    30 cf fuse size

    Hi, I just finished installing a new wiring harness. Not too tough. But it isn’t getting a spark. I jumped the old fuse holder with a modern one. I’m wondering about the ignition switch. There are 2 lugs. one says coil,one says ammeter. There was no mention of the connection between the switch and the coil - side. On the schematic it looks like there’s 3 posts on the switch. But it ran before I changed the wiring. When I turn the key on the gas gauge pegs to full. Horn works. No dash lights. I’ve gone over the new wiring and feel confident I have that right. Turns over ok. Really confused. Thanks for any help. 1930 DeSoto cf

    30 cf fuse size

    Hi, I know that I’ve asked this question before but I’m asking again. What is the fuse size for the cf. I think it’s 30 amp. I don’t know why I can’t find the answer anywhere. Thanks

    I don’t smoke,so no problem. Old wiring is out. New one is in. Not very difficult except for crawling under the car. Maybe it’s the wire that makes the needle jump. Rear light socket is bad , the portion where the wires go in. I can’t seem to find a replacement.

    Rear light socket

    Hi, The rear light socket . It’s the piece that holds the wires. Found one at a Ford catalog. But was told that the Ford could be an odd size and not fit. Wiring 3/4 finished, hardest part is crawling under the car. Back and forth. I was wondering about bright cable for the headlight wires. How does it stay in place? Thanks, Mars 1930 cf 4 dr

    What is special about speedometer grease? What about regular auto grease?

    Hi, thanks for the response, I've got the time now to do it. I'll let you know how it works out.

    I've heard not to lubricate the head, right? Any other thoughts? Fuel gauge bounces a lot, I assume that's how it is. Too much time to nitpick.

    I disconnected it from the unit, but it doesn't seem to want to come out. I pulled with pliers. I don't want to break something that works for a little noise. Do I have to remove both ends? Thanks, be safe
