Re: 40 turn signal options??

Ken you are right.I will have to say in the day time those chevron lights on a 40 are useless for brake lights.

Re: Radiator Cap

I did not realize a 1940 required a non pressure cap.I have been running a 4# for years.What would be the chances of it running cooler with a non pressure cap?Who sells the best non pressure cap?

Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

I am afraid to do the jumper might create other issues.With headlights on at the breaker I have 6 volts coming in and 4.74 volts out if I am checking correctly?

Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

Is there a way to tell if switch is original?How do you clean the switch?The switch kinda looks like it has been taken apart before because of markings on tabs!

Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

Tom this is what I am using.I still have the old I think original switch.To me it looks like it has to be the switch because I am not getting 6 volt to dimmer switch?
