Re: Voltage to points

Following up on this thread: I have gotten a good education on ignition resistance theory from all you good folk's comments and facts. In looking for an amp meter I could depend on, on ebay I found...

Re: What do you think?

Proper clutch adjustment and the viscosity of the transmission oil help slow the clutch disc to minimize first gear grinding. Depending on where you live, you might consider changing the transmission...

Re: T85 transmission question

As stated by those above, The clutch disc is spinning at engine RPM when you press the clutch. The parasitic drag of the transmission is supposed to slowly stop the disc from spinning. It should stop...

Re: difference in 6 volt and 12 volt ignition ?

I sounds like you are on the right track. The Bosch "blue coil" #00012 made in brazil is listed to have 3.4 ohms resistance. You could use any coil with 1.5 primary resistance with a 1.8 ohm ballast...

Re: SBC / 8BA distributors

I have your advance adjuster in mine and I have used it. I have an L100 in my 276" 8BA. On deceleration (like approaching a stop sign in high gear) my car "surges" or "bucks" from about 12-1300 rpm...

Re: Crazy Tachometer Behaviour

I bought an Autometer tach that had your symptoms with a pertronix unit and spiral core wires. AM tech said it was RF interference and a shielded pick up wire would stop it. It didn't, so I put...

Re: Voltage to points

Thank you for the very helpful information. We all seem to be on the same page as far as the amount of resistance. I'm going to order a Fluke multimeter that will measure up to 10 amps and try to...

Re: Voltage to points

I don't mind swapping to the Ford coil, but the resistance measures the same. Do you have the resistance value of the wire feeding your Falcon coil?

Re: Voltage to points

I had a Pertronix unit in the distributor at one time using this coil. The name doesn't mean anything, just the ohms. I have a few more coils on the shelf, one being an old Ford yellow top coil, and...

Re: Voltage to points

Jack, thank you for that perspective and it certainly makes sense. Those readings were close to the advertised values for the ballast and the coil and what I got from checking with a Fluke meter....

Re: Voltage to points

I tried to check the running amps at the coil with an older Craftsman clamp type digital DC amp meter and it just jumped around between 1 and 3 amps. I then used a harbor freight digital meter in...

Thanks Koates, I'll get that reading tomorrow before changing the capacitor.

Re: Voltage to points

I have another capacitor I'll try and see if it changes the voltage to the points.

Thanks for the direction, I hadn't suspected a capacitor issue.

Re: Voltage to points

Resting battery voltage was 12.3v. With key on, points closed battery read 12.1V. The 5v at the coil was taken using a cheap analog meter and a digital meter. So the capacitor could be responsible...

Re: Voltage to points

I did measure it, with a Fluke meter. It read 1.4 ohms.

How do the voltages at the coil and points look?

I have a converted chevy distributor in my 8BA. After 3-4 thousand miles the contacts look rough. I filed/reset them and it's running good again. Wondering why they didn't last, I went to looking...

Re: Fan clearance issue

thank you. I have a pulley out of a '52 F2 that has a lot more space between the two pulleys. It might not be original, don't know.
