Hint, check with a magnet. Answer: steel.I've decided to get the Hood Latch and it's brackets chromed. Is the hood latch bar aluminum or steel? I need to let the chrome know so he can give me a price.

As mentioned in that post, my hesitation went away when I changed the 38 DGAS emulsion tubes to F-66's. I am at sea level, but altitude should not affect the e-tubes job in that transition.
Ugh....this is how rumors get started.Consider the probable fix: Trimming a loop or two off of the acceleration/power valve spring in the top of the carb's lid. It's been said that EVERY Opeler could benefit from weakening that spring. Webers are preset to have that valve open at a vacuum range that is very close to what a typical Opel engine runs at. This causes extra gas to be injected at idle, which you DON'T want.
take a side cutters and keep cutting a coil off until you reach desired result. in my case it was way more full coils then i thought it would be. what cam you have though?
use a mity vac
