Re: "8BA" Crank Pulley Car/Truck Inquiry

Re: Crank Pully Nut - b6319a

Ahh so most were 1 3/8, but some might have been 1 1/8 ! That is helpful, yes & that would make sense as the ears do seem a bit spread out - I don't have any reason to remove right now, also access...

Re: Resistor Unit / Coil Resistor 6 Volt System

I believe the Bosch Blue was recommended if I had a 12 volt system ?, but for a 6 volt system the 3 ohm will be to much ? (only 2 amps on 6 volt)
Further research indicates that the coil resistor is...
