Re: 8 volt battery in 6 volt car

The voltage drop of a single resistor would vary with the applied load - more lights, more drop. A better approach may be to use 12V bulbs with 1.5 - 2 times the wattage rating, if you can find...

Re: Brakes quiz!! ID the mistery system.

Re: Torque dimension

Made me look. Lb is abbreviation for Latin libra, meaning "balance" or "scales". Libra pondo = a pound by weight. Google is your friend. :)

Re: Temporary Sealant/Caulk

Any rope caulk will work. Most are basically modeling clay. Duck and Frost King (Mortite) are good brands.

Re: signal stat 900 question

Ok, isc. On reexamination they both show bottom of the flasher. #4 is a little off-center, #5 is badly drawn. But both correct.

Re: Electronic Flasher

The vendors sell resistors for just that purpose. Add them in parallel with the bulbs on each side. They waste energy, but the 535 works.

Re: Non Model "A" Electrical Question

Capacitors need to be tested removed from the circuit. For a lot less than the price of a decent tester (that you wouldn't use a lot) you can replace all the caps you suspect. Of course, I mean the...

Re: 6V versus 12V (stupid ques. I'm a newbie)

The least painful method is to keep it stock 6V, positive ground. But at least replace the cutout with a FunProjects regulator - it will save worrying over battery charge. Tom Wesenberg's EVR is...

Re: headlight sockets

All i've seen is Fig 436 of the FSB, which doesn't tell you more than you already know.

The 1928-E29 H-type headlamps used a different bulb set than the 29-31 Twolite type. The only bulb you will...

Re: Model A Volt Meter

Quite probably true, but verify with them for sure. If the case is common with the (-) terminal you could get a shower of sparks. And dash depth is limited - the unit may not fit entirely behind...

Re: Correct engine?

Likely the latter. In my case the engine is from mid-1929, in a mid-1930 coupe. In researching records, it was issued a state VIN (to be stamped on the door pillar), but somehow the ole boy managed...

Re: Fuel shut off

If it leaks at the shaft, you should be able to remove the handle and tighten the packing nut to seal it back up. Works for most all valves. New valves often need this done after wear-in.

Re: E A Laboratories Voltage Applications

That would be a misleading statement. Probably meant "available in 6 and 12 volt". Many have experienced the result of running a 6v horn at 12v. Not pretty.

Would like to see the ad.
