While looking through Schramm's attic a number of years

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

You have to be careful shorting out the contact tip of
a MIG welder. When shorted the amps go way up. How
high depends on the out put range the machine is set
at. This can burn out the transformer...

Re: Gets warm and quits running?

Tom, I hate to tell you but condensers fail all the time
from heat. When Skip does a coil for some one he
asks them to send condensers so he can heat them
up to hot test them. They work cold but...

Re: Water pump comparisons

Try a bottle of Purple Ice. This coats the inside surfaces

Re: Gets warm and quits running?

Do you really think you have a good one now?? If it
is a stock Ford coil new or old it will still fail on a hot
day in traffic when the engine gets hot. I have tested

Re: Water pump comparisons

Skips pumps are a no brainer. They pump almost double
the coolant, less air and engines run cooler in most cases.
These are the last pumps you will ever buy, if they fail he
fixes them at NO...

Re: Shifting A Columbia In A '40

I installed the Columbia's in my cars so as soon as you

and slowly release it. ...

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

I usually use a piece of 1/4" pipe 3/8" thick for a spacer. If it also
has a valve in the pump the valve with the weakest spring will
determine the pressure. G.M.

You want to check fuel pressure, vapor lock starts with low
