Re: Horn

Could be horn button not providing good ground. Touch a ground to the ground side of the horn (NOT the yellow wire) to check.

Could be 12V horn?

Re: 1928 Sport Coupe turn signals not working

Measure resistance across the led units. I would guess it should be less than 6 ohms in order to provide enough current to the thermal flasher. If higher, you need to add parallel resistance for...

Re: 1928 Powerhouse charging

Grounding the output also grounds out the field windings, so the generator will not produce power. No voltage, no current. Nada.

Re: Wire gauge

Wires should all be #16 except those between generator, ammeter and starter (yellow or yellow-black) should be #12 .

Re: Gas gauge float and what is it?

Not a bad idea. Cork tends to waterlog and sink; hylomar may dissolve in ethanol though.

Re: Polarity

The generator, if installed, will need to be repolarized as well.

Re: I need help with turn signal switch

It may be a ground for the pilot lamp, so you don't have to scrape paint off your steering column. Check for continuity between that wire and switch housing. You could leave it off and see if it...

Re: Alternator

30 amps is plenty for any lighting. Wipers too. Heaters may need more.

Re: Model A shops

Metric is much easier to use so long as you stick with it. Problems arise when you have to deal with the ancient system we're used to.

Re: Oil Pan type

Welcome to the Barn, Mickey!

Your car is 1928 - early '29, from the metal wiring tube on the engine. It would be helpful if you could be a little more specific. The engine serial number would...

Re: Altenator/Starter Issue

Not really. It should be rewired for 12V. That being said many have used 6V starters in 12V systems for years.

Re: Signal-Stat 900 Turn Signal Switch Issue

Re: Ammeter Fire

A ground return path with high resistance (couple of ohms) from paint or rust can cause the regulator to produce higher voltage. Check the charging voltage at the battery. If more than 7.4 volts,...
