Re: Starter solenoid on the way out?

I think the redundant solenoid is the one on the bulkhead, I.e. it has been disabled and the one on the starter motor is the one being used. I have a gear reduction starter (Izusu) I installed and went the other way, disabled the solenoid on the starter and use the one on the bulkhead. The tell is T...

Re: Bakelite/plastic cleaner

You’re welcome, Seth. BTW, I noticed the red horn push crazing, and I have read that soaking it over night in olive oil will make the cracks almost disappear.

Re: Traveller rear number plate backing plate

I looked at my plate on my Trav and it has the curved edges just like the one in the picture. The center section of the bumper mounting bar is bent outwards in the middle. So the curved edges of the plate fit as the plate is longer than this bend area allowing it to be fixed tightly to the bar.

Re: testing fuel pumo

Take the line off the fuel pump that leads to the carb. Put a rag to cover the opening. Turn on ignition for two seconds then off, and the rag should be soaked in fuel if the pump is good.
