Re: Attaching pics

Many ways to get there as you found out! I downloaded an apt on my phone to do it directly, but much prefer working on my computer.

Re: Attaching pics

The pop-up window allows a lot of different types of files to be uploaded. URL is not used when loading a photo file from your computer. Just a thought, but are you selecting the proper Upload? The...

Re: Extremely Frustrating Change in Fuel Consumption

If it is burning rich then there is too much fuel vs air. That just about means that the carburetor is suppling too much gas or the air flow is being blocked. Might be too much fuel pressure into...

Re: Attaching pics

It is almost always the file size. What are the file sizes of the photos you are trying to upload? The size limits are listed on the pup-up. I use an android phone, but I know most photos I take...

Per an older thread:
Ken tx posted the part number as - H D brake light switch #72023-51C made in USA.
V8coopman posted that it was superseded by #72023-51D.

The -51D appears that it might be a...

Re: 1937 Ford coupe. Bill of sale

Your post refer to engine number, you may already know this, but early Fords do not have engine numbers, as in a number on the engine itself. The serial numbers were assigned to the transmissions. ...

Re: torquing 8ba heads with an oil filter

I think over the years a lot of builders have determined that lower headbolt/stud torque values work and there is less distortion to the thin flathead blocks upper surfaces.

Re: Stromberg eFire Dizzy

No ballast resistor? I would guess you need 3.0 ohm in that circuit, 1.5 ohm is normally for a 6v system. You can get 3.0 ohm coils or use a 1.5 ohm coil with a 1.5 ohm ballast resistor.

Re: What is it?

Re: Igniton gureu's...next step/questions

Another question would be what style coil is being used? If it is a 6v "can" coil you need to by-pass the original ignition resistor under the dash. The resistor will drop the voltage to the coil...

Re: Igniton gureu's...next step/questions

The condenser is a ground path for the coil as are the points. The points are a switch that turn on and off the current flow while the condenser is a capacitor which charges up with the points open...

Re: Igniton gureu's...next step/questions

The condenser is grounded through the case/mounting bracket. The battery could be the issue. The starter pulls a lot of current and a dropped cell plus the large current drop might reduce the...

Re: spark knock under load

I think you want the vacuum brake hooked up. Bubba claims to see a difference in the stability on a scope. The vacuum brake was originally for help with ignition ping, it slows the rate of advance...

Re: fluctuating fuel gauge

Too bad you don't still have the original sender. They can sometimes be repaired. Much better unit.

Re: fluctuating fuel gauge

About the only replacement senders available are resistance type as opposed to original pulse-current type. 19Fordy posted some about this. It is somewhat hit and miss on getting the resistance units...

Re: fluctuating fuel gauge

Ok, I have a question. What would cleaning the tank out have to do with the fuel sending unit? Was it replaced at that time with a new unit? If so it is most likely a resistance unit now.
