49 F1 fuel tank sender

Looking for a NOS fuel gauge sending unit or a great working used one. Tired of running out of gas!:D

Thanks.

Re: Bought three Flathead V8 engines yesterday

I have a model A tranny that's been converted for use in a boat. Forward and reverse with 1:1 only.

Model A Pickup bodywork

I've posted links to earlier parts of this project, this is a very good one. The guy uses a lot of profanity but works miracles with a hammer and dolly.

Interesting old car remnants

I've recently moved, there is a wooded area next to my property. Found this 100 feet away from my house. Anyone know what it is?

Re: Strange Transmission Modification

Unfortunately, I can't see much of a reason to keep this in my "collection". Can't see much of any use for anything...

Re: Strange Transmission Modification

It appears that the only functions are straight through like normal third gear, and reverse engaged and not engaged. And reverse is either 1 to 1 or very close.

Re: Strange Transmission Modification

I know it's hard to see, but notice the center of the cluster has been machined off.

Strange Transmission Modification

Re: 8BA oil pan, pump questions

I just went through this. There is a gasket on the inside as well. Really a lot of crud inside the pan, almost couldn't tell the ring and studs were a separate part from the pan. I think these tend...

Re: 8BA Flywheel/Clutch....I've Read TOO Much

It's never a good idea to look at craigslist just for the fun of it. 8^)

Re: 8RT pulling the heads

I'm hardly any expert but I'd help out if I can. I'm sure all the guys on the barn would like to see your project.

Re: 8BA Flywheel/Clutch....I've Read TOO Much

Just a quick follow up, I finally have my F-1 put back together enough to drive it and the clutch works great and no excessive vibration that I can detect. Only been up to 50 MPH however.:)

Re: 8BA Flywheel/Clutch....I've Read TOO Much

I finished drilling and tapping. She bolted right up. The Pressure plate came from O'Reilly's, probably from China I suppose. It's bolt holes were not oversize to accommodate the bolts with the...

Re: 8BA Flywheel/Clutch....I've Read TOO Much
