When I bought the new "Firestone" 6:00 - 16 tires for my '46 from Universal in Hershey, the Tech that mounted them suggested Simple Green was the best. I have used it with a stiff natural bristle...

Re: Airtex E8902

I got mine from Summit, and the kit is just like the petehoovie picture. My 46 is stock using the mechanical pump. I only use the electric pump to “prime” if the car has sat for a week or so, so I...

Re: Fan oil

30-9. I would suggest that you remove the fan assembly and dismantle it to get rid of the old oil and clean it up. You have no way of draining the old oil without tearing it down. You will need two...

Re: 1946 Mercury/Ford Dash Light Switch Removal.

Super. Would a bad dash light dimmer switch cause the tail lights to not work? I had to repair mine because the dash lights didn't work, but it didn't affect the tail lights.

Re: 1946 Mercury/Ford Dash Light Switch Removal.

Phil. Best thing to do is get your volt meter and start checking various connections to determine if the problem is the light switch. Assuming your Merc is similar/same as my 46 Ford, and the light...

Re: 1953 239 flat head

Re: Carb Deterioration

Re: Fuel Level Gauge Problem

I finally got the sender working correctly, if even temporarily. First, the fluid in the plastic float. I could not get any fluid out of it, no matter how hard I squeezed, so I drilled a .020" hole...

Re: Leaking transmission 47 monarch

Re: Fuel Level Gauge Problem

I forgot to ask the orientation of the sender arm when installed. I assume it would be sideways in the tank?

Re: Clock Repair on the '47

Re: Identifying carburetors

Re: Converting 1940 Ford backing plates to self-energizing brakes

I did front and rear on my '46. I had to do a bit of grinding on the front spindle castings to get the backing plate to seat. Other than that, all went well. The kits are available from Speedway...

Re: installation of 12V fuel pump on 39 Ford

Re: Adding an electric fuel pump

I would suggest that you take a look at an Airtex pump. They are a flow through design, and come in 6 or 12 volt with a variety of pressures so you wont need a pressure regulator. I have one on my...
