Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

Depending on the model and condition of the various components there could be a lot of value there. The T5, the adapter and clutch setup, distributor, etc. It is just going to depend on the...

Re: On the horn now

Per the wiring diagrams, 1938 is the first year the cars started using a horn relay. The pickups and trucks did not use a relay until much later in time.

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

The load resistors are not too bad a price, you can get a 3 ohm for around the $3 - $4 range.

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

That relay (6v) has 22 ohms of resistance in the coil.

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

Looked up an automotive relay, and (as almost always :) ) you are correct, the resistance is higher than I thought. The 12v coils run in the 50 - 200 ohm range. The 6v relay coils are lower in...

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

This should read is not high enough resistance, correct?

Update: I am not correct here! The resistance in an automotive coil is in the 50-200 ohm range. Much higher that I thought it would be.

Re: On the horn now

If it's not the horns, it's the relay or the wiring. Try a short jumper across the horn relay itself between the power terminal and the horn terminal. This will connect the battery via the vehicle...

Re: On the horn now

Or the wiring. A jumper straight to the horn with the horn grounded will let you know if it's the horn. Everything else is removed from the circuit.

Re: On the horn now

The normal horn wiring is basically a direct connection to the battery, so no problem using a jumper direct from the battery. Easy connection point would also be the starter solenoid battery terminal.

Re: 37 engine in 34 truck

There are spacers made for this application, including the original ones Ford used when installing a later replacement block in the early frame. It is more than a height issue, the side to side...

Re: On the horn now

There should be three terminals on the horn relay. Power in from the starter solenoid, Ground wire to the horn button & the lead to the horn(s). Both horns should connect to the same terminal on the...

Re: 1950 Ford Tudor 8BA Flathead will not start.

I would forget the indexer and set the valves one at a time assuring each lifter is on the heel of the cam.

Re: Help with transmission selection

If you can locate the tag on the transmission it will ID the transmission for you. I see the chart I uploaded is not readable! But it is online.

Re: Let me ask another way

Good advice.

Adileo, was mainly interested in if the wiring is basically original with the turn-signal wiring added on.

Re: Let me ask another way

I'm not familiar with the LEDs that are setup for Pos ground. Goes the socket or the harness part you removed have anything to do with the LEDs functioning in a Pos ground system?

Re: 1950 Ford Tudor 8BA Flathead will not start.

A dead stop on the cylinder is a better way to determine TDC. You can do it without removing the head. Just find something to fit into the cylinder for the piston to stop against. A zip-tie works...
