1940 Borg Glove Box Clock
#1

Gar
Hi- I am in search of a reasonable repair shop to fix a 6 VDC power post on my Borg glove box clock on my Super 8. Several shops that I talked to want to replace the internals with a quartz movement. Bobs Speedometer quoted me $180+
Can I simply just replace the motor with another Borg glove box clock of similar size from the 1930/40s?

Thanks for your suggestions
Gar

Probably should move this to the 'for sale' forum...

Steward Warner vacuum fuel pump

Could someone please tell me the correct thread opening sizes of the 90 degree connectors on the top of the fuel pump?

I took it off to rebuild the pump and now cannot find the 90 degree connect that goes from the fuel tank to the top of the fuel pump.

The pump is for a 1928 533 6 cyl and has eight holes on top. I tried a couple different connectors but I may have my FIPs and NPTs crossed...

If you have a picture of the pump with fitting sizes, that would be very helpful.

If I am not mistaken there is a vacuum "tee" near the vacuum fuel pump and then it goes to the wiper unit. You can plug the 'tee' at the fitting before the wiper motor and try it. The plug needs to be a tight fit.

If you still have the problem then eliminate the end of the tee by using a small aux gas tank. Also check and ensure the vacuum engine takeoff hose is tightly secured onto the engine.

Your issue could be that you have a pin hole or slight dry rot crack in any of your vacuum hoses. Even if you by pass the problem your engine most likely will still run lean and therefore run hot.

Best of luck.

I have used a product called heat shield on my 28. It works by reflecting the heat away from the the gas line. It has a Velcro like strip on the entire length so I can take if off for shows.

You could also look at shielding your pump but what surprises me is that increasing the pressure did not at least 'help' fix the problem. Did you measure the PSI at the pump output by the carb?

I also tried closes pins (spring loaded kind) but with no success.
