Re: 6 Volt to 12 Volt for Headlights only?

I have a few 6v to 12v converters, and vice versa.

I have had mixed experience with them.

Select about double the current rating you need, say a 10A output unit for a 6v heater.

Re: starting problem after sitting 1947

I had a similar problem a few months ago. Turned out one of the fuel pump check valves had dislodged itself.

Re: Rear panhard rod 39 merc

By themselves, tube shocks at an angle don't help much when you have long shackles.

Don't ask me how I know:o

Re: Rear panhard rod 39 merc

Some early speed catalogs offered them in conjunction with long rear shackles for lowering.

Long rear shackles without a sway bar and there's never a dull moment. Like a labrador on linoleum

OK, lets see how good my memory is (it's been a while since I have done any electrical figgerin').

As I said earlier, I'm looking to do a12V conversion and don't want to damage the 6V top motors....

Re: Wiring Dash and instrument cluster 1940

I have installed a few looms for mates lately. Having the gage cluster out of the car at least means you can clean up the gages (and saves my ageing back a little too)

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

I'll get a pic in the next day or so. The 12V window motor is a good idea. I'll have to check the torque rating.

Many thanks.

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

The autolite spec sheet rates the motors as 2 oz.ft, 4000-5000 RPM and 29-34 amps each on 6v.

This is probably full load or locked rotor current, but the system is pulling a lot for a simple...

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

From what I can see, the systems looks very similar, but the 41 has two motors of course. What threw me was that the system installed in my car has no relays, just a large multi pole switch.

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

Many thanks for the schematic. The 41 is different to the 54 in that it has no control relays that I can see. One switch (many terminals) and two motors.

Quite a few big wires. I'll just get off...

Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

All,

Can anyone assist? I'm looking for a wiring schematic for a 41 Ford electric convertible top.

This is not a hydraulic pump/ram system like later models. There is a motor either side...
