Re: 1950 f5 clutch

These trucks were 6V pos ground originally. Unless it has been converted to 12V probably burned up the solenoid. The starter can take 12V ok.

Re: Help with painting - still practicing

Sounds like you may not have put on enough primer over the body filler as it will absorb the primer. A sealer would be used before spraying the color coat if there are old layers of paint and...
