Re: F1 truck MC bench bleed

The plugs sorta keep the air out. The MC doesn't create much of an issue when bleeding. You are correct to move along to other tasks.

Re: hunting a ghost problem in my '47

There shouldn't be any junk in a new tank. While I understand that you blew out the existing line, did you check the condition? A partially plugged fuel line can cause the issues you described. Ask...

Re: ‘46 pickup speedometer—notes & question

I can't speak to the pickup version, but the speedo in my 46 Tudor has an steady sweep as does my 49 F1. Your thought on a cable issue would seem correct.

Re: 40 turn signal options??
