    Re: Carbs - Solex PHH 44

    That’s really strange. My tags are E 14584/1 and E 14584/2. The last number designates proper placement of carburetors 1 and 2. My boxes have those two numbers marked on them. Makes no sense why...

    Ramon,

    This is a set of NOS that are waiting patiently for me to install on my 1958. Notice the color/brilliance of the metal.

    Roland,

    How many of your carburetors had the stainless number tag as in the below photograph? John Lewenauer and I have discussed the tags previously. It appears that they were not present on the...

    Re: Water bag windshield washer

    Martin,

    Still special having a 55. I’ve always liked the early tail lights better than those on my 58. Yours fit the design of the fender better. Also the seats are very cool, more sporty. You’ll...

    You are correct in that each of the gauges are mounted with two of the nuts shown in your photo. Years ago I also found a couple of the nuts trapped under the seats. It is my assumption...
