Re: 1948 F1 rear glass dimensions

I just noticed this post. If you still need the info I can measure my old one. I bought a new won from LMC truck but the size was a little too big to fit the opening. ( too high) . I had one made...

Re: Condenser Capacitiance.

MGC .. Hope this will help ... its part of a presentation I did for my grandaughters science class last Feb. It shows the charge and discharge paths for an ignition coil and how the currents flow.

Re: Best source 1932 Running Board covers?

I made a handfull,of "washers" out of 5/16 or 3/8 steel tubing ( I forget), about .1 thick to put along the ends and bottom to prevent the rubber from "squishing" out when the bolts were tightened.

Re: Carb spacer

Does any one know the trade offs and pros/cons of a spacer which maintains the two barrel isolation vs one which combines the 2 holes into one?

Re: Fuel gauge intermittent

The power and current values associated with the sender units are too high to to use a small variable resistor to calibrate the unit. Power dissipation can be as high as 1.2 W and .3A respectively...

48 F1 Back Glass Too Big

I bought a new rear window for my 48 F1 and its too big to fit the opening. Its about 1/16 to 1/8 too wide along the bottom compared to the old one. The old one with the new gasket fits the opening....

Re: school me about diodes

40 CPE .....Below is a table showing all the possible L & R signal light conditions, and the desired output for the 3rd light. Is this what you expect to happen?

Yours is kinda like mine with the offset. Maybe that's just the way they were. I'll take a PIC and post. Back when I was a kid a piece of the jacketing broke off the choke cable and it was...

Re: Resistor voltage drop.

Re: Resistor voltage drop.

Hi Kevin ….
Me again. The point you make about excessive current when the engine is off and the points are closed is a good one for ignition systems that have ballast resistors with a positive...

Re: Resistor voltage drop.

Hi Kevin ...


Your right that the apparent current is lower when the engine is running, but not because the peak current is less (as defined by the battery voltage divided by the total circuit...

Re: Resistor voltage drop.

As I mentioned in post 5 there will always be an error in the measured voltages when making them on a running engine . This applies to measurements made with an ANALOG meter where the meter movement...

48 F1 transmission mount

Anyone out there have any experience with the LMC transmission mount (45-0330)? It's pretty inexpensive relative to others. Also does it include the molded rubber pad on the bottom?

Re: Resistor voltage drop.

Make sure not to make any voltage or current readings with the engine running as you will get false readings. This is because of the points opening and closing casing the volt/ammeter to read the...

Re: 49 F 1 Cowl Vent Seatant

Ross ... Your gasket is way "beefier" than mine. Where did you get it, and how long ago?
