Re: WTF?? battery 30V ?

I haven't heard anything about ground. Is it + or -? If the alt was hooked up wrong even for a second, (plausible suspicion) diodes are probably toast. I believe there are probably many things...

Re: WTF?? battery 30V ?

I don't think it is possible chemically for a 12 v battery to store 30volts. You must have made this measurement with it running and the alternator is messed up. 1 wire alternators are internally...

Re: I guess its time ???

Prioritizing one's time is most important and I am glad you have given the old Ford community the time you did. Thanks for that and take care.

Re: Fuel pump

The cam lobe the rod rides on may be worn if the rod itself is the correct length. I have seen a KRW tool that measures the length of travel of the rod. A dial indicator could do the same thing.

Re: 39-48 steering worm gear.

I would think a NOS Ford one would be worth at least $100. I have sold NOS shafts for that which were odd lengths and people pressed the gear off and replaced their own worn out one.

I think the one I have is 2 1/2 tons but I have had it several years and it has not given me any trouble. I really like how light it is. I think I paid 159 or something like that.

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

Re: 32 Ford Cowl Vent

Was the mechanism hooked up while it was bolted down? IF not maybe because of an early vs late vent not hooking up to the hinge spot? Just a wild guess. Probably something bent if the original...
