Quote from: CapnDirk on April 17, 2017, 03:14 PMHow do you switch from tank to tank, manual/mechanical valve, or electric valve?
Quote from: dakattackI checked both filters and fuel flow is very strong so im hoping that means the pump is working.

Quote from: DRMousseau on April 20, 2017, 06:23 AMI'm thinkin' this is probably a good idea. As I noted,... mine ran poorly and started hard too, and the carb was pretty gunky. It took me 10hr to rebuild my Holly/MotorCraft carb,... I'm old, retired, and take breaks every hour, lol! A rebuild kit is roughly $40, a rebuilt carb is in excess of $300,.... so it's time well spent and worthwhile as it IS within most folks capabilities.and remember,... it's gonna start much easier. Pump it more than once or twice and it'll flood out, heck, it's an old carbureted Ford! It's jus the way they are!Now I had noticeably less fuel flow from the line at the carb inlet than at the filter, but that's because of the regulator jus before the end of the fuel line, and it "shouldn't" be cause for alarm. I'm thinkin' this carb rebuild is gonna be pretty significant for ya.
Quote from: DaveVA78Chieftain on September 29, 2017, 08:06 PMI suspect you have a fusible link breaking down and opening up once it heats up from current flowing through it. Once it cools down it makes contact again so you can start it. I believe there are 3 fusible links on the starter relay and another one under the dash leading to the ignition switch.Also, there are 2 circuits in the ignition switch that supply the coil. One is used to provide full voltage to the coil in start. The 2nd one (run) routes power through a resistor (ballast)
Quote from: Tangerine on February 02, 2023, 04:42 AMHi! New here. I have the same exact rig and same problem. Can anyone tell me if the fuel pump is inside the tank, on top of the tank, or in the front of the engine? Really don't want to have to drop the tank if I don't have to. Tell me somethjn' good! Any manuals available?
