Re: 1954 Mercury Monterey Fuses

Believe it or not, the owner's manual (not the shop manual) has a comprehensive fuse and bulb chart! See the attached image. The barn forum limits the size of images. I can send a higher-rez image if...

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

My catalog, dated November 1953, lists only 1 distributor part number FAE 12127-C. I guess I need to get a later catalog.

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

So the S symbol next to the gear part number means I need to replace the shaft too? Wonder why?

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

I've also discovered, with the help of a micrometer, that the gear I just took off the shaft is not the right size. Someone must have just used a 14 tooth gear that was close in size to the original....

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

Thanks for posting those photos of your catalog. What does the S symbol in front of the gear part number mean? Does it happen to mean it is a correction from the previous catalog?

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

Here's the catalog I'm using. It an original print. Looks like there was a misprint in the original 1954 MERCURY CHASSIS PARTS CATALOG. Ugh! Thanks for posting the corrected spec in the 54-55 catalog.

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

I'm assuming the current cam gear must also have 14 teeth, as the car was running fine before I pulled the distributor. I'm just trying to figure out why the difference in teeth from the parts manual...

Re: 1954 Mercury Distributor Puzzle

Here's a photo down the dizzy hole. I don't see any damage but I can't see all the way around the cam gear (and don't want to move it till I get the distributor reengaged). The car is an 'early' 54...

Hi guys. I'm trying to sort out the distributor on my '54 Mercury Monterey. The car was running fine prior to pulling it for a rebuild. The first thing I noticed was a broken tooth on the drive gear....

Re: Y block Mercury engine color?

I just got off the phone with the 'experts' at Eastwood. They were of zero help and didn't have a clue where I might find the correct green for the '54 Mercury Y block. Oh well.

Re: Y block Mercury engine color?

KULTULZ, what color green is the darker green on the '54 block? I got the light green from Hirsch, but can't find the darker green anywhere. Thanks, John

Re: Oil dipstick boss

Nice! Tack the plate to the inside of the pan and you'll never have to drop it again for future bracket issues. Wish I knew about it when I did mine.

Re: Oil dipstick boss

One caution. The holes in the bracket I got did not line up with the holes in my oil pan. I elected to drill a new hole in the bracket that lined up with the existing pan holes. You obviously need to...
