Re: Fuel Level Gauge Problem

I finally got the sender working correctly, if even temporarily. First, the fluid in the plastic float. I could not get any fluid out of it, no matter how hard I squeezed, so I drilled a .020" hole...

Re: Leaking transmission 47 monarch

I used coiled roll pins to connect the shift arms to the shafts. Working good so far, and are nice and tight. They come in various sizes, and can be bought in small quantities (2) from most...

Re: Leaking transmission 47 monarch

47Monarch I did the seals on my "46 Coupe. I posted on the EFV8 site, and got some good suggestions, similar to here on the Barn. As my '46 has a removeable floor plate, I could remove the shift...

Re: Fuel Level Gauge Problem

I forgot to ask the orientation of the sender arm when installed. I assume it would be sideways in the tank?

Fuel Level Gauge Problem

It all started when I got my dash gauges working, and found the fuel gauge to be inaccurate. A full tank was showing 3/4 full, and empty still had about 5 gallons in the tank. I tested the volts at...

Re: Clock Repair on the '47

RKS That was an interesting post. My '46 Super Deluxe Coupe was built late in the year, and has an electric clock. I wonder if the trim level had a bearing on which type of clock was installed. I...

Re: Identifying carburetors

This post refers to 48 and 97 carbs. The carb on my '46 (late year build) has the number 59 cast on the body and Ford on the other side. What company built this carb? Is it comparable to the 48/97...

Re: Converting 1940 Ford backing plates to self-energizing brakes

I did front and rear on my '46. I had to do a bit of grinding on the front spindle castings to get the backing plate to seat. Other than that, all went well. The kits are available from Speedway...

Re: installation of 12V fuel pump on 39 Ford

Check this website. Summit lists several pumps, and one may suit your needs. I have a 6v on my '46 with a filter on the inlet of the pump, and only use it to "prime" the mechanical pump/carb if the...

Buzzer for Signal Lights

Re: Adding an electric fuel pump

I would suggest that you take a look at an Airtex pump. They are a flow through design, and come in 6 or 12 volt with a variety of pressures so you wont need a pressure regulator. I have one on my...

Amount of grease for 46 Driveline

Iím not sure what the PO did as far as greasing the driveline, or how much is already in the u-joint or driveshaft bearing, so the questions are:
Can the u-joint/clamshell be overgreased?
If...

Re: Fuel Level Sender ID

I have not removed the sender from the tank. The dash gauge works, but only reads 3/4 when the tank is full. I was planning to pull the sender to see what type of float it had, and check the range.

Fuel Level Sender ID

I believe the fuel level sender in my '46 Super Deluxe was changed out at some point in the cars past. Anyone have any info on this sender, as to its origin?

Re: A Young Mans Questions

Well, that was one option I forgot. After all these years, the cowl scoop still works. Of couse the 4/60 AC always works. Four windows open and 60 MPH.
