Re: 1932 V8 standard roadster update

Love them all! Very interesting about this, "very likely the oldest surviving '32 phaeton and likely among the six oldest surviving '32s as whole cars"


Wonderful pictures and cars David!

Re: 2.5 ohm ignition resistor

Check the voltage when cranking. If it is greater than 4 volts calculate what you need for a resistor to get you just under 4 volts. V = IR

Either a direct wire with or without this resistor will...

Re: 2.5 ohm ignition resistor

They have to be wired in series, end to end in a line, to get 2.5 ohms.

Re: 2.5 ohm ignition resistor

That's pretty high. You may have to add 2 resistors in series to get 2.5 ohms.

I just searched and could only find aluminum cased ones like this:

Re: Bullet connector crimping tool

Yes, the question is do the Buchanan crimpers have a large enough throat for the bullet connectors? The one I have for Deutsche connectors will not work.



Just trying to caution anyone...

Re: Bullet connector crimping tool

The throat looks too small to accept the bullet head to me but you can only see so much from the pictures.

I have one that I have used for Deutsche pins.

Re: PERTRONIX Ignitor Ignition 1940 ford Helmet Dist

Why not add a resistor so the total resistance is about 1.5 ohms?


V = I X R



6/1.5 ohms = 4 amps

Re: '32 Rear hood latch location

Just measured the other side (right side) and got 3-1/4" for front CL and the same 3-7/16" for the back.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Atmospheric pressure only, that's why whoever is helping doesn't let the pedal up until you close the bleeder and tell them to let up. If not you suck air back into the slave cylinder and/or line...

Re: '32 Rear hood latch location

I just measured 3-5/16" for the front and 3-7/16" for the rear, inside top innermost frame rail top to center-line of bracket holes. I have a stock frame and fenders.

Re: Brake Adjustment

I agree with Paul except pump a lot more than 2 or 3 times. The hole letting fluid in and bubbles out of the Master is very small.

When you tested the distributor did it included your cap and rotor? I had trouble a few months back where my 32 started missing intermittently one day and finally quit. I had to get a...

Re: Problem Removing Steering Wheel

You can drill and tap the steering wheel hub, I suggest 5/16"-24, and then use one of these pullers. They're available at any auto parts store and reasonable.
