Yes, there are two senders in their catalog for the 47. Tell them the number of holes in the mounting flange and you will get the right one.
The produced an EXACT replica of the original from the Atwater Kent catalog.. It had a lacquer coated float as per original. The lacquer dissolved very quickly in the ethanol fuel we have, so I had to pull the tank again. I did some research and found that gas tank sealer would work to coat the cork. I let them know my findings so if you order one, ask if they are using gas tank sealant now. I did not want to buy a gallon of gas tank sealer for such a small bit of use. Instead, I went to Summit Racing and bought a plastic fuel sender float. In installed it and no problems YTD!

I went to a swap meet at Ross Millers and had a chat with him about the car. His diagnosis was that the main bearings are worn. So, I will need to schedule a bottom end overhaul. He stated the engine did not have to be pulled. But, I am moving in a week and this is not the time. The engine holds 40 lbs around town, but trips are not an option right now until the work is done.

Yes, I remember the pics. Of course, you know this car has a slightly larger oil filter than the original one. So, I am sure the pan is in good shape. I did buy an original filter housing, but upon reflection, felt the upgraded filter housing was a better choice for the engines longevity.

No, the pic is not of Ross's car. I just got it from the internet.
The Uniscope is my favorite in the all years of the Nashs.
It matches the space age design of the car.

For those of you who do not know much about 1949 Nash Ambassadors, a few pics so you know what Ross is driving through the countryside. As I recall, it is a two door with the rear seat option. Ross, feel free to correct me..

For those like me who do not know what Micarta is:
Micarta industrial laminates are established as the premium phenolic thermoset materials in the industry. Micarta Phenolic sheet is a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin. These layers of laminations are usually of cellulose paper, cotton fabrics, synthetic yarn fabrics, glass fabrics or unwoven fabrics. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic.

I guess it was used because of resistance to heat?

The hubcaps on the 2106 are very sturdy and heavy. My right front hubcap is firmly attached but, I can rotate it with my hand when the car is at rest. It squeaks when the car is underway.
What is the best way to fix this? I thought about adjusting the "fingers" that hold it on but remember when the hubcap when spinning off into the forest and I saw $400 of hoardered gold evaporating into thin air! I did recover it but is has a greater share of "patina" now.

Any suggestions?
