Re: how did the 151 and 151A1 do brake lights

Well, On the bright side, there is no right or wrong on the wires. The switch is on or off so the wires can go either way.

Re: how did the 151 and 151A1 do brake lights

Those fittings are not all that easy to find. I have to agree with Horst, buy a new A2 switch and be done with it. Getting mad, upset and pissed off just makes the job go harder. All you accomplish is convincing yourself that the job is impossible, it simply CAN'T be done! Believe me, I have had man...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies, Part Deux

I get the impression that whomever wrote up those plaques does not have a real good grasp on the English language. Or not "veery" good at proofreading.

Re: how did the 151 and 151A1 do brake lights

Rick, I put the switch back on I had a hell of a time getting the damn thing put on right with the linkage and all and it doesn't work, impossible to do anything with it installed and I don't want to take those damn pedals out again so I was hoping to go around it and do it the A1 way, my banjo bol...

I was talking to Dave, he had said in another thread that he used the old parts with the new bushings from the set I sent him.

Re: Found on CL or FB - (Not Mine) 2021

The tongue on a 416 is not exactly light even unloaded but it all depends on how you load it. I pulled one with 144 20mm ammo cans 650 miles, half of which was in a snowstorm and the other half at 65 MPH with no issues at all. Same with my 116 trailers but they all have positive tongue weight. The v...

Re: how did the 151 and 151A1 do brake lights

If you used the original pedals and brackets why can't you put the original switch back on?

Re: M2 Half Track

I have been buying tap and die sets at auctions for a while and most of them are older, some are quite old. The quite old ones are also the sharpest. They were made out of REAL tool steel back then. I think most of the crap out there today is nothing more than case hardened mild steel. Now when you ...

Re: how did the 151 and 151A1 do brake lights

Like I said before, the A1 used a pressure switch in the fitting at the rear of the master cylinder. The fitting for the A1 and straight had one spot for the line and another for the brake light switch pressure fitting. You could go this route but you will need to find that special fitting. Or as Ge...

I know exactly where Ram's Rod Shop is. I have passed it many times. I used to deal with a truck place back in the same little park they were in, I see they are listed as closed permanently now. Covid killed another business. I like the play on words on the car name. BugNotti :lol: BTW, They were on...

Re: Found on CL or FB - (Not Mine) 2021

A trailer with zero tongue weight is usually very bad news! They tend to fishtail, sometimes to the point of losing control. That is called "tail wagging the dog" and the end result is never pretty. Kind of makes me wonder if that isn't why it is for sale.

Re: Emissions return to tank on Carb..

The correct fitting is the same as the fuel inlet fitting but on this one you can get away with a 90 degree 1/8" pipe thread fitting. That line is the vapor return line to the tank and is only there for the purpose of preventing vapor lock by allowing gas vapor in the line to return to the tank...
