Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Yep, all the K-S gauges/senders use the same basic setup.

Re: gas gauge 1939 tonner

I assumed we were talking original here, see that is not the case! Still zero at the sender connection, but it will be a resistance unit.

Re: gas gauge 1939 tonner

On the connection itself? zero, it is a path to ground. The current flows from the gauge in the instrument panel to the sender to ground.

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Interesting, the only senders Ford used that I am aware of were the KS units from the mid 1930s up into the 1980s or so. Do you have a photo of one? (Tubman's photo I believe of the insides)

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

So how are you getting resistance readings out of a set of points? Or am I misreading something? And what resistor are you loosening up? I'm confused here. The KS sending units are a set of points...

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

So these are all aftermarket senders?

Re: 36 wiring routing

I have some photos of model A light switch assembles if that would help. They are all about the same.

Re: Covid19

His profile says his last activity on the Barn was 12-1-2019. So, about 4 months ago.

I use a flare tool similar to the one Eastwood sales. Love it.

Re: 1949 6 volt coil

Would depend on the resistance of the coil. They sell different ones, I just checked and some are .6 ohms and some are 3.0 ohms. They also have a .32 ohm coil. If it is the 1.5 ohm coil (which is...

Re: Good coil

It somewhat depends on how everything set up. With a by-pass wired up when the starter is energized full voltage is applied to the coil. Cranking the starter lowers the voltage to the coil and the...

Re: Need for early condensers?

That's what engineers are for, if it was simple anyone could and would be doing it! The best reference point is to look at what the factory engineers did. They spent a lot of time, money, effort and...

Re: Need for early condensers?

There is more to this than protecting the points. The condenser and the coil form an LC circuit.

"The LC circuit produces a damped, oscillating current which bounces energy between the...

Re: How tight is tight and how loose is loose

The belts only need to be tight enough to prevent slippage.

Re: Electrical question on horn on 36

Just a better way to do it, same reason Ford started using them. BUT, it will work as well as the original 36 horns do wired direct.

Re: Electrical question on horn on 36

Sure you can hook up an auxiliary horn, but there are a number of considerations. Is your car 6v or 12v for one. The original horn(s) were direct wired from the starter switch hot terminal. You...

Re: gear ratio

Look at a speed vs rpm calculator. You can change tire size or rear axle ratio.
