The math


Assume the starter draws 40 amps at 6 volts (probably not correct but used for comparison of 6v vs. 12v)

Re: Oil - again

Zinc is not needed after break in on the A motor, zinc was added later due to higher engine speeds requiring stiffer valve springs to prevent valve float.

Re: Preferred Vendor for parts?

I like Berts a lot , usually ship same or next day. Best to call and ask for delivery times on rebuilts (Carbs, Generators, etc), sometimes they are backlogged.

Re: 180 Degree Thermostat "Hunting"

Probably OK as is. Could also try drilling a 3rd 1/8 inch bypass hole in the thermostat, sometimes lessens the amount of "hunting".
