During this Covid 19 lockdown isolation thingy, some friggin Muppet suggested polishing the Fleetwood.

OH, i don't mean, just "polish" the Fleetwood, I mean POLISH THE FLEETWOOD. (I'm not 100% sure, but it could've been me)

I'm now, 3 days into making the ol Fleety shine and i'm about half way.

I've taken to the grill with a toothbrush, even the trunk and hood badges got the toothbrush treatment.

Hoping to finished by Friday, if my bleeding finger tips and knackered shoulders hold up to complete the rest of it.

I've been listening to talk back radio during it too, so now I find myself shouting at the radio.

The sooner the men in the white coats arrive in the little rubber truck the better I think. I'm off to the funny farm soon.

They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha
They're coming to take me away, Ho-ho
Hee-hee-haa-haa
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those
Nice young men in their clean white coats and
They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!
You thought it was a joke
And so you laughed, you laughed,
When I had said that polishing the Cadillac,
Would make me flip my lid.
Right?
You know you laughed
I heard you laugh
You laughed, you laughed
And laughed and then you left but
Now you know I'm utterly mad
And..and...and
They're coming to take me awaaaaaaaaayyyyyy.

Same problem here in Sweden. My best friend asked if he could borrow my car for his daughters graduation so it at least would be something to remember.

Instant reply from me was of course "take it".

What year is the ford - mid 50’s ?

looks like you could use a new air cleaner filter so the thing can breath better

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 5 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
