Re: 1948 ford convertible top cylinders

I don't think there are in the replacement cylinders, Mike, but you do need to replace the hoses as part of the rebuild. At least that's Hydro E Lectric says for pre-1953 cars who want to convert to...

Re: Rack & Pinion Steering for 1947 Ford

Re: 51 Merc Wiring kit

Didn't see an answer to your question about a later conversion to 12 volts. I'm pretty sure your new 6 volt wiring system will be more than enough to handle the voltage increase....believe the 6...

Re: Air filter

Paul, when you say "foam" do you mean a K&N type filter element is not what you're looking for?
