Buzzer for Signal Lights

Others may have installed an indicating buzzer for their accessory signals, but I thought I would add my information. At 70 years, my ears don't work so good, and I couldn't hear that little click...

Re: Adding an electric fuel pump

I would suggest that you take a look at an Airtex pump. They are a flow through design, and come in 6 or 12 volt with a variety of pressures so you wont need a pressure regulator. I have one on my...

Amount of grease for 46 Driveline

Iím not sure what the PO did as far as greasing the driveline, or how much is already in the u-joint or driveshaft bearing, so the questions are:

Re: Fuel Level Sender ID

I have not removed the sender from the tank. The dash gauge works, but only reads 3/4 when the tank is full. I was planning to pull the sender to see what type of float it had, and check the range.

Fuel Level Sender ID

I believe the fuel level sender in my '46 Super Deluxe was changed out at some point in the cars past. Anyone have any info on this sender, as to its origin?

Re: A Young Mans Questions
