Re: Holley 4V carb........

What tubman says. Don't plug both the oil fill and road tube holes on that intake if you intend to use it as is. On my 40 coupe I have a 32-48 style 4bbl intake that has the stock fuel stand studs...

Re: 41 ford car stock gas tank sending unit - recommendation

Re: 39 ford woodie

Next would be checking the connections (including the plate that is built into the wiring harness) at the switch at the bottom of the steering column. The switch itself could be worn out. Same...

Re: Kingpin bushing driver

Wait until you have the new bushing. If you have a metal lathe, this shouldn't be a problem, make a driver slightly smaller than the OD of the bushing and step it down to fit snug the length of the...
