Re: 12V to 6V for voltmeter

Most voltmeters for use in cars donīt start on 0...they have a narrow span close to working voltage to be accurate...So with a 12v unit starting on 7v using it on 6v will be difficult.

Re: MARVEL SCHEBLER Carburetor

Not the universal base for the 2 barrel...but think they had singles to.

Re: 12V to 6V for voltmeter

Voltage reducer wouldnīt do you any good in this case.
A 12v voltmeter usually starts at a voltage to low to really be any good in a 6v system.
If the voltmeter starts at 7v it will barely show any...

Re: valve seat cutter

Thatīs a new one to me...Mira is electromagnetic and uses brazed carbides from start but goodson sold adapters to 3D cutters for them.
And all Mira style tooling uses live pilots.

Re: 6 Volt to 12 Volt for Headlights only?

Any converter will have losses even the most efficient ones.
And there are 6v H4 bulbs and 7" inserts for them at fair prices...probably a lot less then 2 converters handling 10A+ will cost.

Re: Throw out arm travel

Itīs not that sensitive if you get a bit to much movement...just as long as you get enough.
Aim for the shortest lever in that pic and it should work.
Get the angle of the lever right.

Re: Who lightens flywheels? Looking for a shop

And getting mass to the center of flywheel does the same job...so hopefully there isnīt an 11" clutch on the flywheel you work with.
Just going from a 11" to a 9" does quite a bit to rotational mass.
