Re: 12 V conversion

Missed a few items, change the polarity and resistance for the coil and add a voltage drop(s) for the gauges.

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

Not sure why you would want to go to 160 deg thermostats, what is the point in that? You want the engine to run at least at 180, 185 or 190 would be better.

Re: 80lb oil pump with a 50lb gauge ?

If you don't want to change the pump right away, you can reduce the pressure by reducing the spring pressure at the by-pass in the valve galley.

Re: Runs better now...but why

Fairly easy to check/establish TDC with the heads on. There have been several threads on the process and I think Mart did a video. Basically you insert something through the spark plug hole that...

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

I do not, I need to check into that. I know they used the same basic system into at least the 70s, but not sure how similar they were when compared side by side.

Re: ultimate flathead

That explains the great switch over in the late 50s, LOL. You gotta love the part about a flathead being able to turn higher rpms and a SBC.

Re: ballast resistor/circuit breaker questions.

Ballast resistor is to reduces the voltage/current to the original coil. The Ford coil was designed to operate on the lower voltage. One advantage is the resistance of a ballast resistor changes as...

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

Notice that the info. box in 4th photo is for a 12V fuel tank sending unit. Where were they used?

My guess would be when Ford switched to 12V.

Re: Calling Ol'Ron, calling Ol'Ron...

Your machinist should be able to measure your valve springs for you. You need to determine the spring seat pressure at a specific spring height. That height may or may not require shimming. Any...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

If it was me, think I would take the filter I had to a parts store and compare the length to some other filters from different sources. That would show you any differences.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

I'm not sure what Rock Auto would know about the filter, they just stock and sell the parts.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

The canister doesn't look original to me, are you sure it's not a repo unit?

Re: Putting a roof insert in my 1932 Ford coupe

He was last on the Barn on 12-13-2018. My guess would be he didn't like constructive criticism.

Re: Crab distributor or ???

Are you attempting to run an original Ford coil on 12v? The 1.5 ohm ballast resistor is what is normally coupled with a 1.5 ohm coil. You need something in the 3.0 to 4.0 ohms total in the circuit. A...
