Re: torquing 8ba heads with an oil filter

Part #: 32-23817-1 at Macs Auto Parts. Is a pic of what I was thinking or something similar. Used them on FE engines to retorque head bolts without removing rocker arm shafts.

Re: torquing 8ba heads with an oil filter

Cannot think of the name for them but there is a box end tool on the order of a crow foot with a tall C shaped body and square drive end on the top of the C. Will reach under rocker arms and shafts....

Re: Radio Polarity Help Needed

Tried to use early VW 6 volt in a Ford once. Insulated it real good and blew it when antenna cable got plugged in. Forgot antenna cable coax is hooked to the car body on the mast mount.

Re: Gas Sending Unit

That is a head scratcher, you should have used between 4 and 5 gallons. What tank is in the car the 40? Any chance that the depth would be greater than a Aerostar and effect the float staying up...

Re: Gas Sending Unit

Have you tried calibrating the fuel link. I believe it has half a dozen presets. Try calling classic instruments.
