You mention "idle amps". At idle, the generator cut out has opened and broken the contact, so you do not get any charging showing at idle. You would adjust your charging rate at a higher RPM, when...

Re: Frame welting application

The welting starts about 2" past the rear of the splash apron and continues forward just wrapping over the front horns, but not below them. I have used contact cement, no problem. I have fit them...

Re: 3.78 vs 3.54 rear end and speedometer/miles

I run 3:54 in two cars and it seems to give about 6-7 MPH more with the same RPM. You will need to change the speedometer drive gear in the cap on the torque tube. All the parts houses have them...

Re: Rear backing plate/brake installation Les Andrews instructions

This is the way I have had the most luck, even on an assembled car. I have spent so much time trying to assemble the emergency brake arm and re-hook the spring back on, that for me it is so simple...

Re: Hood latch mounting

Your guide could be your hood shelf. Line the holes up in the back hood latch and then you will see where the holes line up in the front.

Re: Changing distributor points

Hey Pete, I don't really think there is a true mileage anymore. There are a lot of different points sold out in the market now, that I don't think a one mileage fits them all.

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

That is true.....and PPG and Dupont did not have a good color match for the Elkpoint Green. The Kewaunee green was pretty close, but the codes were not correct for Elkpoint.

Re: Brakes quiz!! ID the mistery system.

If I recall, they were originally sold as a "brake floater". Conway had it right, I know Rick's sold them as an aftermarket. My dad had them on his Roadster in the day, not sure it stopped any...

Re: Model A backfire, can't move

Before you jump in replacing parts, with either a test light or volt meter, start seeing where you have power. With the key off, you should have power both sides of the coil. With the key on, you...
