  1. hey guys, im working on getting my tryck on the road again but i cant get the brake light to work, i have power if i touch the two wires light comes on, nothing when connected to switch, pulled the switch(it is new) and there is brake fluid at the top of the hole but nothing comes out when i hit the pedal with the switch out. new switch, master and wires. installed by previous owner.

    fuel gauge

    its from dcm but yes number 2 to signal and second post to ground works perfectly. i got the cheaper one that you have to set the float height but other than the broken wire on my truck it works great.

    fuel gauge

    i figured it out late last night i got it working out of tank sporadically ended up being the number 2 wire is broken inside casing and gets a hit or miss connection ran a new wire from the gauge and it worked perfectly.

    fuel gauge

    hey guys trying to get my fuel gauge working having some trouble its a 40 plymouth truck, ive looked through some pages on here and didnt found any answers. i got a new sending unit it bench test fine with my ohm meter it goes from 73 to 10 ohms. my gauge works if i run the number 2 wire to the center post on sending unit and put a jumper wire from frame to ground lug on sender but it pegs to full i cant get it to read a correct reading anything i do either makes it go to full or read nothing ive tried every combination of hooking up wires that you can think of. im at a loss any help is appreciated, thanks.

    ball and ball

    got my carb cleaned and rebuilt recently trucked fired right up after that and new plugs, idle screw was way out i turned it in until truck almost stalled then backed it out half a turn, issue im having is when hitting the throttle i get lots of smoke out the back and it seems like its running very rich old plugs were black and fouled and the fumes are enough to make your eyes water. is there another adjustment im missing? it seems like its dumping to much gas when off idle circuit.

    40 pt105 bed filler panels

    wow, yea i got the truck a few months back with the bed in pieces and those were in the mix i figured they were rear hidden panels underneath the bed or heat shields, i never wouldve figured out that they went in the front. maybe you know, im looking for the tailgate brackets that you slide the pin through that holds it shut mine are snapped off clean i can fab something but would like the correct part, do you know where i can find them?

    40 pt105 bed filler panels

    No i have those. I have these 2 panels and i cant figure out where they go. I first thought they were heat shields but i have the rear mounted tank and it looks like one goes around the filler neck.
  11. hey guys im assembling my bed from scratch p.o. took it all apart and i got it in pieces. everything so far has been pretty self explanatory but the rear filler panels are stumping me i cant for the life of me figure out how they attach or where. ill grab a pic of them in the morning but from the look of them i think a fender bracket mounts off of it and it has a spot for 3 bolts on one edge. there are 2 panels 1 for left 1 for right. if anyone has a pic of them on their truck theyd share or could point me in the right direction id appreciate it. thanks in advance.

    wiring

    yea i think im going to get all 3 switches, the panel switch fell apart and the spot for the taillights on the headlight switch is busted off, and the dimmer is sticky sometimes. anyone know a good place to get a headlight switch? i only have 1 taillight all the ones i keep seeing have a rotary dimmer and a spot for 2 taillights.

    wiring

    ok thanks, my switch is bad now every 30 pulls they randomly come on. truck sat for awhile outside and windshield leaked so im assuming its full of rust. hard switch to find it only has one taillight all the ones i see are for cars with 2 taillights or they have a dimmer built in i have separate panel light switch so i dont know why id need a dimmer.

    wiring

    not the headlight connector but the one that is inside the headlight bucket that goes through the fender its a twist one like a light bulb i cleaned up the contacts but they still dont work well. i think im going to replace them with weathertite bullet connectors. only thing i cant figure out now is the marker lights arent on when the headlights are on, when you pull the headlight switch 1 click markers come on when i fully engage it they shut off and headlights come on is that normal?

    so plug between headlight bucket and body was corroded, and panel light switch is bad. going to replace that and headlight switch. anyone know if they make replacement plugs for the weird round connector inside headlight?
