Re: Westach 6 volt tachometer

6V pos ground in a 1948 Dodge Power Wagon. I did connect the bulb. More accurate than my speedometer. Especially since the tac reading is 1/2 the speed in 4th gear, ie 2500RPM = 50mph

That view is of the passenger side and please double check me. My advancing age and dyslexia can confuse me. The top view photo shoes the side with the broken bolt is the passenger side. I never...

Re: 8BA fuel pump pushrod diameter

I didn't think the looseness would be a problem but we all know about "ASSUMING". The pushrod diameters measure about .430 and 7/16 is .4375. The defection back and forth is over .060 at the top of...

Re: 8BA fuel pump pushrod diameter

I did notice that both rods measured the same and both seemed equally loose. That is without the fuel pump which holds the rod "straight"?

Re: Shout out to Kube and 35fordtn

Re: 8BA 12 V Starter?

Thanks for all the replies. I think I will first test the starter to make sure it works and then use it once the engine is rebuilt.(no timetable yet). If it works I will probably just keep using it...

8BA 12 V Starter?

I have 1952 Ford converted to 12Volts. I have read that the 6 Volt starter will work with 12V, but the gear will slam into the flywheel harder. New to Fords. Is there such a thing as a 12V starter...

Re: valid Temp Sending unit test?

I do remember reading that repair thread. If the sender I have is an original, I can try that. but not sure my skills at taking it apart and resealing are good enough. Is it an original type?
