Re: Replacing typical rust areas on the 1930 Model A truck

I have had a Miller 110V MIG for decades, works great on panels. I often wish I had a TIG much easier to control the heat, so I am told.

If I were starting over and knowing what I know today,...

Re: 29 Woodie for sale

Here is a pic of a '30-'31 hinge. It has three tabs that slip into the door post. The hinge is also continuous and is spot welded to the part with the tabs.

Re: 4 post lift

They seem to understand that some customer prefer to buy USA, and a brand name matters. My though is they bought the "Backyard Buddy" brand for it's reputation, so are not going to change the Made...

Re: Repro 1930-31 Front Fenders

Never put a repo panel in that didn't need some work. Original iron for that matter either.

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

So I have received a 40amp diode, it's a stud mount, How much heat should I expect from this diode if we are running say 20 amps @12 volts.

Re: Station Wagon Owners

I had to cut an angle, 30ish degrees, on the end of the boards that butt into the short edge of the hump. Just enough to get it to set flat onto the bottom of the floor. Not sure if that is what...

Thanks to both of you. I am looking at increasing the wattage needed, looking at 20 amp peak @12 Volts. I know an alternator would likely make a better choice, but I want the look of the Generator....

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

How many amps will an original generator put out at 12V? I have read that the 6V generator will output ~22 amps. If 22 is right then should we only expect ~10 amps out at 12V.

Do I have the...

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

Sparky, so the generator needs no modifications to run the 12V system, simply re-polarize it for negative ground?

Re: PV Ford

They were bought by Millworks Hot Rod. They moved over next to Cutters Autobody, still in Tewksbury. Vic still is working there, I think Tuesday thru Thursday.
