Thanks for the replies. I'm going to give the D6EA's a try and see if that cleans up the stutter. If not, I'll probably fiddle with the jets a bit.

Yeah, I'd thought about only securing the tins with the bottom screws. However, The motor does not have heater boxes (header with J-tubes) and I also planned to add the industrial tin shields as well. ...

A question: Is it possible to install the lower cooling tins (sleds) and J-tube shields while the motor is in the car (1966 Type 1)? I know that the "recommended" way is to pull the motor. I ...

I want the dash on my car to remain stock appearing. If I get a late model switch, will the 1966 button fit it?

I will look for another flasher relay in the classifieds. I'm really curious though as to how the flashers worked when the car was 6volt.

Does anyone run Motul Classic 20w-50 in their motors? It seems to have good specs for flat tappet motors. The only drawback is that its expensive and I would have to order it on line. I recently bough ...
