Re: OFF SUBJECT Quick Color rattle can paint

I like Krylon rattle cans, it is deep black and dries very fast. I think your choice works well also, I have used it and didn't find any negatives.

Re: Compatibility of brake parts rubber

Did you ever analyze what was causing that failure? I doubt it could have been the brake fluid if all was perfectly clean.

Re: What Is This Bolt For?

I would bet it is made to hold a big ground cable to iron framing, maybe a lightning rod or such.

Re: 1914 Touring Pass Rear Door Striker Plate

You could back one out and take a peek, I vote wood screws.

Re: Question about the ground strap for a 1931 Ford

If you cut it cleanly to the length you want, and flow little solder to tin and stabilize the braid. Then the braid it can be re-attached. Then crimp in a vise or press and solder.

Re: Low braking phenomena

Interesting, there must be something binding. Is there an axillary return spring?

Re: Changing from Positive to Negative ground

What are you trying to accomplish? I think it involves the coil and ammeter wiring, plus maybe new battery cables. It really is unnecessary though.

Re: Dsitributor Sight Glass Drip Oiler

I would think that would be an unnecessary modification. It is good to open the hood once in a while to check the oil level and use the drip off the dipstick for the distributor and generator.

Re: Ring/Pinion Question

Tom, I doubt The management would go for such a waste of time. I believe the gear sets were lapped and numbered.

Re: removing distrubutor shaft

It won't mess anything up to turn the crankshaft since as the post above say it only goes back where it belongs. Most other cars maybe so.

Re: removing flame arrestor or filler screen

Re: removing flame arrestor or filler screen

If it was hanging up on the old screen maybe it is fine with a new unit in the filler neck.

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

Wouldn't creeping voltage indicate a heating joint with increasing resistance.

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

What Amperage does it show? Check your grounds because the generator is not regulated. 10Volts will fry your lightbulbs, and is an indicator.

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

4 screws, 2 thumbnuts, and maybe a clamp, and the thing comes out. It can't be too daunting.?

Re: Silly question: Always replace bearing races when new bearings are installed or

You can try the other new race, or a new timken race shouldn't be hard to find.

Re: Silly question: Always replace bearing races when new bearings are installed or

If the National races match the contour of the bearing I would use them otherwise don't. The original bearings were mostly made by Timken I believe.

Re: What is this?

New, the light switch sells for around $45. & the wire harness around $55.00. These are quality items in Bratton's catalog.

Re: What is this?

The switch looks like a quality part, most likely a Ford made part.

Re: Nylock self locking nuts on main bearing bolts?

I have used this type of locknut on my rods. Got them from McDonald Douglas aircraft salvage store. They are all metal and worked well.

Re: Condenser removal on '30 Model A Sport Coupe

Use the pliers. When replacing don't drop the screw.
