Re: 1934 left horn mount

Another picture. Mount and bolt all one piece. Actually a much nicer mount than the stamped steel original type, IMO. Wonder who would have made it as I believe the cost would have been higher to...

Re: 1934 left horn mount

Possibly why the horn seems a bit "tippy."

1934 left horn mount

The horn on my 34 standard had been changed at some point. The mount is not similar to the one pictured in the green book. It appears to be a cast piece with the bolt a part thereof. Is this familiar...

Re: Moisture barrier

With respect, I do not believe that moisture passes through the concrete. The moisture is in your building and the cold floor draws the moisture from the air. This is just like a cold glass of beer...

Re: Discontinuing search for .33 micro-farad capacitors.

Re: Discontinuing search for .33 micro-farad capacitors.

Re: Discontinuing search for .33 micro-farad capacitors.

I had hoped that Tubman could put a mid .30's into one of his trashcans but he said it would not work out. Such a neat looking condenser. I am still using the original Ford part in my 34. I have not...

Re: Need for early condensers?

Does this mean you are looking for a supplier of an appropriate capacitor that will fit into your "Trash Can"? Or is it that the materials to build the mid .30's capacitor are not available?

Re: Need for early condensers?

If you have Skip Haney rebuild your coil, would the mfd requirement stay the same? Or would it just be a crap shoot until you figured out which side of the points was losing or gaining material?

Re: W.C.Fields and Robert Gordon - Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die

Kinda interesting that the windshield center bar on the 37 inside views is missing. Did the producer not want to distort the view or just want to make people believe it was an older car?
