Re: 33 Ford 3W trade on Craigslist Seattle

Sounds like it could be scammer. The advertisement says: "I think there is a transmission, dash, gauges, steering column, etc." If you were the owner, wouldn't you know if you had these items or...

Re: Cartouche / Macs experience?

That is Macs old location in Lockport NY. They still have people there. I just purchased an item that they shipped for free to the Lockport store for pickup.

Re: Adjusting Fuel Level in King Seeley Gauge

The more I think about this I canít understand how making the liquid container smaller ( by adding the rod) is going to change the liquid level. The gauge is a u tube manometer and it measures...

Re: Adjusting Fuel Level in King Seeley Gauge

Glenn,


I think your logic and math seem plausible. I redid my King Sealy gauge a couple years ago but it only goes to about 5/8 when the tank is full. I have not tried it on true empty as I...

My car doesn't have the V8 grille emblem. I see you can buy reproductions at C&G, Macs, Drake. None of them seem to show a picture of the back side on how they mount. Do they have studs and a...
