Re: 1950 f1 dash gauge and dash light current draws

Thanks 3twinridges. I thought that's how they came out but I was reluctant to pull/rock them any harder in case I caused a dent or other damage to the cluster metal. I couldn't detect any give at...

Re: 1950 f1 dash gauge and dash light current draws

Thanks for your response JSEERY. I've enjoyed reading your insights on many threads. I have measured the filament resistance on some bulbs and it appears the bulbs would draw too much current to...

Re: 1950 f1 dash gauge and dash light current draws

I noticed after I submitted this thread that in the title I asked about the current that is drawn by a type 55 six volt bulb. I am interested because I probably can power the dash lights from the...

1950 f1 dash gauge and dash light current draws

I am ready to change the the bulbs for my 1950 f1 to 12 volt bulbs. Most replacements are relatively straight forward since I have separate turn signal lamps wired front and back by a previous...

Re: oil pressure tank

Thanks Cadillac512. I was thinking the same thing. I borrow the pressure tank from a local machine shop and it usually has several "fittings" with it for different blocks. The only thing I'll need...

oil pressure tank

I am going to inject oil into the engine in my '50 f1 using a pressure tank before I work on getting it road worthy this winter. This engine has sat w/o being turned over for a number of years. I...

I have the fenders off my 1950 f1 for soda blasting in preparation for metal restoration. I have been toying with the idea of coating the insides of the fenders with undercoating/sound deadener...

Re: USPS Rate increases

Flatford39 made the comment but let me expand on it a bit. Most of us wouldn't know that Congress is making a concerted effort to privatize the USPS by making it appear unprofitable. A few years...

fender welting 1950 f-1

I have removed the fenders (all four) from my 1950 f-1 to make rust repairs. I noticed a recent thread about welting on a 1937 vehicle. I knew a previous owner of my vehicle had used caulk where...

Re: 1950 F1 Exhaust Question

I believe the spacers were cut out of 5/8 inch aluminum plate. I supplied them with a gasket as a pattern. I used gaskets on both sides of the spacers. I did need to replace the stock studs in the...

Re: 1950 F1 Exhaust Question

I had exactly the same problem with cross-over pipes from Obsolete Ford Parts in Oklahoma city. My solution was having aluminum spacers made to bolt to the exhaust manifolds which gave me about an...

Re: Wiring 6 volt horns

Jseery's reply with wiring diagram was great. I was not familiar with this era of horns. The fact that these horn bodies are insulated from ground would seem to make it even simpler to put in...

Re: Wiring 6 volt horns

Just my two cents worth, but my impression is that you have two horns since your post stated "horns". Aren't these normally wired in parallel? In other words six volts is applied to each horn when...

Re: using pressurized oil pot

Thanks Ken/Alabama. Do you mean the Bendix could be engaged with the ring gear teeth and that could be keeping the engine from being turned? Wouldn't have thought that but I'll remove the starter...

Re: using pressurized oil pot

Thanks for the reply 40cpe. No, it doesn't seem to rock either direction. I have never used MMO but will try it if the pressure pot doesn't help the situation. In my defense I have regularly...

Re: ford transmission instead of S10 T5

crossover pipe clearance

Hi, when I bolted in the cross over pipes for my truck flathead the clearance to the oilpan was so close that the 1 and 3/4 inch pipe clamp couldn't be put into place. At first I thought I would...

Hi, FordBarners. My project is a '50 f1. I would like to use the 7RT carb that came with the truck but the fuel inlet threads are so buggered that only a couple of threads will catch. Can I take...
