Re: Coil + or -

True and today I was told by a club member some of the vendors have ran out of stock on the Nu-Rex tester. The vendor told him I don't think more will be made... :confused:

Re: Coil + or -

This is what 100IH is talking about. Read page 390 in the Service Bulletins. Ford changed the wires which placed the ammeter in the ignition circuit. Just to not confuse the Nu Rex polarity tester...

Re: Main Wiring Harness 1929 Questions

Like Bob C said, most of these aftermarket wire harness are made for a 30-31 stoplight switch mounted to the backside of the crossmember. Therefore the wires did not need to be as long as they would...

Re: model B engine

Try this for an explanation of the CAMSHAFT. The CAMSHAFT gear position is in a different location on a B from an A obviously because of the distributor. The timing pin location has nothing to do...

Re: installed a new 6:1 head now a tapping noise

Re: Coolant Debris Looks Like RTV

I had a clear housing Gano, but found it not all that beneficial over the metal housing. Also I installed mine after getting back my machined shortblock, a lot of engine rebuilders that do machine...

Re: Move Pinion forward and back per Les Andrews

Model A differentials aren't as critical as far as gear mesh, compared to modern and high pressure use. My past experience with differentials has been Construction Equipment. You better make sure if...

Re: Color of the engine

The Model A Paint and Finish Guide has a chip "Engine Green" in it. If you didn't mind paying the price for the guide, that would get you close to what you want. They do not list a code number.

Re: Coolant Debris Looks Like RTV

I would say the black scaly deposits could be from Rust 911 or Evaporust. Evaporust makes Thermocure or something like that to help get rid of rust. Obviously the Copper RTV is coming from when the...

Re: Oil Pan baffle

Don't drop it on anything. That's caveman. Do this... It pops right out with a clamp and a piece of wood.

Re: Engine oil measuring rod

That depends on if the block has the rear cam bearing drilled from the valve chamber. Also if the drain pipe and valve cover is early or late.

Re: Something drifternt

I worked on most of the smaller 2 stroke from 53, 71, 92, and some 114's. I was so glad to see them gone. Might be one of the reasons I'm completely deaf on one side and hard hearing on the other. ...

Re: Engine Stand

I made my own adapter for the side of the engine partly due to having the heavier HF engine stand. The pipe size is bigger for the rotating piece.

Re: Dizzy side hole

I would only guess without seeing a picture of all of them. The last one 3/4" wide possibly an older one. The others will give you more advance timing range. Either way Ford advised to not trim...
