FWIW I've been using Kroil for about 25 years as a "penetrating oil". It was being used at one of the machine tool companies I worked for. The stuff seems to really work for me. Of course letting it

I just finished building and wiring our dash for a TR-4. I'm curious as to why you want a 3 position switch. I used 2 position switches for fuel pump, ignition, fan and dash/tail lights. Down is off

Anyone have any experience with Royal Purple Synthetic gear lube? It is a GL-5 spec but is not supposed to wear the components as non-synthetic GL-5's. It's about the same price as Redline but it is

To make a long story short, I didn't check closely enough before I had the machine shop work done on a cylinder head and now realize I have 1.5 inch intake ports on the head and 1.625 inch ports on t
