    Electrical: Avanti tach doesn't read above 2000rpm

    Well, what did I do wrong?

    I'll weigh in on this.

    Some cars are indeed, too rare or valuable to warrant risking them to the world we have to endure. Most (such as mine), are neither rare nor particularly valuable. As...

    That's a rather unusual colour in this day...and probably why it looks so damn good!

    I went through 3 Pertronix in one year. Now I have points. It's not a big deal to install a fresh set of points every 10K mi.

    Printing hard parts, another step forward

    Here's another step forward in printing custom parts. The day of printed cylinder heads and manifolds is coming but at what price when they do become available?
