Re: Need for early condensers?

Agreed, and that would be the spec's I would be looking for in a reproduction.

Re: Good coil

It somewhat depends on how everything set up. With a by-pass wired up when the starter is energized full voltage is applied to the coil. Cranking the starter lowers the voltage to the coil and the...

Re: Good coil

Bosh coils seem to have a good rep.

Re: Need for early condensers?

That's what engineers are for, if it was simple anyone could and would be doing it! The best reference point is to look at what the factory engineers did. They spent a lot of time, money, effort and...

Re: Need for early condensers?

There is more to this than protecting the points. The condenser and the coil form an LC circuit.

"The LC circuit produces a damped, oscillating current which bounces energy between the...

Re: How tight is tight and how loose is loose

The belts only need to be tight enough to prevent slippage.

Re: Electrical question on horn on 36

Just a better way to do it, same reason Ford started using them. BUT, it will work as well as the original 36 horns do wired direct.

Re: Alternator or not?

That should answer the question, go with a generator.

Re: Electrical question on horn on 36

Sure you can hook up an auxiliary horn, but there are a number of considerations. Is your car 6v or 12v for one. The original horn(s) were direct wired from the starter switch hot terminal. You...

Re: gear ratio

Look at a speed vs rpm calculator. You can change tire size or rear axle ratio.

Re: Well...this ain't good

Need to be careful with the torque values if using a lubricant such as anti-seize. Most torque values are dry and it is easy to over torque when using a lubricant! As a kid I torqued spark plugs...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

As I remember, the distributor miss-aligned and plug wiring. Believe there were multiple threads going on the same topic.

Re: Alternate to MAC Gas Tank Sending Unit

You don't need a separate reducer for each gauge, that is one way to do it. Or you can use one reducer for all the gauges like Ford did. Many do prefer the separate reducers, but not required.

Re: Well...this ain't good

Some of the early 4.6s had a sparkplug issue. I have put inserts in several of them with the engine in place. Fairly simple to do and great results.

Re: 21 stud timing marks ?

The gear should be marked. Sometimes it's a small dash mark. Any chance you put the gear on backward?

Re: All power all the time ?

I would refer to it as a path to ground, but whatever. You should be able to check the horns in place using a jumper wire. Jumper the wire that goes to the lighting control switch to ground and see...

Re: All power all the time ?

A lot of circuits on early Fords are hot all the time. Actually all most all, including the horns, are. The ignition switch controls the power to the coil and instruments.

Re: Radiator cap pressure AV8 build

Really no need to use a high pressure cap in the temperature range that flatheads run in. Sounds like your headed in the right direction, 185-195 is a great heat range.

Almost all of these foundry codes have been lost to history.

Re: Greasing a front spring on a 39 pickup

Not that I am aware of, but you can always load your own grease gun. I think it is easier to coat each leaf before assembling the spring. It should last a long time. Some time back I saw a formula...
