  1. My original CARTER fuel pump.

    Have you considered replacing that mechanical pump with an electric pump? My mechanical pump failed recently that is only 1-1/2 year old. I'm replacing it with a Carter electric vane pump because I'm tired of the problems with the mechanical pump.
  2. Wiring Harness

    I completely rewired my 46 WC in the past year with cloth covered wire trying to closely follow the factory specifications. When I added turn signals and some other accessories that all went out the window as far as color correct, but I stayed with cloth covered wire on everything and it's totally done from connector to connector. Have anybody considered using a reproduction harness from any source? Knowing how much I spent on wiring, terminals, shrink tubing, etc., and how much got wasted I'm not so sure I wouldn't have been better off with a harness already built and complete. I've been told this company is about the only one that makes point quality harness yet. http://www.riwire.com/
  3. 1940 pt105

    Did you replace the brake lines and hoses?
  4. Looking for a carb?

    They might be jetted wrong, but would be close and for the price... http://www.ebay.com/itm/1940-47-DODGE-FARGO-TRUCK-CARB-/112541456080?hash=item1a33fe56d0:g:gTIAAOSw7ZlZocyl http://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-56-DODGE-TRUCK-CARB-/112541454859?hash=item1a33fe520b:g:l7wAAOSwv2RZocve A few others that might work, just look at the sellers listing.
  5. Jerry, did you change the type of u-joint from your transmission? What did you change when you put the Dakota rear end in?
  6. Lets see pic of your trucks

    That looks like an International Harvestor emblem.
  7. Where under hood battery location

    My truck had the battery under the hood from a PO, and it was a mess. First thing I did was pull it out and made a new bracket inside the frame where the original location was.
  8. Oil

    Forgot to mention, I dump a bottle of STP in from time to time also. Either that or Lucas oil stabilizer.
  9. Short or Long?

    You might have a lot of salvageable parts there. I could use a rebuildable engine. Looking at the background in your picture, you're a long ways away from me.
  10. The trans mounting holes on the front housing have a different pattern for a 4 speed as opposed to a 3 speed. 3 Speed trans in a 1/2 ton was standard equipment.
  11. Oil

    My engine is worn and I run O'Reilly 20W-50, (cheap). I also cleaned my pan out before running it. Just look at the container and it will say if it's non detergent. I never run non detergent in anything.
  12. 12 volt conversion wiring diagram

    Actually haven't had any trouble but haven't been impatient in traffic to know that. How many amps does the horn in our trucks WC and pilot house models draw? I know my Ames horn in a different car pulls 4 to 5 amps and while in parades it gets used a lot. Heat has never been a problem with 6 amp diodes, however in the future I will probably use 10 amp the next time.

    Use 6 amp diodes, each diode drops the voltage .7 volts. Just splice the wire between your amp meter and the horn and solder the diodes in. I've tried both resistors and diodes and diodes work best for me. http://www.ebay.com/itm/132114125153?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Here are some rated 10 amp that will work also if you don't mind the waiting time for shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/20x-10A10-10Amp-1000V-10A-1KV-R-6-MIC-General-Purpose-Axial-Rectifier-Diodes/182323218419?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D41376%26meid%3D45b4d1dff37a44519a1846652932ccf3%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D132114125153

    As far as the horn goes, you don't need to change that to a 12 volt. Just use a series of diodes in the wire from your source to the horn to lower the voltage, keep the original horn.

    Now this looks BITCHIN!!
