Re: Turn signal beeper or other solutions

I drilled a hole thru one of the dash rail screws and installed a green 3mm LED. Hard to ignore that flashing green light......

Re: Exhaust manifold question?

I agree, all will fit your '54 except the truck Rams Horn type exhaust. Altho they look cool, they exit right where your motor mounts want to be.

Re: Unusual extra side trim on 1956 Ford Fairlane Fordor Victoria.

No need to get nasty... :p :p I see they did use the round clock and radio along with the '55 speedo cluster (see below).



I stand corrected... Thanks Mercman.

Re: Unusual extra side trim on 1956 Ford Fairlane Fordor Victoria.

I don't think Autralia used the '55 Dash, USA '55 dash had the round radio and clock.

Re: Vaccum Gauge

Probably not. I had a NOS SW Motor Minder and an empty hole. Cost, not much.



I don't see how installing a vacuum gauge can create a problem. Your other questions aren't worth my time answering...

Re: Vaccum Gauge

I have a Stewart Warner Motor Minder, dial is color coded and pretty self explanatory as long as the needle is steady. If the needle is not steady a vacuum gauge can show many other issues.

Re: fixed till broke

Ensure the armored wire from the switch to the distributor isn't screwed in to the distributor too far, grounding out the lower plate connection. Common mistake.

Re: Amp draw when driving

Now you're confusing me. "When driving now is reads about 6 amps, when I turn on the lights it does not go any higher." Shouldn't the amps go lower when the lights are on?

Re: wheel color

I think you are correct Chris. I think I misspoke. Mine are Tacoma Cream now I think about it.

The booklet I have also shows Apple Green, which is way to bright for my liking.
