Re: Airtex E8902

The part number you have quoted E8902 is for the AIRTEX low pressure 6 volt pump. The pump in your picture does not appear to be an AIRTEX and may be a CARTER or another make and may also not be a...

Re: Radio Static

The noise you are hearing in your radio is caused from the transmission of RF (radio frequency) transmissions from your spark plug wires. You will need a resistor type suppressor on the end of each...

Re: 1933 Ford foot starter

Nothing wrong with the original foot starter switch provided it is wired up with the correct heavy gauge battery cables. No need for a solenoid. It acts as a good anti theft device because no modern...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

As most of you fellas now know that nearly all new modern cars have plastic fuel tanks in the rear so I would recon that they have been engineered and tested to the max. So plastic fuel containers...

Re: Dual Exhaust on 34 coupe

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I have for years carried a 5 litre plastic fuel container behind the back seat in my 1934 Ford 4 door sedan. The screw on lid and seal works perfectly so no smells and never a problem. Its tied down...

Re: 1933-34 Steering Column Tube

The first 10,000 approx. 1933 Fords had a steering shaft 41 3/4"" long and all other 33-34 Fords are 42"long. Not sure on the tubes. Apparently those early cars the steering wheel rim was too close...

Re: 47 generator rear bushing

You can put too much oil in the generator oiler with the result being oil all over the brushes and commutator which will stop the gen working. Just a drop or two every thousand miles, that's ONE DROP...

Re: 47 generator rear bushing

Just another tip, don't have that generator drive belt too tight. About 1 1/2"play in the middle length. Too tight will wear that bush out and don't forget a drop of oil now and then. Regards, Kevin.

Re: 47 generator rear bushing

BOY Henry that armature is cooked. Did you not but a drop of oil in that end bush now and then which may have prevented this outcome. Hope your rebuilt generator is really rebuilt. Good luck,...

Re: 47 generator rear bushing

Hi Henry, nice to see you are still alive mate. Make sure you lube that new bush before you press it in the end housing. Sit it vertical on one thumb and fill to the top with engine oil and then...

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

Re: Basic trouble shooting 32 generator

Grounding the lead to the cut out is not the correct information, so don't do that. What Brian said is OK providing the cut out is an original Ford unit and not a Fun Projects voltage regulator...

Re: 1934 Missing -Covering My Bases

Another item to check or replace is the flex fuel line that connects between the fuel pump and the end of the metal fuel line on the firewall. These do crack and perish and can become partially...

Re: 1934 Missing -Covering My Bases

Gas cap on a 34 ford does not require venting. The tank vent is built into the fuel gauge sender unit if it is an original one. Yes, fit a new cork gasket on your later fuel pump filter bowl. By pass...

Re: Rebuilding Early FORD V8 Distributor

Yes, a very good video but there is more to a rebuild than what was shown. For instance no lubrication inside the distributer was shown. You cant put it together DRY like that. Different lube...

Re: 1938 Headlamp Changeover

Re: 1938 Headlamp Changeover

Just wondering why you removed the relay after you fitted the original headlamps. The relay could have helped the voltage on those lights just like it did on the sealed beams. Regards, Kevin.

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

With the distributer timing points closed so that the coil has power on it then check the voltage into the resistor and then out of it. The old ford ignition switches give trouble with bad...
