Re: changing float and float lever rod on King Seely fuel sender

I did the cut/solder thing when I replaced the arm on the sender for my '46 Coupe. Pre-tinned as suggested above, wrapped with small copper wire, then soldered. It is important that the float arm...

Re: Up to Date Info on a 6 Volt Fuel Pump?

I did a fuel pressure test with the 6 volt Airtex on my ‘46, and it puts out 3 psi. That was done using a high quality 0-5 psi gauge, so no pressure regulator needed.

Re: Electric Windshield Wiper Motor Needed

Re: 1947 Super Deluxe ignition Switch

I did the same as fordor41, on my '46 Coupe, except I soldered the "ears" on the outer edges, just enough to hold the case together. Make sure the lever and switch are in the correct position to...

Re: Anyone running a quiet 6v electric fuel pump?

I have an Airtex 6v pump on my '46 Coupe, 59AB, that I use for "priming" if the car has sat for several weeks. The pump is very quiet, as Fritz says. I turn it off when I hear the sound change,...

Re: Questions on Dwell

Re: Wiper arm tension 1936

Re: Non-Zero Oil Pressure

Ford designed the gauge system to be “failsafe”. When the power is off the fuel reads E, the oil reads 0 and the temp goes to full H. Maybe you need an 80 psi oil sender? Agree with Jay, maybe 8V...
