Re: 35 Ford Columbia Speedometer?

No problem. I ran mine for quite a while until I got the changer. Just do the math when in overdrive; increase the indicated speed by 30%. BTW, my changer doesn't use vacuum, it's manually changed.

Re: Industria Argentina

I've been fooling around with a gas gauge sender that has no markings at all. Is there a way to identify a oem sender; ie. KS vs. an Argentina made sender?

In photo #3, is that a relay for the headlights? If so, who is the manufacturer.

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

Maybe a bad, or just dirty ignition switch. I had that problem with my '39 and I had to rebuild the switch.

I've seen these "tube" nuts in both brass or bronze color or shiny like stainless. Also, some knurled and some smooth. Which of these, if any, were original ?

Re: Need help Identifying Make of Overdrive

That unit was built by Lloyd Young of Winchester, Ohio. He was known as "Mr. Overdrive". Unfortunately, he passed away in 2017 at 87 years old. His o/d conversion was one of the best that I've seen.
