Re: Locked up!

Just got back from a short ride to make sure everything was still working the same as it did before the lockup. Everything seems to be working as before.

1934 U joint lube

I want to add pack the universal joint behind the transmission in my 1934 with corn head grease. Will I have to remove the floor boards in order to add the grease?

Thanks Kevin. This rebuilt generator was advertised as fitting 33,34,35,36 and I think 37. I spoke to the seller yesterday about the noise. He thinks it may be the fan belt slipping because of the...

Re: 6V generator

I don’t want to send this generator back if there is a chance that it’s just a matter of running it for a while. Tomorrow I’ll install it and run it for a bit.

6V generator

I just bought a ďrebuilt ď 6V generator from a fellow on EBay. It looks real good but it has a loud squeal when turned by hand. Should I send this generator back?

Re: Napa ech fa5

So Jim, is the NAPA IH 200 a .36 mfd condenser? If not is there one that you would recommend that will still maintain the original look?
