Still blowing Bulbs on the Flathead after adjusting the relay with scientific Precision ,still driving like Mr Lucas did, No Lights , looks like its gonna be one of those state of the art digital units hiding under the relay cover , unless someone has some secret information they are willing to share in how to keep your 6 volt bulbs from looking like the children of the Damned Eyes did back in 63 !!
Not often you bump into one of the Famous or Infamous DeLorean Stainless Steel creations which saw the Light of day Back in 1975 with only 9000 cars built, This one was outside a cheapo hardware store in Gothenburg the other day , seeing this got me thinking about the classic driving gloves worn by the chappies that drive these stainless steel gull wing cars & the type of gloves we wear running our old Knuckleheads & Pans, thankfully worlds apart.......
This Little Tech Tip should give you at least
60% better braking power
Bendy Bendy time
Now they are all the same Radius
Brakes or lack of them on the wonderful kamikaze springer mechanical brake , 80% of the time they just don't get the job done , at best they just slow you down a bit , try this little trick i done after changing about every part available to man and still no brakes , i checked the OEM shoes against the aftermarket shoes & found them to have a different radius , just put them in the jaws of the vice , if you have a vice with Mick Jagger Jaws you can squeeze the shoes tighter otherwise just use a pipe or Rio bar bender to get the right radius like i did , if you haven't got any OEM Shoes as a template you can lay them in the drum, until you see that they follow the curvature of the drum, all that's needed is around a 2 cm tighter radius . man what a difference !!
