Re: Another Coil Question

Car is a 47. Sounds like easier starting if sending more voltage to coil but over time, not a good thing. I did resistance tests on coil and got lowT 0.7 and HighT 8400. Iím going to replace...

Re: Another Coil Question

Original style coil. Cant understand why they seem to have bypassed the resistor. The guy I got the car from was very knowledgeable. Either way, any advice on diagnosis?

Another Coil Question

Diagnosing a no start. 5.5 volts at coil. My coil is original style with 5203R marked on side. Do these coils have internal resistor? When I got the car, running fine. I notice now they had both...

Re: Coil Wire

Replaced ignition switch. Still not starting. Guess Iíll try replacing condenser. Could it be the resistor on inside of firewall? How can I test that?

Re: Coil Wire

Took resistance measurements on the coil. 0.6 -0.7 ohm low side and about 8500 on high side. Is this in the ballpark? Like I said, 5.4 volts reading at battery side of coil with ignition switch on....

Re: Coil Wire

Always have trouble posting pics. The high tension wire goes from bottom of my old style coil into a rubber boot that is in line with the metal tube with plug wires. Apparently this is where it...

Noticed that my high tension coil wire ( 47 flathead 6V) has a butt connection between coil and distributor. I’d like to replace it. I’m not familiar with the rubber boot that it enters on...

Re: 1947 Super Deluxe ignition Switch

Well it seems I found the issue. Hi tension coil wire seems to have been spliced between coil and where it enters boot to connect to plug wires. I will replace it but wondering how the non coil end...

Re: 1947 Super Deluxe ignition Switch

1947 Super Deluxe ignition Switch

Getting ready to take a look at an issue with a 56 Tbird speedo. Apparently, it is very noisy and jumps around. I was told they tried replacing the cable but that did not fix the problem. If...

Re: New Radiator

My point was that I don't want to pay $400 to have it cleaned if I can get a new one for $600. Am I crazy?

Re: New Radiator

Not looking to break the bank on an $800 unit. Brattons has a Brassworks HD 10fins/inch for $595. Seems pretty reasonable.
