Re: hunting a ghost problem in my '47

I've heard that the quality of Skip's coil rebuilds are declining. This is from a couple people who have gone back to a cylinder coil with great results.

Re: hunting a ghost problem in my '47

Replaced the condenser this Spring. But sometimes the new ones have an issue. Easy enough to carry one and when the car craps out change it. That could make the ghost appear.

Re: 1947 back up light switch bracket

Merc42 thank you. That is a simple bracket and hard to believe someone reproduces it. I will check out support that holds the shift arm to see if I can imaging how it fits.
