Ford regulator...

I have replaced the voltage regulator with a new electronic Ford regulator.

For a show car it might be worth to spend the $200 for an original looking one. This one was less than $11.

Rear bearing, fuel pump.

The rear bearing are humming. Someone try to open the dust cover and made a hole. The grease probably escaped and the moisture got in.

Dry as a bone.

I used a needle to inject some grease; hopefully this will help. I hope I don't have to change the bearings.

I got stuck again on the road. The fuel filter was clogged. I removed the filter near the pump and put it in the trunk.

I used pvc pipes to avoid the hoses to be crushed.

The owner can monitor the filter and eventually change it without any tools.

This is a temporary setup until the tank gets cleared up. Then, the filter can go back near the pump.

New starter

Here is the new starter:

Much smaller and liter than the original one (Almost 10 Kg less).

Fuel pick up and pressure

While testing the car, I got stuck. Turned out that the fuel pickup got clogged. The screen was already removed.

I have removed the end piece and cut the metal pipe like the end of a epidermic needle and made 2 holes on the other side to avoid suction in case of piece of dirt getting close to it.

Now, I am getting 4.5 psi at the carbs.
