Re: Dash Light Bulb Changeout

Twist and pull the cover off. There's a groove that lines up with a bump on the cover letting it pull off easily. Worst case force it off, won't damage it, really.

That one is for Model T, which is negative ground.

Re: Door striker plate screws on coupe

I replaced those screws on my 30 Coupe, don't remember why. IIRC, a movable threaded plate is captive behind the jamb. Replace one at a time to keep the same adjustmemt.

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

There's a kit to cut and splice the floorboard so you can change the battery without removing the whole board. Would be a good idea here I think.

Re: Cleaning Silvered Plated Lamp Reflectors

The instruction book says to polish the reflectors with lamp black and a soft cloth, as I recall.

Re: Cleaning Silvered Plated Lamp Reflectors

Lamp black/carbon black is basically plain old chimney soot. Pure carbon powder, probably sold by chemical suppliers.

Re: Cleaning Silvered Plated Lamp Reflectors

Tried the boiling water & Al foil, didn't work well. Guess the water didn't stay hot enough.

Re: Four-Ways Work, Turn Signals Don't !!!

A 6 ohm resistor should pull 1 amp, which should activate a thermal flasher, but 3 ohms/2A would make it more certain. Try paralleling the 2 6 ohms on one side and see if that side works.

I...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

I suspect it is most places. So - rightfully the title should be retired. It shouldn't go with either bag of parts.

Re: using a 12 volt system with the 6 volt horn

Definitely from Snyder's, but I don't find the link either. I'll see if I can find the receipt.

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Possibly sell title to higher bidder, but rightfully should be retired. As aermotor says, they're both parts, which are untitled.

Re: Rebuild generator or move to alternator?

Looks like you will have to change the field windings which are tough to bust loose. Save a lot of headache and trade for a rebuilt short nose. Tom W's EVR is a good choice, but with all LED's you...

Re: 1929 A headlights

I believe those are the later 29 Twolite lamps - looks like the triangular pattern wire guide "plug" will fit. With no cowl lamps you should replace the inner harness with the two bulb type, the...

Re: 12 volt?

Purdy is correct, doubling the voltage doubles the power output of the generator. The generator is (conservatively) rated at 12 amps. At 6 volts this equals 72 watts; at 12V it's 144W. When 50CP...

Re: 1929 A headlights

Yes. Identical except for no 2nd socket, and of course only 2 wires on the internal harness. Harness for cars WITH cowl lamps have only 2 wires to each headlight, the yellow/black wire pigtails out...

Re: 1929 A headlights

Just consulted my FSB - the Twolite was introduced very early 1929, so that's probably what you have, and shouldn't have problems with parts compatibility.

Re: 1929 A headlights

28-29 have "H-type" buckets, fluted lens. Conduit and socket are smaller, two wires. Single bulb reflector w/ concentric socket sleeve. 3-position light switch, off-dim-bright.

30-31 "Twolite"...

Re: Headlight question

The only difference between reflectors is the extra socket holder. The sockets themselves are part of the internal harness. You can just clip the extra socket off to use in a single-bulb reflector....

Re: Keyed 6 volt source

Would be good to know what it is you're trying to do.

Wiring is from points - switch - coil - battery. (Coil is live at all times.)

If you want to change to switched battery go points - coil -...

Re: Custom LED "Bulbs"

Nice work. Where did you find those LEDs? BA15S bases can be had from bulb vendors so you don't need to cut your fingers breaking the glass.
