Is this where was say "Size doesn't matter"?
 
Actually mike, the lines I use you can shape in your hands.  Brake lines are so easy to do. . .
 
If you were copying a line, you tape one end together and just keep bending.  Every so often you tape again.  Use a coupler to join the next piece if needed.  NEVER use a compression fitting.  At tge end, you need to cut and flair as needed.
 
To do it really right, you should have a double flairing tool and tubing cutter

Any suggestions for the easiest way to work with the distributor holddown bolt?  Between the vacuum advance, the coil, the bulkhead, the oil pressure switch, and the heater hoses, it is almost impossible to get a wrench in there. 
 
There are special distributor wrenches available, but usually don't work well.  I loosen it with a short 1/2 box wrench, and then use a 3/8 drive swivel socket and a long extension.  Ofcoarse, the advance will be right where you don't want it.  But that works for me.  Actually, I use a 1/4" drive set now.  I found the thinner shaft works better, and you can tighten the dist plenty.
 
Just a note on that, once you have that socket in place. .  .don't take it off until you set the disty bolt.  You'll hate yourself

I cured that with a set of European lamps which bolt right in.  But you need to modify your wiring and cut in a relay
 
Madd Industries is where I got mine.   Leaburn may have seen them in the dark. . .   They take years off them tired old eyes.  I rarely use the High beams now.  I need sunglasses for that

My Shop wish list is a 80 X 80, two story heated building, 2 lifts, a CNC,  and a larger shear and brake/roller.  Paint booth or equal home grown.  Then I can space out and set everything up properly.  25 X 80 would have to be sealed off from the shop so I can work and park some cars.
 
Oh yeah, a new air compressor.  That poor thing doesn't owe me a dime.
 
But what Herman has will do.

I assume the engine is getting hot?  If not, maybe a thermostat is in order.  That gauge might just be a sending unit..  Simple enough
