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

The Airtex should be the one in the Macs catalogue and website. It’s where I bought mine.

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

I bought the one from Macs a few years ago. I believe it is the Airtex brand. It’s works good, and is quiet. When I turn it on, it’s just audible enough to know it’s there, but you can’t hear it at...

Re: Gas Tank for 40 Convertible Steel or Poly

I installed a steel tank from TANKS a few years ago. In my Ď41 pickup, I think the steel looked better, as it is very visible. It had cage nuts, fit was okÖ I had to round out one of the holes in the...

Re: crab pertronix 59ab

Do not use the resistor. I’ve been using your exact setup for the last 8 years. 59a engine, crab, 6v positive ground Pertronix unit. The pertronix needs the full 6v to the distributor. I bypassed...

Re: 47 pickup 100vs60 mph speedometer

Maybe someone put a 100 mph faceplate on a 60 mph speedometer? I think I read somewhere the speedometer can be recalibrated, so you could make it a 100 mph, if they really are both indeed 60 mph.

Re: Defroster Nozzels - what year?

While we are on this topic, how do the defroster hoses fit onto the nozzles? Do the hoses go over and hold on with a clamp? Or do you just press them over?

Re: 1939 1940 1941 firewall wiring kidney shaped cover

The center one looks more like the one on my 41 1/2 ton pickup. Although mine is smooth on the top and does not have that indent by the top wire opening.

Re: Empty Firewall Bolt?

Re: 1940 fan shroud

No original shroud. But I fitted a walker plastic shroud to my 41 pickup. You have to measure and cut the hole, but it works well. I found a few threads on here about others who did the same.

Re: 34,000 mile 1946 Ford Truck for upcoming TV episode

The speedo face plate is 1940 pickup. And the water temp gauge with that green bar I’ve only seen on 46-47 Mercury trucks. I agree on the horn. The pickup horn should mount on the left frame rail and...

Re: Speedometer needle

Yes, the needle is press-on. I gently pulled mine off holding the circle base with my fingers and then tapped in back on with my finger.

Re: Please educate me on scammers when selling a car

Bruce, I’ve investigated tons of these cases. Their angle is to get you to cash the check, send them back some money and then you will find out, maybe even up to a couple weeks later that the check...

Re: 1941 Pickup Temp Gauge

Right. That one on eBay is a fuel gauge, but it looks like the other temp gauges I’ve seen for 41-47.

I’m wondering if anyone can identify which models got this green bar version?
