Re: Now What, should this be???

What would make you think that? Some might not have end play depending how it was constructed but that shouldn't be a given without prior information on what a person is purchasing.

Re: Ignition wire falls out

Did you look into the coil to see if there is an old wire end clip that was stuck in there by accident? That might cause the new one to not seat. Usually the clip ends grip very tightly into the coil.

Re: How to find mechanic

Re: Gaslight's Danish transmission

What is wrong with the old one or is it missing? Where are you located? If close I'll bring you a good one for a couple hundred bucks!

Re: Now What, should this be???

Why return the pump? He isn't complaining about a leak. The shaft stop is integral to the cylinder head. Use the collar or build up the pad in the head. Some drill the end of the shaft and tap for a...

Re: Horn Wiring

No, the horn works when the horn button is pressed, running or not, if the button actually supplies a good ground.

Re: 34 ford Toe IN

When I had a shop do mine they adjusted wheel bearings, straightened the tie-rod, and adjusted the toe for under $50. But that was a few years back. A good shop can do the job. The last time it was...

Re: Is it possible to ??????

You can easily remove your pump since you don't have to clear any studs. EZE PEZE! Don't even have to move the radiator if you are careful.

Re: 34 ford Toe IN

That is why I said your favorite tire shop. The shops I patronize can do the job right. Sure it can be done at home, but the question was concerning the easiest way.

Re: Grease

You can buy the adaptor for your gun at one of the model A ford parts houses cheaper than replacing all your fittings.
