Re: No Thermostats

I have 180 stats in my '46 Coupe, 59AB, and it runs at 180 pretty much steady, and warms up quickly. In reading some posts, I found my fan is a six blade, rather than the standard four blade, which...

Re: Gas gauge quit

Clem. I'm not familiar with a '40, but if it is the same fuel gauge system as my '46 coupe, I might be able to add some info. My fuel gauge was not reading full when the tank was full. One thing...

Re: Fan Hub

Fred. You are correct, there is no seal in the hub. The groves in the shaft and the direction of rotation keeps the oil in the hub. That is why the correct level is important in preventing a rust...

Re: Fan Hub

I drain the fan hub on my 59AB at the 6 o’clock position, as there is a “stand pipe” in the hub that sets the correct level. I think a drain at 3 o’clock would leave too much oil in the hub,...

Re: changing float and float lever rod on King Seely fuel sender

I did the cut/solder thing when I replaced the arm on the sender for my '46 Coupe. Pre-tinned as suggested above, wrapped with small copper wire, then soldered. It is important that the float arm...

Re: Up to Date Info on a 6 Volt Fuel Pump?

I did a fuel pressure test with the 6 volt Airtex on my Ď46, and it puts out 3 psi. That was done using a high quality 0-5 psi gauge, so no pressure regulator needed.

Re: Electric Windshield Wiper Motor Needed

Re: 1947 Super Deluxe ignition Switch

I did the same as fordor41, on my '46 Coupe, except I soldered the "ears" on the outer edges, just enough to hold the case together. Make sure the lever and switch are in the correct position to...

Re: Anyone running a quiet 6v electric fuel pump?

I have an Airtex 6v pump on my '46 Coupe, 59AB, that I use for "priming" if the car has sat for several weeks. The pump is very quiet, as Fritz says. I turn it off when I hear the sound change,...
