  1. Thanks very much for the info. I was also wondering about the wire gauge, so that's helpful. Was going to use #10 but will now go with #8. Thanks again.
  2. Just got a '46 Merc that has been converted to single wire alternator. The wire is connected directly to the battery at the starter switch rather than through the ammeter. Is this a problem other than the fact that the gauge is of no value? Thanks
  3. Looking to buy an exhaust manifold for 1946 Ford L6 engine.
  4. Looking for an exhaust manifold for a 1946 Ford flathesd SIX. Thanks
  5. Looking for a serviceable exhaust manifold for a 1946 Ford flathead SIX .
  6. Looking to buy a LARGE SCALE wiring diagram for a 1937 Desoto S3. Thanks
  7. Can the brake shoe adjusting cam on 1940's vintage Mopars be repaired? I have a couple that the adjusting bolt turns, but the cam does not.
  8. Enjoyed all the comments. Thanks. I decided to buy one repro bumper. It's definitely not as stout as the original, but I don't think that will be noticable once it's on the truck. After the truck is painted, I'll mount this bumper and see how it looks. If ok, I'll buy the second repro, if not, I get one of the originals rechromed.
  9. I think I may need to replace the fuel pump on a '38 Pontiac 6 cylinder. The original pump was single action, but the replacement I have is a duel diaphram. Can I use the new one as a fuel pump only? If so, do the ports on the vacuum section need to be plugged? Thanks.
  10. I'm working on fixing up a 1951 Chevy 1/2 ton. Don't want a show truck, just a good looking daily driver. I was going to have the original bumpers rechromed, but realized that I can buy new reproduction bumpers in less time for less money. Anyone have any recommendations? Are the repro bumpers good and sturdy and do they look original? Thanks
  11. Perfect. Thanks very much. That's all I need.
  12. Sorry, I meant 1946 Desoto.
  13. Can someone tell me a quick way to distinguish between the Custom and Deluxe models for the 1946 Chryslers? Thanks
  14. Did the 1948-1952 Chevy and GM 1/2 ton pickups have a paint code on them anywhere? Thanks
