Re: Rebuilt starter

The online NAPA lookup is pretty good, as someone else mentioned.

Re: Electric steering

And that brings up another point I failed to mention....
I'm told the Prius circuit for that system uses a 50 amp fuse and the
recommended wire gauge is 10 (?) to support that circuit.

Re: Which fuel fittings?

use a new olive.

48-52 Truck Fan Pulley

I believe it's 21A-8603 Hub/Sheave Assembly.
I'm looking for basically what's in the photo, not the guts inside.
(i.e.: not the shaft/impeller or bearing deal)

Thanks.

Re: Cast iron 2 groove wide belt crank pulley

Re: Installation of IFS in a 1950 F1

Re: Chevy/8BA distributors

The small body GM distributors go up to 1974.....
The one Charlie did for me was originally out of 1974 truck with a 350.

Clutch chatter eliminated finally

I removed the pedal carrier/support the other day to replace the bushings that the brake and clutch pedal rotate on.
I discovered that the rear portion of the clutch linkage rod was "wallowed" out....

Re: F-1 Brake/Clutch pedal support question

Re: 12 year old Coker tires, still ok?

Re: Informal poll - 1948-52 F-1 Front Disc Kit
