  1. have had both my 26 and 27 Buick done at local muffler shop. Alot cheaper than sending away for kit.
  2. I just installed new hood supports from Speedway. Fits 42-48 Ford only. Worth looking at them. Hood never shut so good and very little gap by firewall.

  5. I HAVE A 48 Ford that I converted to 12 volt with electronic ignition. What is best 7MM universal ignition wire set to use. I am usually the chrome looms.
  6. I have a 4 post lift that I can put anything on. I did put my 48 Ford Conv. on a 2- post lift and body started to sagg front and rear. I think because there is no metal roof..
  7. I restore a 48 Ford Conv. Body off so I sandblasted frame and springs used POR-15 Was 12 years ago and still looks.
  8. I found a pair at Advance auto for $25, sound pretty good,
  9. 17Tom40 Thanks a lot never thought of looking at Macs, their website is don right now. i have a Harbor freight ahgoo horn but doesn't go with a 48 Ford. Thanks again Steve
  10. Looking for a replacement 12 volt horn for a 48 Ford. Are there any modern ones that sound good. I have a harbour freight model A type but doesn't have a good sound. Thanks for any help.
  11. Went to my starter rebuilder. He took a 56 Field coil (12 volt) and put in my 6 volt 48 Ford starter. Works great doesn't turn over as fast as the 6 volt starter running on 12 volt. With the 6 volt starter running too fast it had chipped a couple teeth on ring gear.
  12. I had keys made for my 48 Ford and locksmith took all my locks and coded them so One key would fit all. Did the same on a 36 Chev back in the 70's. So handy to have just one key. Good luck
  13. Would a 12 volt battery pak have enough juice to run a CB and GPS for say 8 hrs. Or would I be better off with a 12 volt battery and charge every night, Thanks
  14. I would to install a 12 volt alternator on my 27 Buick so I could run a CB and GPS. Has anyone put a pulley on shaft to water pump. Of coarse I would have to check RPM of water pump shaft. Thanks
  15. I converted my 48 Ford to 12 volt and left the 6 volt starter in. It has been making an awful noise. It even started to chip the ring gear. Talked to my starter guy. He used a field coil out of a 56 (12 volt) Ford starter. Sure turns slower and makes no noise.
