Re: Fog Light Switch Help

Re: Fog Light Switch Help

Ah, I see the 'light'. You have the larger ones, what Unity refers to as F-1 (or similar) series 6". I have the smaller H-1 Series 5".

The replacement fixture is definitely a no go.

Re: Fog Light Switch Help

Carl, Yes, it's all good. Looking at Amazon, I'm not sure the LED you linked too will fit my fog lights. I am using a couple of buckets for 5" Unity Spotlights so the shape matches my spot light and...

Re: Fog Light Switch Help

I will check those out. I prefer the look of the amber lenses tho when the lights are off instead of the clear lense.

Re: Briggs Town Sedan Door Sills

It appears the Murray has a different door sill than the Briggs. The Briggs definitely uses screws, the holes are countersunk.

JayJay, Thanks for the heads up on the finish washers at MAC's. The...

A while back I got a set of NORS door sills for my '30 Briggs Town Sedan at an extremely good price. (Bratton's wants $180 for them). The other day I started to install them and noticed the ones on...

Re: ammeter problems

Can't say I have ever seen "a quality off the shelf ammeter that will fit the same opening"... If you know of one, please let us know.

Re: Grab handle

I certainly wish you were right!! It would give me less heartburn if I didn't have to drill holes. But I do need something to help the CEO to get in.

Re: Grab handle

The upper one appears to be half way between the dash rail mounting screws. My dash rail does not have a screw where the lower one is located.

Re: converting to 1970 v8 points for model a

Really? I find the opposite to be true.



Ford had a number of point designs between the Model A and the Y-Block.

Re: rear brake track how do you check it

Nice tool GeneBob. I enjoy seeing tools people make.

Look thru Bratton's printed or online catalog. They usually list what size reamer (among other measurements in their parts description). For example front spindle bushings "Ream to .813" - .8135.
