If it were me and I had any question what so ever I would rewire , especially since this is that 'forever' car. $ 400.00 bucks or so and a couple...
I actually have a nice long project list out in the garage this weekend myself.
Just a note wishing all the best for Thanksgiving..... We are all blessed to be able to enjoy these rides !

My 41 Ford and 34 Chevy
Way Cool for running split manifold etc.
I actually had a similar issue with my '34 Chevy. 350 crate motor.....turned out, it was with the starter and solenoid. The headers got hot and...
Drive mine several days a week to work, here she sits in the parking lot today.
My '41 Ford
Years ago I kept spreadsheets on build expenses....... As I've grown older, I realize I never could stay between the lines anyways.
I like DD because its easy to work with. I usually detent each end of the shaft where the set screw contacts.
I did my '41 Ford Pickup (which is the same as the '39 deluxe car frame and suspension). I used a Fatman Fabrications hub to hub kit. Not exactly...
I think I'm growing to like the thing now. I believe I'll add cruise control for the long hauls on the interstate, but around town I'm likin' it now.
Rather than actual Spider caps, I opted for push through domes and chrome lugs. I wasn't ever sure about screwing the top part to the bottom plate...

When I cut mine open doing the conversion to a paper filter this is what the insides looked like. It was most like a potscrubber. Very Wirey...
Sounds like I got some 'justin' to do. I think it is too high, half the time I think I'm on the throttle I mash it and I get about 10 mph then...
I will try that. Thanks for the input.
My converted 'Oil Bath' Air cleaner on my 302 Roller:
Heaven Forbid !!!! :) and lose that originality !!!????? :)
When I did mine originally, I hammered the wishbone more round , slipped the bung in and welded it up. I don't remember how long mine were (I've...
Thats waaaay too simple :). I live in a very hilly area and it drives me nuts sometimes disallowing my fat foot easy access :)
the bung fits inside the one wishbone end:
I've often wondered what the REAL purpose of this knob by to throttle was/is. I call it an inconvenience. Anyone know what the real idea for it...
I have my '41 out most every day. Drive to and from work at least 4 days a week. [IMG]
