47 Continental Dash ?

7 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am assembling the dash on my 47 Continental and have a few questions. The car was supposed to be back together

rather quickly after being down but things happen and now it has been 7 years. Hard to believe!

Where does the turn signal flasher mount. I thought it was down by the resistors and circuit breaker but 

don't see any holes.

There is a bracket on the back of the clock that looks like it may have had a ground strap or something attached. 

It is definitely factory and there for a reason, but I just don't remember.

Probably be more.

Thanks in advance.

Dennis

the flasher mounts on the electrical breaker bolt.  The clock has ground L brackets that holds in in to the dash and the adjustment  cable to set the clock   How about a picture?

Thanks guys,

In the shop over the weekend and these parts are done. Harnesses installed, car is running and all gauges

work.

Where does the speedo cable and Overdrive cable exit the cabin? I am out of holes/grommets on the firewall.

Do these exit through the transmission cover?

Thanks again,

Dennis

Thanks Lee,

I'll wait for photo because I appear to be out of holes and grommets for these cables.

I have identified the hood release, fresh air cable , throttle and choke rods and the one large grommet

for the harness.

Here is where the speedometer cable enters on  my 41 Continental, under drivers side from fender you should see a one inch hole next to a wiring harness. The cable feeds up into that hole, then across to the speedometer.
