Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

That's what's so frustrating. I've had two different carbs on the workbench numerous times and neither have ever shown evidence of leaking. And yet, at least one third of the float bowl fuel...

Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

I have read and reread the installation/operation instructions for my Airtex E8902 electric fuel pump dozens of times and nowhere does it mention reversing the -/+ wire connections to accommodate a 6...

Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

Airtex E8902 Debacle Update #3. I woke up this morning thinking that my Ford has a 6 volt positive ground electrical system. I bet if I were to reverse the polarity on the ground and power wires that...

Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

Airtex E8902 Debacle Update #2. This is exactly what I woke up this morning thinking. In testing the pump yesterday it operated backwards, so my plan this morning is to reverse the wiring connections...

Re: Airtex E8902 Debacle

Airtex E8905 Debacle update #1. Took the fuel pump out from under the car to test if it was sucking and pushing properly. Had the inlet (fuel filter end) hose in a container of fuel (representing...

Re: DEAD: 1948 Super Deluxe 8 Sedan

My car ('48 Ford Tudor SD) ran great the first year or so that I had it, and then it began having the same issues as yours. I chased the gremlin(s) for months, installing rebuild kits, replacing this...

Re: 42 Ford Running Board Covers

I wouldn't think so as long as you use an ample amount of rubber adhesive. The ones that I made for my '48 are basically inserts that fit between the frame and the outside metal edges. When the doors...

Re: 42 Ford Running Board Covers

I did not want to spend close to $200 with any of the venders for two running board mats for my '48 Tudor Super Deluxe, so I sourced the rubber myself and made a killer pair for less than $55. I...
