    If this system works to your expectations, I would think that a version made out of (shiney) copper pipe and fittings would be more of a "period" type of instalation!

    " --- the only giveaway that it's not all original is the routing of the water temp capillary."

    I've often wondered what the "correct" route is for the water temp capillary.

    On my '73 midget, it was just routed from the head, under the HT leads, collected in a big coil beside the heater blower box, and shoved through the bulkhead. It didn't look right to me, and anyway it was broken....
