Re: Mallory Unilite Distributor HELP requested.

Add the coil and resistor. The voltage divided by the resistance equals amps. In your case, 14 divided by 2.2 equals 6.36 amps.

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

I ran into the same thing Tubman did. That's why I posted #15 & #67 on this thread.

Re: Thanks for the advice, still need more

Use the stock filter as it does a better job of filtering.

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

Here's what I did. Used Autolite 4092 plugs and chamfered holes on combustion side to cut out exposed threads. The heads are Offy. 400. Don't know the age of the heads as they were on the engine when...

Re: Replace Flathead with Y-Block?

I had a '54 and '55 Ford years ago and they handled as good as any car of that era. Both of those cars had "Y" blocks. People used to put Olds engines in old Fords. Talk about heavy!

Re: Fan oil

I think the fans that take oil are for '42-'48 cars and '42-'52 trucks. Somebody on this site should know for sure. I'm just going from memory.

Re: Fan oil

I use 30W non detergent oil in mine. When you take the hub apart and see how it's made it looks to me like 90W is too thick to lubricate properly. I have 12,000+ miles and no trouble.

Re: wheel cylinders for hydraulic brakes

I got wheel cylinders for my '51 and '81 Fairmont from NAPA and the quality was good. They were made in China but, didn't have that cheap Chinese look.

Re: 1954 Ranch Wagon Parts ID

scicala,
I think it is hooked up correct for a mas air system. That only hooks to manifold on speed density system.

Re: Are all yellow top coils 12 volt

The yellow top coils that I use all measured 1.5 ohms primary resistance. That is what I'm using with a resistor on 12 volts. As for the regulator, there should be marked on 6 or 12 volts.

Re: Ignition wiring photo request

This is how I did mine. The wire dividers are latter model Ford that I'm sure are still available.

Re: flex fan

Ross,
Don't have a shroud on my F-1 or '51. Neither have ever run hot after I got everything fixed properly. No trick parts or snake oil.

Re: Engine change

Better listen to Ggmac. That costs a lot of money, probably 15,000 plus. Sell the street rod and buy a car that hasn't been all f--ked up.
