General Discussion / Radio replacement advice please
« Last post by mb53nut on November 29, 2020, 09:38:05 PM »
Hello everyone,
I have to end silence in my 1953 170 Vb as it has no radio. It is still original 6 volt system. Can anyone render any advice as what system can be installed under the dash and not in the glove box so as no to to make it look out of place. Probably Retrosoud and two speakers with 6 to 12 volt converter and fuse. Any better ideas ? I am at a loss as to what speakers to use and how to attach them.   
Thank you,

This may be nothing, you noted you were on a trip, were you traveling at a higher elevation then where you reside?

What is the difference between 170V and 170S sedan door glass.  I see the part numbers are 10-136-725-00-10 V and 12-136-725-00-10 S.

Absolutely a Cabriolet A, B, or Roadster frame. This is the correct frame for these cars.

I have two suggestions. First, check the fuel selector valve and make sure you have it in the correct position. Likely you do if there is not a restriction in the line. Next, remove the top of the fuel pump. There is a screen filter that catches the sediment from the tank.  Your fuel pump may have a push lever to work the pump. Work the lever to see if fuel is flowing with the fuel pump cover removed. You can also do this by turning the engine over with the starter. you can also crack the fuel line to the carburetor and crank the engine. Fuel must come out. If not you likely have a failed fuel pump. Simple to repair with a repair kit. Finally check the carburetor float and valve system once you know fuel is coming out of the fuel pump. Start at the source and work from the source forward in the system.

Did you check the fuel float in the carburetor? Maybe it does not open and so the carb is not filled and works with the extra poured fuel only?
