Re: Vredestein appears to be offering tires in 13" sizes

I put the Maxxis on mine before Helen show. Over 300 miles on curvy roads. Handled and braked very well for the size.

Thanks

brake drums hitting

Just did the Oreillys route on my 66. Very happy with their cylinder rebuilt kits and shoes. Seem like they stop very well with reasonable pedal effort. If you need the parts they looked up correct on their website. Adjusted according to shop manual. Slightly tight fit and back off a turn and a litt...

Re: Maxxis 185/80 R13 tire out of production again?

Just got off the phone with my local tire guy.
He has 4 of the Maxxis coming Wednesday, $436 mounted and balance.

Yes, Virginia, 13" tires still do exist.

Thanks,

Mike

Re: 140HP Vapor Locking?

Have not verified which happens first. Before the stalling while idling for a while it was a dropout when starting off from a light when hot and running for quite a while. Hard to troubleshoot that one in the turn lane or at the redlight, LOL.

Re: 140HP Vapor Locking?

Mike, Typically with vapor lock you would have a situation where the engine will not restart when hot. You say it "drops out". Do you mean it starts idling low and possibly rough? If so, it could be a plugged idle jet which can cause that. It can happen to one carburetor and cause the engine to run...
