Re: Correct instrument colours/faces

Checking frame and engine serial numbers of your k1 in the parts manual you could at least find the original country it was shipped to and go from there. Being that your official speed limit is 70mph and that started in 1967 or so maybe it came with the red mark. Speedometers where changed in the st...

the problem I have with that form, is it does not preselect the representative for your state.
and I don't know who to send it to.
Send it To Jim Inhofe US State senator from the Great state of Oklahoma. One of the biggest fighters of epa and ethanol.

Re: Headlight failure at night

Re: Going naked

This is frequently done and if you are not worried about a little static in you radios you should be good to go. Just realized that you didn't go the dodge neon route on the coils from the salvage,that's a alternate for next time.

I've only used them once, so far, but I had good luck at Babbitt's when I needed parts. Their pricing seems competitive, and shipping was quick.
Wish they went back further than 2005.
Just at Babbits and they went back to 1977 on Honda for parts, were you looking for something specific?
