Re: Top Prop Lock Washer

I have a '31 Cabriolet and was never sure how to properly install those lock washers. They just didn't make any sense to me how they would lock the nut---when the tab is folded unto the nut both the...

Re: Tractor Supply Coil

Exactly right Purdy! :D



While you're at it get yourself some W-18 plugs, open up the gap some, use the "B" distributor cam for more dwell and the flamethrower 40KV coil for some added spark,...

Don't know if the Canadian cabbies were different, but here's a couple of pictures that I got from Norm L. for a 68B, USA version.

Re: How to Start the Model "A" shown in 45 seconds

Really dumb way to hand crank!! A backfire would have planted his face into his motometer permanently! Always one handed pulling up and not wrapping your thumb around the crank.

Re: Late 1931 Ford A Model Coupe Dash

When I ordered a dash lamp assembly for my early 1931 68B Cabriolet there were two styles available, and of course, I ordered the wrong one! Rather than return it I simply shortened the bracket to...

Re: Lighting for speedometer and gas gauge

No bad ground or bad connection---the incandescent 12V bulb that I originally had in there burned bright and HOT (for the last 40 years).


12V LED bulb now burns bright and COOL! :cool:

Re: Lighting for speedometer and gas gauge

I am running 12V and I tried the 24V bulb you suggested some time ago. Total waste of time as that bulb barely made the filament even glow!



Instead, I replaced it with a 12V LED bulb...

Re: Reducing Fumes and Noise

Anybody know of a Fumaze type setup made for a Model B? As you may know, the Model B oil fill tube is much larger in diameter than the Model A.

Re: Problem with alternator

Well, problem solved, for now....:o

Swapped back to the old alternator. Negligible discharge at idle and charges good and tapers off, so no problem with the regulator. Maybe the squeaking...
