Unknown part on 1949 Super 8

Recommended Posts

I need a little help. I picked up a spark plug cover for Betty, but this solenoid looking part is in the way of the mounting. Any idea what this is and if it can be removed or relocated? Thank you all!

If your talking about the rectangle canister shaped thing on the left, i believe this to be your horn relay. I could be wrong. It wouldnt hurt to remove it to gain access, but if your horn works now, it wont if you discard that relay.

There should be a little U-shaped cut-out near the upper rear corner of the spark plug cover, to accommodate that sensor wire for what I believe is the temperature gauge. See photo of my '49 engine.

That is correct on the temp sender. The thing that seems like a wire with a spring coiled around it is a temp gauge line. I would think the line would gently fold flat against the head, then attach the spark plug cover. The coiled line will exit out the back of the now attached cover. Pete is right.
