Re: Help Me -before I go mad

Ok I'll give my opinion.

If you consider the ht side of the ignition as "weak", in other words, the spark will try and go astray before getting to the plug, try and reduce resistance where...

Re: To be or not to be a 1936 club cabriolet

This forum is heavily biased towards cars with mostly original running gear, so the responses may be biased towards keeping it stock and maintaining it.

Re: Open 1951 trunk without a key?

Before I would try disassembling, I would round up all the other keys I could find and try any that would actually go in. Sometimes, with a lot of wiggling, you might get lucky and it will open. This...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

I don't like those indicators in the headlamps. I don't think the contrast between the indicator and the headlamp is great enough . Probably ok in daylight but probably not good enough when the...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Never heard any mention of it here, but who knows? It may exist as a regulation but I never heard of it. I can see the sense in it, but never heard of it.

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Yes, more or less, the parking light feed must be routed to the new parking light in the headlamp unit. The flasher in the old park light location gets a new feed assuming flashers were not fitted...

Here I'm running those bulbs on the front, and all red lamps on the back, but with separate bulbs for brakes and indicator. So no fancy relays or switches.

It sounds like your lighting regs are a...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

It's just a separate bulb in the headlamp unit. The older sealed beam units have a clear window for the pilot light to shine through.

Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

When I was setting up the lights on the 41 pickup I discovered a type of bulb I hadn't even seen before. They are ideal for converting an existing park light to turn signals. You never know, this...

Re: ***Need help on BRAKES - 53 Merc Monterey***

If you look at your picture, the hose at the chassis bracket is slightly rearward pointing.

I think if you undo the fitting at the hose, re-seat the hose in the frame bracket, make sure it is...

A fun quickie. The truck's running, but I don't believe it.
