Re: 1947 back up light switch bracket

Where did you mount the camera, and more importantly, the screen?

Re: seat belt installation 40 Merc

Mount the short side nearest the door. They're not long enough to dangle.

It's opposite to modern cars but you'll get used to it.

Re: 1941 Ford dash light dimmer switch

Ford for 41 had the new 'what the heck is going on?' (Tm) gage cluster. I'm pretty sure there is literature around some place.

I have white needles faded to ivory/grey. Mine can't get much more...

Re: 1940 convertible top care and operation

Watch how the latches sit against the top when lowered. The centre one can wear a hole into the top if incorrectly positioned when down.

This happened to the previous owner of my 41. Might not be...

Re: 1947 side loader trans seal replacement

I replaced the trans seals on my 41 with the box in the car, but I took the side plate off.
Space is very tight, but you can manage if you slide the pedal shaft to the side.
I think those pins are...

Re: Dash lights 40 deluxe.....

As others have said, bypass the switch. Check both globes as well. They earth through the base so they won't work when you pull them out.

Re: 1940 Ford Deluxe Voltmeter for 12 Volts

I think I see your point. If your 12V system drops to say 10V, the 6V meter will 'see' 4V.

Dropping to 8V, the 6V meter will 'see' 2V. Not exactly linear indication. More like a good/bad...

Re: Another turn signal question...need advice from electrical guru

Are you running LED brake lights by any chance? If you have LED brake lights, swap 'em back and see if the flash rate slows.

Re: 1940 Ford Deluxe Voltmeter for 12 Volts

Apols for digging up an old thread, but I have to ask: why can't you use an isolated solid state converter for the voltmeter?

My understanding is the solid state units simply provide a consistent...

Re: Removing the hands on a 46-48 clock

Place a piece of cling wrap or clear plastic over the hands before prying off, so they don't go flying across the room if they pop off.

Re: RIP- Stacey Brown - Antique Auto Supply

RIP. I can recall the first time I went there. He just let me roam the shelves unattended.

Re: CD players look yuck so.... bluetooth!

^^^^Interesting. Can it play music from the Micro SD in random order?

I prefer not to fill my phone with music, so the SD card option is appealing.
