Put a S10 T5 in my 66 C10 on Saturday. I modified the shifter yesterday. I'm having the driveshaft modified today. I hope to have it together by the weekend for a test drive.

Put newly rebuilt model "B" on 54-3100. perfect. Runs but back fires. about 1/2 gallon of white gas on barn floor. Glass fuel bowl gasket bad. Would this cause the backfire? Hotrodlincoln, tc, Carbking etc. Doc. PS white gas does not grow on trees. Some of our WAWA and Shell stations are starting to sell. Our Stihl dealers here will not warranty any of their new products if gasoline with ethyl is used. About time.

Housekeeping (Moderator) Making a Stovebolt Bed & Paint and Body Shop Forums
Last couple of days have been spent fitting and welding right side inner, outer and inner-to-outer cowl panels. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel on the cab. After these are completed, I need to weld in the gas tank supports. Then need to primer and coat the floor of the cab and get it off the rotisserie and on to a pallet with casters.

Ed, yes. If any brand of gasoline has ethyl, methyl or any alcohol additive Stihl will not warranty their products in two of their dealerships here. Ed

Some Toro mower dealers tell you the same (they are wrong - up to 10% is allowed). But, they do state that you have to run their mowers until they gas is gone (on many of their mowers).

No more Toros's for me (I sold the three that I had).
