I bought these to repair some Hella Fog lights. I think they were 5” diameter or thereabouts..

Thanks for the offers.  The center section of yours is much wider than mine (I wonder what diameter your light was?).  I have some music wire about the same diameter (been making some coil springs for another project) & think I'll try my hand at making one of these.

Here is the size I have. It might be right or possibly be bent to fit your application..

I think they may be the same clips found in the new style trailer lights at Tractor Supply Company.

Anyone have a crapped out light that would be willing to sell me a clip?

Re: Pepco Supercharger on Crosley Hotshot

Oops, forgot to mention.   I used a wide belt pulley from an old generator mounted onto the supercharger with the spacer.

The stock Crosley engine pulleys use a 5/8 wide belt.  The Pepco supercharger that I purchased came with a thin belt pulley.   Some people say you have to have a special double pulley installed on the generator that has both a pulley for the thick crank belt, and a separate pulley for the thin belt that originally came on the Pepco supercharger. 
I made a spacer to extend the supercharger pulley out about one half inch, using a longer bolt.  This spacer will allow the supercharger to run off the original wide crank belt (just a few inches longer).  Then I  added a generic idler pulley (with a sealed bearing) that was wide enough to accommodate the wide fan belt.  The idler pulley ensures maximum belt contact on the supercharger pulley (and generator),  no slippage at high rpms.
Works great!
Now if only I had the inclination to make my own exhaust header, to allow this supercharger to run unrestricted. 
Go for it.

I have a Fageol inboard boat setup with the pepco blower.  The ID tag on the side of the block states 45 cu in, 45 hp.  You should have something similar.  Will you please post more pictures showing more mounting details and the pulley belt drive arrangement.  Your set up looks very nice and tight.  I have always intended the Fageol engine and blower to be installed in my 1952 Super Sport.  The inboard set-up drives the blower from the flywheel pulley as probably yours did.

Re: PTO control lever

L.E. Hardee
 

I think all FOR's had the holes punched from the factory whether or not they were equipped with the pto or hydraulics.  My first FOR was as bare bones as you can get.  It was used as a tow vehicle for stocking trolley carts in a government GSA warehouse near Chicago.  They had two of them that were auctioned as surplus after they were retired.  I bought it from a guy from the East side of Chicago in 1971 who was the Cord reproduction dealer.  The 4/5 size fiberglass car that used a Corvair transaxle turned around in the front with steering added.  The FOR never saw the light of day during its working life.  It did not have a passenger seat, spare tire (but did have the bracket), any rear body, tail lights, or factory hitch.  Certainly did not have hydraulics or pto.  Yet the floor beside the driver seat was punched for all the levers and respective bolt holes.  If you really want fake levers, I believe I read in a posting maybe a year ago that someone had fabricated spares for sale when they made ones for their own use.
