Re: 1946 Lincoln voltage regulator

You might want to see if you can find an "old school" auto electric shop in your area. I took the generator and regulator from my '46 Coupe to one near where I live, for rebuild of the generator,...

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

Auto Stud. Be careful poking around in the sender, as others have cautioned. When I was repairing mine, I somehow lost the little insulating button that is at the end of the copper arm where it...

Ford designed the gauge system to be “failsafe”. When the power is off the fuel reads E, the oil reads 0 and the temp goes to full H. Maybe you need an 80 psi oil sender? Agree with Jay, maybe 8V...

Re: crash

Brian. I don't know what insurance companies are like in NZ, but here in Canada, they always try to deny or save themselves as much money as they can. I have had a few occasions where I avidly...

Re: Install radiator hardware?

I used a specialist to help me get the lower radiator bolts in my 46 Coupe, one of my grandsons. They have small hands, good eye sight, can squirm up under the dash, and are a lot quicker at getting...

Re: Bench test Vacuum on fuel pump

Anthony. Ford38 was referring to clocking the top of the pump assembly, by removing the six screws that hold the top of the pump on, which will give 1/6 of a turn with each hole lineup.

Re: Bench test Vacuum on fuel pump

Anthony. Never, ass u me anything. I could be wrong, but applying vacuum to the outlet with the inlet plugged, will show if the diaphragm is leaking if the reading is not steady. Applying vacuum...

Re: Signal-stat 900 turn signal on positive ground

FourtyNiner. The indicator light quit working on mine after a while, so I opened the switch body to see if I could change the bulb. What I found was the wire that is connected to the indicator...

Re: Signal-stat 900 turn signal on positive ground

I have a 5007R in my '46 Coupe when I bought it, and the indicator didn't work. A bit of troubleshooting, and reading posts on this site and the EFV8 site, led me to the problem. A previous owner...

Re: New fangled water pumps

I installed a pair of Denis Carpenter pumps on my '46, 59AB, a couple of years ago. They are performing well, no leaks and good temperatures. The impeller design is of the "closed" design, which is...

Re: Crab distributor coil images

Dean. Here is a pic of my '46, 59AB, showing the bracket mounted with two intake manifold bolts. The engine compartment looks a bit better after the cleanup. Yes, I know that the ignition wire...

Re: 47 Ford Headlights

Gar. Bullet connections should not be hot, unless there is a poor connection. I had to go through the connectors on my '46, to clean the bullet ends and clean and resize the female connectors. I...

Re: 46 crab dist tune/replace

I had Bubba do the distributor for my '46 "rabbit ear", and still working great after two seasons. It will save you a lot of bucks if you can get it done in Beamsville. Bubba does an excellent job...

Re: '40 Brake Bleeding

I turned drums, replaced shoes and wheel cylinders as well as the master cylinder. I'm getting fluid to each wheel, but will not bleed as they should. I will check the tabs out for sure.

Re: 1950 Ford Wiper

Re: Surging

In my experience, if the surge is a gentle slow/speed up symptom, it is typically a fuel issue. It the surge is quick and jerky, that is generally an ignition problem. The causes can be many, so...

Re: Magna flux tool
