  1. Yes, you need to work on the fuel sender with an empty tank of gas. There is one brand of newer floats that can have an issue with leaking. If the float leaks, it will collect gas inside and not float very well. So after you remove the sensor, the first thing to check is to see if the float has fuel in it. Your problem is the sensor is reading too high, which cannot be a float with fuel in it. Your problem is it reads too high, so this needs to be fixed by bending the arm to the float. Adjusting the arm to the float is a trial and error process that can take a lot of time because you need to fill the tank to check it, and empty the tank to adjust it. Get the existing angle measured by tracing the arm with a piece of cardboard so you know how much you move it. This will give you a reference of a starting place. Then bend the arm and check with your reference to see how far you bent it.
  2. You might have plenty of other pains, but not that of us in the experienced age group. Just wait, kiddo, until you are 40! Have fun while you can Danno

  4. I have mine set to about 18 degrees. As long as it does not ping when accelerating or run too hot, I understand 18 degrees is allowable.
  5. For the factory system, there is a spacer plate between the booster and the firewall. It adds 3/4 of an inch to it. Maybe you could modify this to reduce it? But then you need to reduce the pedal throw lever also, which is easy with an adjustment screw. It looks like you have an aftermarket booster, and maybe that is the problem. The original boosters might have a lower diameter, it is 7.3 inches. They were also longer, so the master cylinder was further away from the firewall. Check the diameter on your booster.
  6. Maybe a small C clamp in one side to keep it from spinning, and then get a sharp point under the end without the clamp on it. I have done it several times, but do not remember how I did it. Maybe there is a show on youtube that describes a hidden method?
  7. There are many bluetooth receivers available, some are under $10. I have mine hooked up to my Factory AM/FM radio, so I click a switch and it changes from AM/Fm to bluetooth receiver. That way the volume and tone knobs work for the sound coming from my phone, through the radio, and to the speakers. I did this modification on a 1973 Ford factory radio so I have the original appearance. I can do it for anyone else who is interested.
  8. Where is this used? I am not sure what you are referring to.
  9. The real answer to your original question depends on what the underside it like now and where you live. I bought my 69 in 1983 in Dallas and drove it to Minneapolis. I only drive it in months of the year without an "r" in the spelling: May, June July August. I have never touched the underside, and I would swear it has not changed in driving 100,000 miles for almost 40 years. Rust hides quite well, so it is possible I do not see it, but nothing has shown up. So just perhaps, in your case, doing nothing is the answer??? I'm just sayin....
  10. Maybe wrap the column with teflon tape to take up the difference? Not the stuff plumbers use, they make it for sticking to electrical things. This is kind of spendy, but maybe something like it would work? Wrap it a few times? You want something that is not going to squeeze down and compress under pressure. https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/3m/63-3-4-X36YD/1819363 It is coincidental that there are 2 small holes in the outer shaft the same distance apart. The are almost too small to be injection points, and the holes are at the top end.

  12. That is ironic, I used a screwinator to generate static on the alley cat. Everyone knows a Hensley will not work for that, you can harm the pussycat.
  13. As the windshield is the same between a coupe and convertible, I would guess the headroom is the same. The only gain in headroom would come from the fact that there is no headliner in a convertible. So I would guess you have maybe an inch more in a vert. I know others facing this issue have moved the seat back further and lower.
  14. Come on Coulombs? Although what you said is true, I only knew of coulombs in college courses on capacitance. The 3 of us on this post are probably the only 3 people in the forum who know what you are referring to.
  15. There is probably a reason why they have an 18 gauge wire internally. That small section of small wire is the fusable link. It is supposed to blow before the wire burns up. Maybe newer solenoids have a larger connection to the I terminal, and that is why we are now burning up the wires instead of the fusable link inside the solenoid>>>
