Has anyone ever replaced the power valve in the ford 2100 carb. on the 260 engine ? I have 2 power valves in a collection of carb parts but there are no ID marks or numbers on them. The workshop manual lists a No. 75 Green for low altitude ( below 5000 feet ).
Is there a way of testing the water temperature sender unit before removing it. Also if it does need replacing, can it be removed from its mounting block in situ, or is it likely to be seized requiring the work to be done at the workbench and thus having to drain the coolant ?

Can any member suggest a supplier that can supply good quality condensers. My first Tiger in...
