  1. fuel guage

    I'm still working on the speedo but I changed the sending unit and that solved that problem. In the meantime I'm going to use a gps to tell me my speed.
  2. fuel guage

    the guages are VDO . It's crazy because now the speedometer doesn't work. It's all electronic no cable. As far as the gas guage, I was trying to avoid taking out the sending unit until I know for sure if it is the guage or not. I guess that will be the way to find out though.
  3. fuel guage

    Okay, I have my truck running really good now , just tuned it up. I do however have a small problem, the gas guage. It always reads full, I checked the sending unit by taking off the wire and grounding it and it then goes to empty. There is only one wire on it so I assume the tank is grounded to...

    I just realized I put drivers door it's the passenger door if that matters
  11. door lock

    My 49 F1 has a pluged hole on the drivers side for a door lock. I took the panel off and tried to look inside , couldn't see much. The replacement locks I see that you can buy just show a straight bar. Is there more to this , it obviously isn't like a house door lock. And just how do you install...
  12. Hello Everyone
