Re: First trip observations.

If you can get a baby diaper or two, wrap it around the bottom and hold it there with bungee cords and see what you catch.

Re: first time looking at a 30 Model A

You should be able to get a good driver for $9,000. By all means, you don’t have to buy the first one you come across. There are plenty out there. Take your time. If

Re: Need Help in Identifying Location of Short

See if your ignition switch gets warm. The point arm must have zero volts when switch is off. I bet it is almost off. Bypass the switch with a jumper and see what you have. Sounds like you understand...

Re: Seems like there's not enough fuel

Take out at least one plug and see if it is black and fuzzy. If so, clean the plugs.

Re: 1929 Fordor Briggs Running Again

Make it do it again and when it stops, try to start it with a little choke and then stick your finger into the throat of the carb. If it is dry, it’s fuel.

You have an open circuit within the distributor. Take the top plate off and, with an ohm meter, find the break in the circuit. If it was a short, you would get a spark when you connect the emergency...
