Re: Generator Field Ground

That flag terminal is the field feed wire and is attached to the adjustable brush.

Ford never grounded the fields on the end plate.

Re: Horn won't work

Is the diaphram oriented correctly?
The lines of the wavy wheel must strike the diaphram chisel point in the same line.


You must use a fully charged battery, and the adjustment screw should...

Re: Generator Field Ground

You show the terminal for the adjustable brush, but the other end of the field coils should have a large eyelet that fits under the output stud and insulating washers. Parts houses sell the stud and...

Re: To Frequent Drivers: What Function Concerns You The Most?

Exactly! Texting, speeding, tailgating drivers are the only thing I worry about.

Re: Carpet fastener location

My early 29 Tudor came with rubber mats, not carpets. I will lay carpet over the rubber mats to hold down heat and noise.

Re: Camshaft Plunger !!!!

Yes it does, but for some reason, even with the X recess in the plunger, it takes some time for the oil to coat the plunger.

Re: Brakes (Again)

Remove 4 pins from the front ends of the 4 service brake rods.
Adjust each wheel to lock, then back off each a few clicks.
Adjust rod ends so the pins just slide into place as you LIGHTLY pull each...

Re: Camshaft Plunger !!!!

Try some heat and cool cycles first. I had the same thing with a customer's car that someone else overhauled the engine and didn't lube the plunger. It made a squeal that scared me until I figured...

Re: Lloyd Young Car Auction Today

Re: Coil Voltage ???

Yep, that's the exact experience a worker had at the yard where I worked. Someone wired the coil to the driver's seat spring, and the driver felt the power in the seat of his pants. True story.

Re: Nu Rex Points

The points is what completes the ground side of the coil circuit. If the head distributor hole is rusty or the distributor lower housing has paint or rust, then it may not make a good ground.

A few years ago I wondered if gray and grey are both acceptable ways of spelling it, and they are.

Re: Headlight Electrical Draw

The long generator can safely produce 12 amps continuous, and the powerhouse can give 15 amps.

Re: New surprises with my 'new' 31-Tudor

Re: 31 Truck???

I was also wondering if the look is from fire damage. $3,000 is crazy, and about 10 times what I think it's worth. If the seller installs a new battery and gas and gets it running, the price will go...

Re: Abrupt stop in reverse gear

My 29 Tudor did the same thing when I bought the car.
Found one parking brake lining held to the band by 1 rivet.

Re: Occasional Hard Starting

Buy the correct cable from Bratton's and use the kill switch on the battery ground side.


Some kill switches are problems. I don't use one.
