Re: red liquid fuel gauge?

I would use a bead of 1/8" OD.

This is just an example since I doubt the Coral would withstand the acid.

Re: red liquid fuel gauge?

"Do you know the inside diameter of the glass fuel gauge?"


I just measured the ID on an old broken gauge I have and then checked it with a drill bit. ID is 9/64"

Re: red liquid fuel gauge?

Good idea Brian. A small glass bead would work, not sure about plastics.

Re: red liquid fuel gauge?

I’ve bought from them several years ago but when I checked this year, I couldn’t find it on their site which was easily located when I bought it before.

Re: 1940 ford brakes

You have the inner bearings hidden like others have mentioned. Without the inners, the wheels would just flop around and no way could you drive it without them.

Re: Trouble logging onto the Barn

Oh well, job for tomorrow. I tried checking and unchecking the remember me box.

I have a hunch that Microsoft changed a security selection which I’m unable to find so far.

Thanks 51 Mercury

Trouble logging onto the Barn

Anyone else having trouble logging in to the Barn?

I did a Windows 10 update a few days ago and trouble with the Barn and at least one other site. My iPhone 7, no trouble.
