Re: 34 ford using WIRING

The wiring change would be the Y wire that the wiring diagram shows attached to one terminal of the ammeter gets connected directly to the YB wire (from the generator). Then a new wire is connected...

Re: R10 overdrive compatibility

Ol Ron, that was mostly junk yard, LOL. The Ford axle was a 38 I had laying around, the 9 inch parts came out of a pickup I salvaged. The center section is an interesting story. It is a unit I had...

Re: 34 ford using WIRING

Ya, if you are going none stock it would really be best to go voltmeter vs ammeter. They wire up a little different, but we can help you with that. A voltmeter is much safer.

Re: 34 ford using WIRING

If you look at the original 34 wiring diagram, the alternator wire will be the same as the one that goes between the ammeter and the outout, the YB wire. The heavy battery cable that goes to the...

Re: 34 ford using WIRING

Assuming your going to a later generator (or alternator) for the 12v, it would connect to the B terminal of the voltage regulator for a generator. On an alternator with internal voltage regulator,...

Re: Need your advice for new engine

rpm = (mph x Rear End Ratio x 336) / Tire Diameter

Guessing some numbers, 4:11 rear axle and 28 inch dia tires.

rpm = (60 mph x 4.11 x 336) / 28 = 2,960

Don't see where you are getting the...

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

I'd be interested in see this setup as well, seems I have some things to learn about MIG welders! I have no idea how this could work short of using a completely different line from the machine.

Re: Chevy distributor in flathead v8

Charley NY was the go to guy for the Chevy distributor conversions, but I believe he is going them in batches and just sold out.

Re: Temp Gauge Adjustment

Wouldn't think that would damage the gauge, the sender is basically a controlled short to ground. But I don't really know if putting 6-7 volts through the gauge would damage it or not. There are...

Re: Removing steering wheel center cap

I'm sure it would come off prying it, if you pried hard enough. It would be getting it back on that would be difficult! :eek:

Re: Temp Gauge Adjustment

The 1.5v battery (D Cell) is a modern test that mimics the suggest Ford test. Fords is a little more elaborate but the same concept. Ford test uses a voltmeter across the gauge and a variable...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

I did a little bracket racing, didn't like it at all. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Re: R10 overdrive compatibility

I used a V8 center quick change (Halibrand) but did an axle conversion. I used Ford 9 inch axles with the 5 1/2 on 5 bolt pattern.

And a T5z.

I did mine the hard way, just because I wanted to,...

Re: Electrical Issue advice

Take a look at the wiring diagram. I would disconnect one circuit at a time until you find the one which is causing the arc at the battery.

Re: Need your advice for new engine

You can install a T5 transmission, I would use close ratio gearing [2.95 1st gear). There are several threads here on the barn on using a T5 with the original torque tube rear end.

Re: What Gasoline that has NO ethanol in it?

If it's needed, most street flatheads do not run high enough CRs to require high octane fuel. And most stock engines run fine on very low octane fuel, which is what they were designed for.
