    Thanks Mario! Not much needed at this point, but I see things I would have bought from them had I not already gotten them.

    In my continued effort to make the '39 a cruiser that I can take long drives with, I installed a 12 v. cigarette outlet. Maybe they call them something different today? But I had existing holes in the inset below my toggle switches, so I purchased one with a black rubber cover so I can run a phone charger, GPS, or whatever I need to use this style receptacle. Lots of spare circuits with my 21 circuit fuse block, so might as well use them up!

    I like vacuum gauges! I tune most of my rides based on vacuum readings as they really tell what the engine and carbs are doing. I bought a vacuum gauge about 3 months ago, and then found a dash pod to put it in, but had to wait 2.5 months for it to be delivered!! From China of course, as I couldn't find any in my searches.
    I installed it yesterday and fired the '39 up to check engine vacuum. To my surprise (and shock) my engine is producing almost 20 inches of vacuum! It drops to 10" revving the engine, but that's normal. Never dreamed the big Howards cam would put out so much vacuum! I avoided using a power brake booster, as I figured it wouldn't work. Now I may reconsider that thinking, and maybe consider adding one in the future.

    Steve that sounds like a good idea. I’m wondering though. The last time I put a T in a vacuum line I got a pulse in my Holley that I wasn’t aware of. Carb was bleeding down at an idle like a high float level. I replaced the carb and still had a bleed down and found out it was a vacuum line T causing the issue. Since then I swore to never do that again.
    have you ever experienced that situation?

    Doesn't the vacuum secondary balance kit basically do the same thing? Whenever I've run dual carbs that have vacuum secondaries I've installed the balance kit, which syncs the two carbs together, and not had any issue.

    The Big Mutha Thumpr cam I had in my Falcon produced very low vacuum for my BBC. It idled around 10", and rarely got above about 13 in. even when I was decelerating. It's one reason I went with the Howards roller Rattler cam when I did this engine.
