      The 4 mounting holes were about 15/16". Using a 1" step bit I made them pretty round. I had the local machine shop make me 4 bushings instead of stacking up washers. A couple of hours and $60 later...

      Don't get me wrong. Whatever works for you. I'm just saying that LED, especially anything that's not a major brand doesn't have the life of a major player's product.

      I have approximately 100...

      Is that a floor drain in the center of the concrete patch? That's not allowed in most codes that I know of.

      I'm not impressed with LED pole lighting, either, from a reliability standpoint. Also, instead of a single lamp you have hundreds of LEDs to go bad coupled with the fact the the arrays are fixture...

      I own a lighting service business and am finding that LED is nowhere near as reliable or long lived as they claim. The Feit products are crap. You get what you pay for.

      Unless you're using LED all day long there no real payback for the large upfront cost. LED light quality isn't any better than fluorescent.

      Linear fluorescent is best for a low-ceiling working garage, recessed for a showplace.

      It's not a problem for someone like me that keep cars forever, but like the game "telephone" the information about mileage will change with successive owners, and that's not really right.

      The banker in Hawaii I bought our '55 from insisted that the only way to properly represent a car is to keep the original mileage. If you were literally building a car with NOS parts it might be OK,...

      There is no provision for greasing. Maybe this is another oil lube spot. However, I would have thought it would have been a shoulder bolt if they wanted it to...

      OK, mystery solved. Since there is no access to remove the bolt on the front of the differential while in the car I'm thinking it's a skid pad and not a mount. This was confirmed this morning when I...

      This is my thought. I don't thing it's mount as much as it's a pad that would prevent the nose of the differential from wanting to torque downward on acceleration. This would lessen the load on the...

      I think I have it figured out. On the exploded view you can see the stepped washer. I think, in reality, they drew it that way, but it goes on the other way, where the stepped portion goes into the...

      This is interesting timing as I believe I read that Paris is about to ban old cars in the city center. I can't say as I blame them as many are gross polluters and they take up so much space.
