Re: 39 ford

I don't have a copy of a 39 lube chart, but the 40 one should give you an idea of where to look and what to use.

Re: Electric short somewhere

This is how I read the wiring diagram. Might start by disconnecting the input to the light switch that comes from the fuse on the CB panel. If that is OK, then remove the output of the light switch...

Re: Rear Main seal

VanPelt sells them, I would think he could help you out.

Re: 8BA fuel pump pushrod diameter

Scott, be sure to have the block pressure tested before investing in any machine work. Magnaflux may not find all the possible cracks, the block needs to be pressure tested.

Re: Electric short somewhere

On the wiring diagram it looks like the tail lights and the gauge lights are two separate wires. Might try taking them loose and then touch one at a time back to the fuse and see if you can isolate...

Re: 33 ford gas gauge

Might consider starting a new thread on the shock question, a lot of people scan the titles for topics they are interested in.

Re: Timing light

What Hoop said, I was considering mapping out the advance curve. If you don't care about that or total advance you really don't need it. And then on a pre 8ba you don't need a timing light at all...

Re: Timing light

Yep, that would be dial back! :) Unless you have a pully that is marked off in degrees it makes it a lot easier.

Re: Flame thrower coil

Then just connect it up directly (no resistor). Power from the ignition switch to the (-) terminal on the coil and the (+) terminal to the distributor.

Really need a deal back one, but no idea if any of them work on 6v.

Re: Temperature gauge assembly

Problem is "Available" on their online page does not mean they are available. Just went through that. They do not update their site, so you would have to call.

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

Not sure if they will mix or not, my guess would be not. It would be best to get as much of any other lube out, don't think anyone has reported an issue of incompatibility.

Re: 12v conversion 59a starter solenoid 4 pole. 46 Mercury.

If your starter engages when you short out the starter button terminal on the solenoid, then it should be the same thing when wired to the button on the dash. All the button is, is a connection to...

Re: 12v conversion 59a starter solenoid 4 pole. 46 Mercury.

Ya, but that is just a wiring issue between the button and the solenoid if shorting the terminal on it activates it. The starter button is just a remote ground path.

This looks like it should...

Re: Fuel gauge issue

The 1.5v comes from the Ford recommended test procedure and should give you a 1/2 scale reading on the guage.

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

The Corn Head grease. A steering gear is very similar to what it was designed/intended for.

Jack, I guess I may be wrong on the restrictors. I believe it was used on the 59ab engines with the fitting at the bellhousing and thought all of them had it. But, there have been several post...

Re: 12v conversion 59a starter solenoid 4 pole. 46 Mercury.

Unless you have something different connected up the ignition switch should have nothing to do with the solenoid you installed. The ignition switch input should be hot all the time and connected to...

Re: Fuel gauge issue

9v is a little severe, the normal test is with a 1 1/2 volt D cell.
