Re: Signal-stat 900 turn signal on positive ground

I’ve got a 900 series on my truck. Initially dismayed about the indicator light as it either didn’t work at all or they didn’t flash...... I can’t remember which. I changed out the original flasher...

Re: Very Firm Brake Pedal

I agree with the previous advice of adjusting the pedal rod.
It's also possible that dorvedahl47pu has dragging brakes due

Re: Very Firm Brake Pedal

out of the box. (and these weren't offshore items...

Re: How to compute HP

I haven't done one in awhile but a road dynamometer will give you the horsepower and rpm curve for an engine and is accurate to 2%.
You need a tachometer and speedometer and in the "olden days," a...

Re: ARP bolts

Re: ARP bolts

My comment is not really flathead oriented but there are definitely applications where the OE fastener was a POS design or under-sized. 289 Ford connecting rod bolts come to mind but there are...

If the same thread is used on 37-48 passenger sector shafts as on the 48 truck sector, it's 7/8-14. The Ford part # for that particular nut is 351153-S.

I'm guessing you're "talking" to me...... I haven't checked but I know where

I'm told the Prius circuit for that system uses a 50 amp fuse and the
recommended wire gauge is 10 (?) to support that circuit.

48-52 Truck Fan Pulley..... Update- No Longer Needed

I believe it's 21A-8603 Hub/Sheave Assembly.
I'm looking for basically what's in the photo, not the guts inside.
(i.e.: not the shaft/impeller or bearing deal)

Thanks.
