't like them.I was impressed by 6000 lumens,kind of like a hand grenade,just gotta get it close don't have to aim. Progress is constant,whats in question is how much..

    Hard to tell whats been done to the lower end without tearing it apart.One thing to keep in mind is workmanship is a constant,if its cheap and hack in one way it usually cheap and hacked in all ways.

    Steve,

    Lamborghini and Ferrari require too much maintenance.
    Stay with the coupe.

    Model B folks that run the original fuel pump - I have a question. Some background - I'm running the stock pump that I put a rebuild kit in. My engine is a little warmed up with has a Lions head, Winfield cam, and a dual carb Thomas intake running a pair of 81's. It's running very rich. I've checked the float settings on the carbs several times. Using both the wet and dry method. I've tried the recommend setting of 15/32" for fuel level as well as dropping a little. Ignition appears to be performing fine. I've tried advancing and retarding the timing. Continues to be very rich. Can the B pump be pushing fuel past the needle/seat and cause my rich condition? My understanding is that these pumps should be making 1 1/2 - 3 lbs of pressure, which a Stromberg needle and seat should be able to handle. Do these pumps really make more pressure?

    Believe the 81 flows at about 130CFM,two would make 260 CFM flow rate.Model A engine flows at 160 CFM.Fuel pressure most likely not the issue,float level could be.setting up a progressive linkage can stage the roll on of the second carb,negating the effect of both accel pumps dumping fuel at the same rate

  26. Well - I've checked the clutch cover on the 12 valve 2.5 diesel Ranger PU that my neighbour has and that's nowhere near the height of a three finger 9" clutch. Guess I'll keep looking.

    Thanks for posting, you are right, a diaphram will typically not be as tall as a coil spring PP.
    I'll keep asking around, I have seen a few in the past.

    Why 9" clutch, is there not room for a 10"? Should be a much more common size.
