Re: Battery Cable Size

Re: Battery Cable Size

I use the heaviest cables I can find on all my vehicles. Heat is an enemy of electricity and it's hot as hell under a Toro hood. Thicker cables handle electricity better.

Re: Multipoint EFI for my 1969 Restomod.

Re: Paint Identification

My experience with GM paint names is that if the color has metallic in it, it will say for example, Camelot Grey metallic or Camelot Grey iridescent depending on the paint manufacturer. Look for picture of 67 Toros and see if they're metallic. This one sure doesn't look like it to me. https://www.co...

Re: octane for 425

Yes. The modern AKI octane rating is just an average of RON and MON. The seemingly higher octane ratings of the 60s are really about the same as today's octane ratings when calculated using the same formulas. Premium today is fine for the 425. If your car pings on 93, retard the timing slightly - as...
