Power Antenna Switch Removal
#1
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Ken Hill
Anyone have an illustration of the power antenna switch showing how it is assembled/removed from the dash (I have a 56 Clipper)? The illustration in the Service Manual is not detailed enough. I'm able to remove the knob, but I can't figure out how to get to the hex nut.

This happens to me quite often. I usually just pull out slow. Most other cars will stop when they see me leaving - the benefit of driving an eye-candy car!

56 Clipper Gen Light Troubleshooting
#3
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Ken Hill
I'm hoping to find some guidance here. The generator dash light is off (or very dim) when idling, and it turns on or gets brigher when accelerating and driving at cruising speed. When the engine is off, my multimeter shows the battery with 12.5 volts; when the engine is idle or when I rev the engine the voltage at the batter drops to 11.76. The maintenance manual says this is normal function of the generator; however, the generator light should not stay on. This is relatively new - within the past couple of months. I haven't been too worried because the battery is not loosing its charge.

I've been reading about the maintenance manual on troubleshooting the generate and voltage regulator. I've inspected all the wires to the the regulator and generator; they appear fine (no cracks in the insulation). I cleaned all the connections to the regulator and generator. I also oiled the generator. This helped dim the generator light while driving, but it still is on.

What should I check, clean, and/or replace next?

Great! I'll contact them. Do you have a technical drawing of the tubing between the fuel pump and carburetor? I have a 56 Clipper.

Stoplight Switch Rebuild
#5

Just can't stay away

Ken Hill
I recently replaced the stoplight switch (see attached pictures) to my 56 Clipper. The replacement switch got the leveling system working again. Can this switch be rebuilt? If so, does someone have a recommendation on where I can get a rebuilt kit and/or a technical exploded drawing?

Fuel Filter Rebuild Kit for 56 Clipper
#6
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Ken Hill
I'm looking for a rebuild kit for the fuel filter (see attached images) that is between the fuel pump and carburetor.

I'm also looking for the metal tubing that runs from the fuel pump to this fuel filter and then to the carburetor.

I'm looking for recommendations on where to purchase a rebuild kit for the fuel pump on my '56 Clipper. I have the Maintenance Manual, but I would appreciate any additional insights or instructions on rebuilding the fuel pump.

PROBLEM SOLVED: I replaced the stoplight switch. That fixed a couple of issues. Now, the leveling system works (with the 7 second delay) and the brake lights don't stay on after turning off the engine.

I had the brakes serviced 3 years ago. The fluid level in the power brake reservoir was low; so, I add more to fill the it up. I'll take the car in to get the brakes checked and the lines flushed.
