    Interchangeable Starters?

    Just to muddy up the waters even more, If you find a 49 solenoid, don't buy it. It looks identical to the 46-48 but the bellhousing offset is different. The bracket orientation is an easy to miss detail.

    Industrial Engine

    Here's a crappy shot of my ind32's data plate and another shot of its pristine color coded intake and exhaust valve springs.

    Fuel Mixture Screw doesn't change the idle.

    You could be pulling in air through the throttle plate shaft hole. They do wear out. Last time I rebuilt one I had to pick through several junkers before I found one that didn't leak.

    Compression test results

    If the numbers go up it may be the rings. Last time I did a wet test I got one of those baby medicine syringes to put the oil in with since the valve train is over the plug holes. Shove a piece of plastic tubing onto the end of it and feed it in so that all the oil makes it into the bore where you want it.

    Chrome alternative

    I have to say that that looks damn good. Did you have to sand most of it by hand? I know that I'd be the hit of my neighborhood if I were to try traditional chrome plating here in Northern New Jersey where most people don't even know how to change a tire and everybody is packed in like sardines.

    Fuel Pump

    If it were me, I'd be more inclined to rebuild it or have someone else rebuild it if your not comfortable doing it yourself. A lot of the new replacements available out there are not great quality wise. Also, make sure the problem isn't the flexable line running from the frame to the pump itself. If it's as old as the car,it could easily be leaking and making it look like the pump is the source of the leak.

    Harmonic balancer

    You can try the damper doctor. I don't know how good they are but they have been around for years.https://www.damperdoctor.com/

    Anyone fix fluid drive in Chicago?

    If it's a 49 with the original trans, It's probably an m-6,

    ? about oil pan removal

    I don't think you have to removing the steering knuckle. Turn the steering wheel all the way over till the knuckle is out of the way. Can't remember if its all the way right or left but one of them will do it.

    E brake light switch?

    I never did one but if I were going to,I'd probably use one of those modern brake light switches that are near the pedal arm. Pushing the pedal closes the contact and brake lights come on. You could probably adapt one of those for your e brake arm and it would be practically invisible. The best part is that they are available at any junkyard.

    Oil in the gauge oil line?

    pressure is pressure whether it's driven by an air pocket or oil.

    Negative Ground

    You might want to poke around a bit to try and figure out why the previous owner changed it in the first place.
