Ringing sound in engine

Lately, I have heard what can best be described as a ringing sound coming from my 59 AB engine in my 46 Mercury. It is not a chirping sound--like from a belt. It sounds kind of like high pitched...

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

I will let you all know how the Drake unit works. I'm not up to removing grindings from a new tank after grinding down the lip. Suppose it could be done by flushing with water & letting dry out...

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

Finally got around to testing my cleaned up original sending unit manually (out of tank). It moved my gas gauge from empty to full settings as I moved the float wire back and forth. Good news,...

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

Re: Gas tank question - 46 Mercury

Was able to find some very nice jute padding at my local auto upholstery store. Since I do not plan to drive the car in the rain, I feel OK using this. Thanks again for all the comments.

Re: Gas Tank Sending Unit Woes - 46 Merc

I appreciate the warning. The vendor specifically stated that the sending unit is intended for use with original Ford gauges. The next best option, I suppose, is to reinstall my original 60 year...

What do any of you experts suggest to use as insulation between top of new tank and floorboard? Old tank has a couple of very original (and falling apart) strips of felt-like material. Hate to try...
