good engines.

Thanks cos! I'll do a little research. Didn't know there was so much out there.

I prefer top down but can't take heat like I once did. When it goes over 90, the top goes up.

That's just speculation. I have heard of them blowing up from
being over heated. The lead can flake off and short the plates.
