  1. technical

    Actually, looking at the diagram in-depth zoomed in, it appears that the rubber isolator side is towards the pressure plate, and no discernible difference in length of the hub of either side of the friction plates. But the actually item definitely look like there was a difference.

    Here is a pic of the long side, with the rubber insulators. And the other side.

    If its more like the 28 Chrysler clutch, here is diagram. As Keiser said, there is definitely a certain orientation to the clutch disc, long side towards the flywheel.User Manual page 46.tif I was deceived by the brake master cylinder on this page. Nothing to do with the clutch pedal.
  4. fuel gauge

    Actually, test the sender unit with a multimeter using the ohm meter setting to find out what the resistance is when the sender is in the low fuel level. Then set the POT to this value of resistance. Should be a low level ie. 10-40 ohms. But it can also operate the opposite way as well, ie. maximum reisitance at low fuel level and decreases when the fuel level increases. So do some testing with your ohm meter.
  5. fuel gauge

    The fuel gauge works on amps, the needle moves based on the amount of amps coming from the sender, which is a simple varying resistor. So going to 12 volts may have burnt an internal wire as you have observed and fixed. To test it on a bench with a 12v battery, buy a couple Pots (variable resistors) from your local electronic store (Jaycar) ie. 0 to 250ohm will be a good for the job. Measure the maximum resistance of the sender unit and match one of the POT's to that value. Attached that POT in series between the 12v battery and one of the inputs of the gauge. Attached the other POT where the sender unit would need to connect and also to the negative (or positive) of the battery. This second POT now will act like your sender unit, turning it will move the gauge needle.
  6. What is this aftermarket device under my dash?

    I agree, most likely an after market cruise control device. Was there a cable inside that black hose? I recall some of the 1980's cruise control units worked off a device attached to the tail shaft.
  7. Forum New Look

    Any chance of it being in Roman numerals....:)
  8. '26 clutch problem.

    A good 'burn out' will test to see how well you have fixed that clutch...:)
  9. @mike6024 You also need to divide the 115,000 by 4 (at best divide by 3) to allow for the ICE inefficiencies. Also, home battery storage is being deployed like solar was 10 years ago in mass. It wouldn't be a surprise if residential power is all produce in house in the next 20 years.
  10. Even with transmission losses, an electric motor is still more energy efficient that an ICE, at least twice if not thrice. An ICE transfers only about 25% (a more modern example maybe up to 33%) of the store energy in the fuel to motion. Don't underestimate the advancement of technology and the progressive nature of young people. The only hurdle holding back renewables is government and their fossil fuel mates. Regarding the absolute ban of ICE, our cars can be retro fitted with electric motors and batteries relatively easily. People are doing it right now. How will that effect the value? I have no idea. I guess the museum examples will hold their value because they are not driven anyway.
  11. '26 clutch problem.

    Only twice?
  12. It came out a decade before my high school years but I dreamt about it all my teens. Australia Charger.
  13. Not a bad pic of my missus legs...:) I purchased this from a bloke who asked me if I wanted a vacuum port in the bb1. I thought he had tapped that hole. I use it for tuning with a vacuum gauge.
  14. Dumb Carb Question

    Yep, vacuum port.
  15. Totally agree. The Ford version of the speedo has the reset pin from the top.
