  1. Thanks, yep.. I think it might be a Texaco Oil Pump.. or known as a lubester pump.. kinda cool.. dr. Google says used for a lot of applications.. mostly for motor oil..
  2. Acquired this unique pump (gas, oil?).. era is apx 1935 to 45? Could be 50's? It's working with pressure... What is it? Used for?
  3. Hello, I have decided that my car will be converted to a 12v system, all new wires as I have the car fully accessible.. Seen some great videos on building a fuse block with relays, terminals and boards on ABS plastic.. weatherproof etc.. But often wondered.. I have seen both ways done in antique cars.. some have in engine bay, others wire them in under the dash.. some do both as a split.. What would you recommend? All I'm running is lights, heater, dash gauges, small indicator lights wipers horns and maybe in the future the original radio..
  4. Thanks, that's a great idea, never thought of that.. Will post results when done

  6. Hello Everyone, its been a while since I have been on the forums... now resuming my restoration project after moving to a new home; getting my Garagemahal ready with lights, power, insulated walls and heater etc.. im ready to get back at her..

  7. Members, lm trying to find a paint code or mix formula for a "close to" match to the famous Tiffany Blue. I have many samples, any actual Tiffany boxes that was taken to a custom repair shop to try and colour match, the scans come up, but the system can't make the formula.. I even tried to get a home paint store to scan, they could but the box formula is for house paint.. i emailed Lamborghini to see if they could help... some codes are close, but I was wondering if someone would have their code / mix formula to share, so I can get a spray can made to test.. p
  8. Yes, they are sealed units, with built in led turn, I think the model of them at 900IT, I still have the glass originals, but wanted to try and make a testing bench for all my lights.. With a switch to simulate high, low and flasher.. This way I can see how they will look before actual install, i saw some videos on some neat setups, a small battery then a small 2x4 with a few toggles, one for on, high and turn.. Just need to find how to make it and wire it all up.

  10. So sorry.. been away for a while, however now back at my restoration project.. will catch up on the conversations...
