The best I remember the 1960 is a one of a kind. I remember never being able to find a new or reproduction, finally found a good used on. I think Number Dummy said the switch was also used in Falcons...

I can't imagine what would cause that. In all the years I have been using Ford engines I've only had one plug come loose and I'm sure it was my fault. Are you sure your torque wrench is reading...

There was a recent post, which I can't find now, about GE Nighthawks. I think they are LED and draw less current the our stock lights so no relays are needed.
I was excited as my old eyes aren't...

Yes, this would be the time to change it while everything is apart. But mentioned not wanting to keep the cost down. I re use coolant if it hasn't been in too long, just did that recently when I...
