Re: 8BA just died

There is nothing wrong and being dumb and happy.
Go buy a Chevy 1968 coil and resister and condenser and you will be on the road.
Save the muli meter for checking battery's.

If you remove the small wire to selinodse, then short to batt and see if it stops .

Re: 8BA Truck Starter Plate Question with Pics

You need to show the pan you are using.
I have a 1953 8rt and the bell is case iron and starter blots to it, only a small tin cover on bottom. Up to 52 looks like what you need.

Re: Bolts that hold backing plate 39 ford

My guess you are talking about the 4 bolts in back of trans. They hold the trans and rearend together. Special bolts would be found at trans builder
