It is a capacitor but I don't believe that I have seen it on the fuel sender.

I can't figure out why a capicitor would be attached to the sending unit of the fuel tank

That is more information than I had to work with, but the thing on it looks like a resistor or capacitor, if it were just to ground, why would it need the added part?
It ties in to the top of the sencing unit and goes to ground on the tank.

You need to get a broom Handel and try a couple of lengths 30” & 32” are the most common. But you need to know what steering wheel you’re going to use. The dish of your steering wheel will add length to your column.

Most go with a 30 inch, it's what Ididit recommends for a 56 and what I have in both of mine

I'm pretty new to leaf springs. Can i get shackle pins and bushings new locally on the cheap for my '49 F3, or do i have to pony up the 120-140 bucks american plus shipping, duty etc to get the reproductions from DennisCarpenter?

Springs

I ordered shackle pins ECT. For my F-1 from LMC.com easily and for a reasonable price. U might check with them.

Those are F1/F2 only and more expensive to boot. If i was paying american dollars without duty or the international shipping it'd be about 120 bucks, which would be fine. But since i'm in canuckistan it's looking north of 200, which is unreasonable as all hell for 8 bolts and some bushings.

I'll phone the local offroad shops, maybe they'll have something that'll work.
