Re: Carb leaking?

I had a leak at the throttle base on mine - took forever to find it. Finally replaced the base for one without the throttle rod and problem disappeared.

Good luck

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Thanks Tom (and everyone else!)

I'll try the oil tomorrow in the gauge - if that doesn't help, I'll order a new speedometer cable.

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Thanks.

So if I understand correctly - just pull the internal cable out and don't remove the cable housing itself? I assume I'll need to disconnect the speedometer cable from both ends however?...

Since I've never done it, can you offer some...

Re: What do you think?

What do you think?

I have a 52 F1 with a 239 and 3 spd on the tree. Dana 44 rear end.

From the day I've had the truck, the transmission would 'grind' going into 1st gear (non-sync?).

This past weekend, I decided...

Re: Blower Motor Resistor - 1968 F100

I found a GM one that 'looked' like it at Summit Racing, but the holes weren't far enough apart and it wouldn't work.

Re: Blower Motor Resistor - 1968 F100

Unfortunately, no. Mine has three connectors on it with two resistors the connectors are in a "U" shape.

Thanks for the link though!

Re: LED taillites

I would check your grounds. If you don't have a good ground, you can have a slight voltage differential. Most LEDs only need .6v to light (less than 1 v) If your ground isn't good, you may get enough...
