Re: 6 volt ignition parts

I was referring to the style of the coils. Would have to check with Skip on what he can rebuild, but my guess would be about anything as far as OEM vs early replacement. It is my understanding about...

Re: 6 volt ignition parts

If you want an original coil it is. Modern high quality rebuilds work well.

Re: Rebuild Advice 8BA

You pressurize the combustion chamber and see if it will hold pressure. It will slowly leak down around the rings. If it is leaking down to quickly there is a leak somewhere.

Re: Noisy Rear Spring

Need to spread the leaves of the spring apart and lube them with something like SlipPlate. This is a one leaf at a time process and not that easy to do.

Re: 34 coupe GasTank Replacement

Just be aware that the replacement senders work completely differently than the originals and you will have to come up with a gage that will work with the reproduction sending unit. The originals...

Re: Vintage Heater

Having a shop pressure test the core is about all I know of to do.

Re: Fuel gauge sender mount holes

The reproduction senders have a different hole spacing than the originals. Also, I think the reproduction tanks are different. You have to make an adapter or modify them to fit.

Re: 6 volt ignition parts

6v can coils do not use a ballast resistor, the resistor is used with the original Ford style coil.

Re: Vintage Heater

Heater cores can be a safety issue if not in good shape. A friend of mine had a very nice 65 Comet. The heater core blew while he was driving spraying hot coolant on his legs! Caused him to loose...

Re: 1934 ford coupe Rear end to high

Longer shackles are really not a good idea on the early suspensions unless some type of pan bar is added.

Re: 1946 Mercury 12v Wiper Bench Testing Help.

I tried reading over the installation instructions, quickly, so not sure I totally understand them. But, it looks like it is grounded through the wiper housing, so anyway to get a ground from the...

Re: flathead engine temps?

Something along these lines have to be going on, don't think the radiator is heating up the coolant! :)

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

He checked that the mark on the cam gear lined up with the mark on the crank gear. The current question is if the cam gear is mismarked.

Re: flathead engine temps?

I would take the temp reading at the exit of the head where the radiator hose connects, the metal, not the hose itself. And the other reading at the inlet to the water pumps, again, the metal, not...

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

I think a better approach is to determine the problem before jumping to a solution. :)

Re: 52 F1 oil seal

I think it's to late to correct it now. For future reference, always mark a pinion nut before you remove it. The torque spec is all you have to go on now, most likely will be ok.

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

I think the claim is that it has a new harness, it is just connected incorrectly or there is a bad component in the circuit.

Re: 52 F1 oil seal

Just remember you're messing with the pre-load on the pinion. Need to mark the nut well and be sure it gets back to the same location.

Re: rear end identification

Don't think there is a lot of difference in the axles themselves. What are you attempting to figure out?

Re: rear end identification

Well, if it has the original backing plates, 37-38 were cable brakes and 39-40 were hydraulic.

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

I think the only way to really stop this is to install one of the seals that is made to fit where the torque tube connects to the axle center section. This is an aftermarket part made to address...
