Re: Ford accessory Stop/Tail light parts ???

Terry; bulbs really aren't the problem here it's just that like what you said if the socket itself has gone bad there's really nothing to replace it. Those spring pins have seen better years... One side is missing on the Bakelite connector side and missing a pin on the bulb side... Just have the spr...

Re: Ford accessory Stop/Tail light parts ???

With closer inspection today, and remembering when I first installed this light about 15 years ago the positive terminals resembled spring loaded posts. All that remains of the tail light socket is the spring without the movable post. For years I've used a single contact bulb and worked fine for the...

Ford accessory Stop/Tail light parts ???

Duh.... Well today I changed light bulbs. Put them in turned the power on and check to see if they light and I see smoke coming up. So lights got shut off very quick. Turns out the center terminal insert that goes in the spring for the tail light is missing and the spring was grounding out. Are ther...

Re: 26-27 transmission top plate bolts..

The longer hex head bolts were standard with the improved transmission for 2627 due to the wider brake drum. All of them should be the same length not to cause any imbalance in the rotation

Re: Open car windshield wiper bracket problems?

Mark, the whole in the bracket is too big for the wiper section and is a sloppy fit. I'm thinking that maybe some bushings can be made from some brass nesting tubing to cut down on the sloppiness so once installed the wiper would have minimal sloppiness and pressure on the top windshield glass

Re: 15 millionth radiator question.

Brent; r26 runabout was built in October of 1926, and has a three-row radiator originally and has since been replaced by a five-row brass works radiator. Technically it should be registered as a 27 but I wasn't about to change the registration it already had.
