    Re: Richmond VA 1960 Bugeye Bringing Miss Eva back to life.

    I have been tied up on another project so I am ready to get back on Miss Eva.

    Using the Speed Hut Gauges the Water Temperature sending unit would not screw into the Whitworth Threads in the Cylinder Head or Cross Flow Radiator.
    I was able to get the adapter from Moss that is suggested to be used instead of screwing it directly into the head.

    We were able to tap the adapter since the standard threads were very close to the Whitworth. The Tap was not able to go in as deep as I would have liked; however, with the low pressure it should hold the sending unit without leaking.

    I installed a Oil Filter Spin On Conversion Kit. I finally broke down and bought the kit as I could never locate the Oil Pipe to the spin on Filter Head I found.

    I am still working out the brass fittings for the Mechanical Oil Pressure Gauge for under the Bonnet and the electric Oil Pressure sending unit for the Dash.

    SS Exhaust Installation

    I used the Falcon SS Exhaust from England.

    I used hangers and U bolt exhaust clamps from an Auto Parts Store to complete the system.
    The Rubber Washers from Moss and the distance tube for the Muffler made for a neat installation.
