Re: Adjustable throttle rod

After looking at Macs adjustable throttle rod I see how it is made. It should be easy enough to cut my NOS 18+ inch rod in two, thread it and use a threaded rod union to connect the two pieces back...

Adjustable throttle rod

I'm looking for a good straight adjustable throttle rod for what was it, 49-50 Ford truck? Yeah, there is one on ebay but threads don't look too swift. What do you have? (I need one for my 35 PU...

Re: upper radiator hoses

I believe you should use 180 thermostats. 160 is a little cool IMHO.

Re: 1939 Mercury Heater Question

To minimize the guessing at abbreviations and colloquialisms, the 39 Mercury uses the same heater as the 39 Ford. They're around, but not cheap.

Re: 1940 ford air cleaner clamp

Look for air cleaners on ebay. Find an el-cheapo one that fits diameter of your carb, buy it and then have them ship just the clamp.

Re: ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

Now I remember. I'm using 39 pedals so they won't accept the 35-36 brake light switch. When I get my brake light switch going again I'll post pictures of LEDs with Mart's cup cake liners.

I've seen them displayed on a plywood board that has been sealed with polyurethane. Looks nice.

Re: ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

That is the way I'm gonna mount mine. Makes a lotta sense. Now that I recall, I had one mounted diagonally like that on my 39 Mercury.

Re: ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

Hey Coop. Gotcha. My new Ron Francis switch doesn't have the "leg" on it. I may mount mine "sideways" or drill a hole in the lever and put a bolt through it. With all the help I now "see the light"...

Re: ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

Does the original switch mount to the wooden floorboard? If so, that's why I can't find any mounting holes as the wooden floorboard is new. I'll crawl back under it and smoke it over a little closer...

ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

I have gotten old and forgetful, and can't figure out just how an original brake light switch for 35-36 attaches and mates with the brake pedal. Can anyone 'splain it to me or perhaps post a picture....

Re: will this Tacho work on my Ford

Sorry this got off track.
To answer your question. If the tach is in good workable condition it will work.

Elementary, my dear Watson, elementary.

Re: will this Tacho work on my Ford

I do understand the short cut "Tranny, Carb", but did not understand "Dizzy"
until another member come up with "Dissy" which made better sense to me.
To Me: Dizzy = staggering, or falling down....

Re: Help Im Lost

Send your coil to Skip Haney in Florida to get it rebuilt better than new. He can furnish a proper condenser at the same time. About $80.00 plus the ride, but I'm not pricing his service by any means.

Re: Head gasket question

I'd use the lower one myself. Larger holes allow more water flow. I know, more flow less flow debate has been going on for eons. That debate probably was started by the engine designers before...

Re: Best choke for downdraft carb?

Best choke? Both hands, from the rear. That'd be the "best".

Re: hard start

It ain't gonna heat up MUCH in 1/2 mile "drive". Coil/condenser likely problem,
notwithstanding.

You might also consider installing an electric fuel pump to prime the pump.

All of these abbreviations of terms foreign to a flathead can be mind boggling at times, i.e. dizzy, carbie, tranny on ad infinitum. When you said tacho I thought at first you were referring to my...
