Re: 35 Ford Columbia Speedometer?

Re: Industria Argentina

I've been fooling around with a gas gauge sender that has no markings at all. Is there a way to identify a oem sender; ie. KS vs. an Argentina made sender?

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

Maybe a bad, or just dirty ignition switch. I had that problem with my '39 and I had to rebuild the switch.
