I am finishing up a 12 volt conversion on Grover, but I have a question: I
used an instrument voltage regulator to accomplish the voltage drop to the
gauges, but now the needles pulse, and I don't think the temp gauge is
reading accurately any more. By "pulse", I mean the gauge needles jump up a
couple of degrees, then slowly fall back to their original positions. The
temp gauge sits about 1/4 of the way up from cold as soon as I start the
truck. I am not counting out a faulty temp sender, though, since it is at
least 25 years old.
I used a Sorensen part # IVR1 regulator, which is the unit used in Ford
trucks between '65 and '69. Could it be I just used the wrong part, or is
this normal for what I did? if it's supposed to do that, I can live with
it.

Ok all you Ford guru's

I have sucessfully gotten the 302 into my 51 f-1, the only problem is
that I don't any exhaust
manifold on the driver side of the truck. There just isn't any room for
it to exit near the firewall
(thats where the manifold exits on the 1983 302 I have.) It hits the
center of the steering box no matter where I put it. Does anyone know
if Ford made a manifold for the 302 (possibly in a 4x4 or truck) that
exits toward the Center of the manifold or between the last two
cylinders??

Thanks
Bill

It sounds like the regulator is switching on and off. Can it be
adjusted in any way or a small resister put in front of it?

Hey Paul, welcome to the club. I have been actively looking for a visor as
well for my 53 Panel. I know they make a visor for the pickup models issued
in Fomoco boxes because I've seen'em. The panel truck has a higher roof
line above the windshield. Not sure if this will cause a problem with a
standard p'up visor. Anybody on the same page?....
