Re: Question about distributor/condenser for Ford Model A - 1930

Welcome,


Not an expert but, replace the condenser with a burn proof one get new original points and far as the coil goes get newer 6 volt one. I am assuming your bushing are still good.

Re: Marvel Carb fuel line difference

I use the same line as my Zenith. The adapter is due to different intake threads if I remember right.

Re: Arcing Brake Shoes

Try a truck brake shop. They still arch shoes and might be able to do yours.

Re: 1929 Fordor Briggs Running Again

Join a local club as they will be able to help you get it running faster and safer. If you have a 12v coil you will need a 12v system or a resistor to not have problems. Sounds like once the coil...

IF they can't send you a manual, try over on the Garage Journal or the HAMB. It is amazing what people over there have. I found someone who had a manual for my King Motor Analyzer.
