Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

You should see a difference on the ammeter between headlights on and headlights off. Think you are close to maxing out the generator at idle with the lights on. When driving the battery provides...

Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

You are probably not putting out enough amperage at idle to feed the headlights and the ignition. Does the car have an ammeter?

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

With the half bellhousing the blocks are the same length. The difference is the front bolt-ons. You will need the motor mount adapters to get the correct height and side-to-side spacing.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

I use one that I made that is similar to the one Stumpy's sells. Very similar to the one I use on 5.0 FI engines.

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

As long as any modification made are easily reversed what difference does it make? Not sure what all the concern is with modifications/upgrades that do not damage the original vehicle.

Re: 1936 Ford flathead - is a fuel additive required

Question, is a different octane rating method being used? There are different methods to calculate octane, does that account for the higher octane rating? In the US they are normally 87, 89 & 91...

Re: 34 coupe seat info please

I have his pattern set somewhere, was going to use it and then my son decided to head in a different direction. I could try and find them if you have any interest.

Re: 34 coupe seat info please

Someone on the HAMB made a pattern off an original a while back. I ordered a set from him. If you are interested in that as I remember there was a fairly detail thread also.

Not sure if this...

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - Electric Radiator Fan

Also be sure you have the amperage to run the fan, some of them draw more amps than you have available with a generator.

Re: 35 transmission

You still need to know what gears are in the original case. If the tower was changed it is possible the gears were changed. And if not, that later tower will not be working correctly.

Re: 1937 and 1938 cowl sides ?

That would seem odd as the is so much difference between 38 std and 38 dxl front ends. But I have never compared a 37 to a 38 dxl.

Re: Low cranking voltage

Did you put anything on the connections when you put it back together? A little grease can help with oxidation and corrosion.

Re: starter/sol II

If you jumped it across the solenoid and just ended up with sparks either the starter is locked up internally or something is locking up the engine.

Re: Question about clutch ball bracket/bushing

It depends, sometimes the ball is worn and no longer spherical.

I know nothing about this year/model axle! But is there any chance it has inter axle clips?

Re: Backfire

Nice wagon! Are you sure the vacuum advance is working? With your new timing light you should be able to check that.

Re: Right hand output shaft removal

The rear axle has to come apart, the axles are removed toward the center section (after the axle housing is separated from the center section). This is what an axle looks like.
