Re: Decided against turn signals.....what about this idea?

What is not to like about turn signals ? You don't like the switch ?

There is no need to change or add anything to the outside of the vehicle.

Re: starter amps

Re: At What Age Do You Give It Up?

Re: starter amps

It depends on the type he is trying to use. I have one that works on DC. I bought it specifically for testing starters on a vehicle.

Re: Steering end play

Like J mentioned, try adjusting it first.

Yours should a 2 tooth box which has 4 adjustments that need to be done in order. The best procedure is in the Service Bulletins.

Re: Stuck 1930 instrument light

Those pesky little gremlins ! You do have to keep them occupied to keep em around.

It doesn't seem like that lite should be an issue on such a low mileage vehicle.

Re: Demise of the Ford Tri-Motor

Pencil annuals ? Yep, they still happen all to frequently. Some folks seem to think they are worth it, I happen to think they are a huge waste of good money.
