Re: chrome stripping?

I had a local shop de-chrome some parts for me about 3 years ago.

Re: To fuse or not to fuse

Ford only used a fuse on the lighting circuit on these early years.

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Which pictures GM? I am honestly trying to figure out what you are referring to. The only senders I have ever seen or heard of in these years of Fords is the K-S units, like shown in post #27...

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

That's the only type Ford ever used, correct?

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Yep, all the K-S gauges/senders use the same basic setup.

Re: gas gauge 1939 tonner

I assumed we were talking original here, see that is not the case! Still zero at the sender connection, but it will be a resistance unit.

Re: gas gauge 1939 tonner

On the connection itself? zero, it is a path to ground. The current flows from the gauge in the instrument panel to the sender to ground.

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Interesting, the only senders Ford used that I am aware of were the KS units from the mid 1930s up into the 1980s or so. Do you have a photo of one? (Tubman's photo I believe of the insides)

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

So how are you getting resistance readings out of a set of points? Or am I misreading something? And what resistor are you loosening up? I'm confused here. The KS sending units are a set of points...

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

So these are all aftermarket senders?

Re: 36 wiring routing

I have some photos of model A light switch assembles if that would help. They are all about the same.

His profile says his last activity on the Barn was 12-1-2019. So, about 4 months ago.

Re: 1949 6 volt coil

Would depend on the resistance of the coil. They sell different ones, I just checked and some are .6 ohms and some are 3.0 ohms. They also have a .32 ohm coil. If it is the 1.5 ohm coil (which is...

Re: Good coil

It somewhat depends on how everything set up. With a by-pass wired up when the starter is energized full voltage is applied to the coil. Cranking the starter lowers the voltage to the coil and the...

Re: Need for early condensers?

There is more to this than protecting the points. The condenser and the coil form an LC circuit.

"The LC circuit produces a damped, oscillating current which bounces energy between the...

Re: How tight is tight and how loose is loose

The belts only need to be tight enough to prevent slippage.

Re: Electrical question on horn on 36

Just a better way to do it, same reason Ford started using them. BUT, it will work as well as the original 36 horns do wired direct.
