Re: Back to the 50s 2021

Read the notice posted by Petehoovie. Says masks still required. Other restrictions (crowd size, etc.) have been lifted.

The Covid virus is still out there. Many people have refused to get...

Re: Matranga Merc

"what I/we used as door "poppers" back in the day were 1940's GM solenoids that GM used to engage the starter gear."

How were the solenoids activated? Push buttons (or keyed switches?) hidden in...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Well said Tubman.

Whats scary to me is the response to that. Apparently some still believe (in 2021!) man-made climate change is not a real thing, and efforts to slow climate change is not...

Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

Yes Jack, I think that's what he is referring to. But based on what I found with the resistors, I don't think you can get up to 4 volts until engine is running. I'm trying to dispel what I think is a...

Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

I'm just an amateur, but I have to speak up here, because I don't believe that's possible. That is correct value for a turning distributor, but not when working in the garage with engine stopped. You...

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

You didnít necessarily mess up the float rod. Thatís how the aftermarket senders act. They will work on our gages, but with no accuracy.

You can add a resister to the wire going to the sender to...

Re: Non-Zero Oil Pressure

Maybe 8 volts out of the voltage reducer is not OK? 6 to 7 volt is what the gauges were designed for.

Re: Electric steering

And I would think the high current draw would not be continuous, only while the motor is working hard to turn the steering shaft.

PVC Valve ?

Still trying to understand what I got. New-to-me '37 has Offenhouser intake, with this PCV valve on it.

Anyone recognize it? Who makes a PCV valve like this?

Don't want to touch it until I...

Re: hayden automotive 3647 adjustable thermostatic fan control

No experience with the Hayden unit. Vintage Air no.24675-VUT was on my '37 with aluminum radiator when I got the car. Works well, no problems so far. The on/off delta is about ten to fifteen...

Re: Coil readings what it it telling me

I think readings on both coils are what they should be.

Skip's coil needs the ignition resistor back in the circuit. Will add about .5 ohm for total of about 1.5 ohm. Your can coil is about 1.5...

Re: Extra quart of oil with oil filter system?

You could, but I think no need to pre-fill the canister. I think posts #6 & 7 above have it. The canister will fill as engine turns. The restriction in the filter supply line holds back oil going to...

Re: Extra quart of oil with oil filter system?

No, talking about the stock filter canister. Return line drains center tube of canister by gravity. But oil can only get into the center tube through the two small holes at top of tube. So most of...

Re: Extra quart of oil with oil filter system?

The canister's oil return path is through two small holes in the center tube. These holes are near the top of the tube. So I think gravity will only drain down about 1 inch of oil at the top of the...

Re: Who can 6v to 12v shop SoCal

I would suggest you have them resolve the other issues first. And then maybe leave it 6 volt, especially if you care about originality. 6 volt is unforgiving; things need to be right. But otherwise,...
