Re: 36 acceleration pump

I think your talking about a Stromberg 97?? If so there seems to be an obstruction blocking the accelerator passages or there is no fuel for the pump to pump. Should have a good strong pump stream.

Re: Replacement Ignition Key

Re: 40 Front Axle Perch Bolt

The shackle can be replaced without removing the perch or removing the axle. They are the same as the spring shackles. You have to make a tool to press them in.

Re: Generator connection off?

From what David just posted #13 your car should not have the lighting fuse. So the schematic diagram JSerry #5 is correct your car. I can't think of a better time to replace the wiring harness. ...

Re: Generator connection off?

Does your car have a fuse for the lighting system? It should be mounted under the dash on the drivers side support panel (I believe like the V8). Does your horn work? It appears some early cars did...

Re: Q: 34 Diff: torque on housing/ pinion preload etc.

No the Ford Spec. does not vary with new or used bearing and races. Could consider the bottom end of the Spec. or the top end. If you don't want to use the Ford Spec. that is up to the installer.

David is correct I have corrected my post above, to remove reference to the generator grounding through intake manifold, since that is a V8 issue and not 4 Cyl.

Re: Fixer's idea or aftermarket?

Since they are cast there is little chance they are assembled from two parts. Most likely a non Ford part. The 33-34 on/off lever is also used on other cars. I believe Southside Obsolete has the...
