Re: Voltage to points

40cpe, YEP, you seem to have it all correct now. The current draw in the coil primary circuit is most important ,but most guys just overlook doing those tests. When the resistor is cold and its ohms...

Re: polarizing a generator

The instruction sheet that came with your regulator indicates it is for a type A circuit and therefore you cant use that regulator with any Ford generator made from 1939 onwards. Ford generators are...

Re: 1936 starter switch mounting

If your coil is original mounted on the distributor then it has to have the matching ford ballast resistor in line/series to the battery. The coil runs on about 4 volts, not straight 6 volts from the...

Re: ECH IC7 6 volt coil and 6 volt system

In your case I would run with the resistor in circuit. That way your distributor contacts will last longer. Current draw of coil varies depending weather you test with engine stopped or running. ...

Re: Voltage to points

Swap the Flamethrower coil for your yellow top Ford coil. Those yellow top coils are excellent coils and long lasting as well. My 1970 Ford Falcon 302 V8 still has its original yellow top fitted and...

Re: Voltage to points

Use an older analog ammeter and see what you get. Cheap digital meters do not always work very well on old cars unless it is a higher quality Fluke or such. I think 4.5 amps is on the high side and...
