  1. Just to make it more โ€œconventionalโ€. ๐Ÿ˜„
  2. Once you get fed up messing with the generator and regulator and start shopping for an alternator please be advised that the ones from the link I posted include shipping in the posted price. This makes these alternators very competitive with other vendors.
  3. I don't know if the photo is of the one you have or just a stock photo, but the linkage shown could be refurbished to where it looked like a new one.
  4. It was a joke................
  5. I tried to nickel and dime my P15 fuel system until I just ripped it all out and started fresh. I could force enough air back through the pickup to make bubbles but it was too constricted for the mechanical pump to maintain prime. A 74 year old fuel tank is going to be a problem. ๐Ÿ˜€ In regard to your inquiry about quality of new pumps, the new replacement I got from Rock Auto leaked, never could get it to stop. I returned it and then decided I could do better than that. That's when the entire old system bow to stern came out, full-time electric pump now.
  6. Put the original one back in, it's working fine.
  7. Leak is fixed...so far. Still have a small drip out or off the flywheel belly pan, but the flywheel was clean when I removed it and the rear seal looked dry. The little rubber seals on the bearing cap may be passing some oil.
  8. I finally solved my fuel issues with a new tank, new sender, all new lines, filter and electric fuel pump. The system is now as reliable as a new car. I don't think there is any way to access the fuel pickup/filter in the old tank. Chunk it. My old tank had some sort of alien life form living in it......... ๐Ÿ˜—
  9. I've already returned the bearing to Amazon but that looks like what I received and it is considerably larger (and the wrong shape) than the one that fits the sleeve on my transmission. Maybe it's the right one for fluid drive or something.
  10. What's interesting is the box is marked 1505 which is what I ordered, but it wasn't close to being the correct fit. Maybe what I got was mispackaged?
  11. Good idea. In case this is useful to anyone, here is how this release bearing is marked: Green USA CB-1054
  12. It's totally smooth and quiet when rotating by hand. Hoping I'm a little smarter today as well....... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  13. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr......been waiting on new release bearing so the transmission can be installed. Rock Auto listed National 1505 for my car and I was able to find the same item on Amazon with no shipping fee. It arrived today and not only is it the wrong bearing it is seized due to a manufacturing defect. This is a Federal Mogul product, thought I was buying good stuff. Grrrrrrrrrrr............ Thinking I'll put the original bearing back in since it was working well, just had a slight murmur. It is a branded bearing, probably good quality.
  14.
