Re: 1936 Ford pickup restoration

My 35 pickup was built to keep it looking old. I had to sell it before finishing it but the reaction it had to people was unreal. I vote for leaving as much alone as possible. Can you remove the...

Re: 21 stud temp gauge question

Ok thanks guys. I am running an aftermarket mechanical gauge and it looks correct I just was not sure if the waterpump needed a special fitting.

21 stud temp gauge question

Does the temp gauge bulb just screw into the waterpump? No special fitting? It looks like there is a tapered shoulder in the hole but not sure.
