Re: Temperature gauge assembly

That gauge C&G lists is poor quality and has been out of stock for 2 years. We used to stock them.
We carry the 91A-10883 gauge NOS

The bearing mentioned is a standardized bearing number of 5300-2RS or 5300-ZZ i think. I tried one long ago as a column bearing and was not happy about something (Cant remember what) I likely still...

Re: Water pump repair

To "Properly" repair a pump it is a bit more than just installing a kit. You need to have a press as mentioned but also you NEED to reface the housing that the seal rides against.. This requires a...

Re: Gas tank sender unit.

Hard to describe without a video, but if you tap quickly with your finger on the inlet of the fuel gauge itself and then press your finger immediately hard into the opening you will see the fluid...

Re: 36-39 hubcap what is it

I've has a Wide 5 cap similar to the one in this thread. I believe they were aftermarket. You've likely seen the Model A hubcaps that say "Fool" instead of "Ford" in the typical Ford script as CAS3...

Re: Gas tank sender unit.

They work essentially off of air pressure (very slight at that). In fact you can test a 32-35 fuel gauge by tapping the inlet connection very fast with your thumb, and then apply pressure.

Re: 59a flathead New Build Crab Distributor.

Re: 59a flathead New Build Crab Distributor.

Re: 59a flathead New Build Crab Distributor.

moving the timing adjuster down advances the timing on 1942-48's.

The vacuum line should be disconnected when setting the initial timing. Personally I do not utilize the vacuum brake.

Re: Hydraulic Brake Light Switch

I've never had a issue with the new switches.... I did however have a NOS switch cause me to end up running a 39 Ford I had into a fence when it failed.
