Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Looks almost like a 32 intake that been adapted with some kind of aftermarket 2 carb setup mounted to it.
I really like the old speedparts made by people before you could buy them easily.

Re: No reverse BW R-10

If the lockout isnīt working it will freewheel when you try to reverse...so start by investigating if the OD lockout works.

Re: No reverse BW R-10

If i remember right there is a rod activated when reverse is engaged going back to the overdrive part locking it out.
If you pull the overdrive lockout cable does it reverse ?

Re: No reverse BW R-10

You arenīt missing the the overdrive lockout pieces...when you put reverse in they lockout the overdrive...if not there you get this kind of issue.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Fenton and Edmunds had a not so great spacing of their "regular" 2 carb intakes offenhauser still sells them that style...how bad is it in reality ??...i prefer them centered.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

They donīt have the generator mount (big stud) only the fan mount (2 threaded holes)
and are offset more forward to take only the fan.

Re: Marsden nuts

The idea is that when you tighten them they deform from the threads pulling down on the inside and the mounting surface pushing up on the outside making the slotted part go inwards and lock.

The u-shaped piece of flatiron is to adapt mercury waterpumps to fit in a ford...and not a special type of motormount itself.

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

So my memory about resistance for leds are 12v...a 21w bulb on 6v draws in the 3a range...so we are talking a big resistor in 2-5ohm range to make it work on 6v.
And power resistors that big arenīt...

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

High resistance to me means a higher ohm value...and less load.
The usual led resistors are in the 33-47ohm range if i remember tight...donīt take my word for it...

Re: 39 or 40 truck motor

Staying with an -48 engine will give you less trouble with pulley to frame clearance and more options for mounting the fan to the engine.

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

40cpe is right the resistance of the relay coils is to high to let the flasher work properly...same happens when using LED bulbs.
Adding resistors used for ledīs will fix it if you donīt want some...
