Re: Modeltec magazine - full listing of issues

There used to be one on DLS... Then it went missing. I poked around and found it on the IBLS WIKI... But that is incomplete. But I have a general list of issues on my phone so I can keep an eye out when certain issues come across my hands... and buy or pass on. I'm focused on the T12 issues right no...

Re: Suspension problems

I'm following this thread so that I can learn about suspension as I go. I have a new-to-me atlantic and I'm not sure how much it ran before I got it. As such I may need to make adjustments also.

Re: injector?

If you think about it, the bore of the tailpipes is about a 1/4" square (I'm using a generalization since I typically use a 1/4" ratchet extension to install these things). That's about 1/16 sq inches of area. 3/8" NPT would be about 0.300 in^2. I think you'll be fine with 1/4" NPT fittings or even ...

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard

Perhaps a credit to the WF&P would be ideal. After all, the members of WF&P came up with this standard a long time ago.

Re: Little engines 1" line of engines

I can attest to Jim's experience. Many times have I had to go out to the floor to very explicitly explain to the cleaning team members where I work how to properly clean these castings.
