Re: A New L@@K

Re: 1951 ford f-5 troubleshooting

The gage on the dash doesn’t tell you the battery condition, it tells if the generator is working.

Re: 1951 ford f-5 troubleshooting

How would a bad generator cause it to stall out?
Does the battery go dead? Does the ammeter show no charge?

Re: Electric wiper conversion

I installed a conversion kit in an F1 some years ago.
I have forgotten where the owner bought the kit but it used a Volkswagen electric motor and was very easy to install and worked very well.

Re: selling a car to someone in Sweden

Just make sure the company that has anything to do with transporting the car does NOT have the word Stockholm in their company name.
They will keep all the money and youíll never see the car again.

Re: Need a good Suggestion on what to do

Thems called dash plaques.

Buy a large picture frame and bo what Clem and Al suggested. Only keep it in the house.
You may want a separate nice picture of your Dad to go in it too besides the car.
