Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Byron, things will get better I hope around 2021 next summer. I'm sure your mechanic can agree.

Re: I Can't Stop My Clutch Chatter On My '53!

Usually that was to burn off oil, you'll never burn in an alignment as the clutch disc and the pressure plate arms meet different every time. I'd look at adjusting the clutch arms as mentioned. or...

Re: In defense of 6 cylinders

I don't think anyone ever bashed the flat sixes. Not a lot of speed stuff (bore and mill) for flat sixes or ohv 223. I had a 53 with a first yr 215 ohv straight six. Bullet proof motor. Ya you...

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Lead acid batteries are fine if you like replacing them every few years. Used to buy batteries from a forklift place. Lead acid. Couple years of that and replacement... I bought a optima 6v. Never...

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Not to mention points. If you want a quick coil 6 volt bypass on startup. Maybe spend 13$ on a tractor 6v 4 pole solenoid.

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

The idea of using a 8v battery has been around forever. To me it seems like a easy "fix" to more problems.

Re: Another Huge Loss to me

Sorry to hear. I lost my pops in my early 30's. It is a very great thing you were able to share time together through out your years. Be well and cherish memories!

Re: 6 volt, positive ground boost help?

If your battery is discharging and you need a "boost" something is wrong with the charging system or the battery.


If you want a coil 6v "boost" on startup.

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

Tighten as best you can. then go back and tighten again. I'm not sure people ever torqued wheels before in the actual world. If it won't budge, carry a hammer or a mallet to knock the bar.

Re: Carburettor storage.

wait to rebuild it? Probably keep it out of the sun and vacuum seal it from air. Would be a thought.

Re: Voltage to points

makes sense a yellow top would work on a 12volt system with just a ceramic 6v resistor. As they kept the points and dizzies 6v on early yblocks and used a yellowtop coil.

Re: It RUNS ....and then it DIES....

I'd agree on looking at the condenser or coil as a warm/hot issue. Those cheep dial pressure gauges are pointless. I'd ditch it. Replace it with a fuel pressure gauge maybe. Or test the pressure.

Re: 38/39 pickup seat dimensions

well... what do you need? A seat? I guess I could take mine out and measure it. I believe a lot of guys use a 80s-90s caravan rear bench seat as a basic seat.

Re: OT - Winter Coming - "Skeeching"

Re: OT - Winter Coming - "Skeeching"

Great story. We used to as kids (10) take the old steel wagon wheels and run a pipe through it. Take a 2x16 and nail them to the board (couple 2x4s so you could stear the front with your legs) and...
