Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

The amps the bulbs require is the watts divided by the volts. In general numbers a 25W bulb would use ~4 amps with 6 volts. Two 25w bulbs would pull around 8+ amps and two 30w bulbs would get you...

Re: Condenser

A lot of the guys on the Barn know about, work on & own completely stock flathead era V8s AND modified early Fords. The Barn is dictated to the former, but is very tolerant to the later as well. :)...

Re: Gear ratio's and final drives

There are tables that list all the different gear ratios, I work with Ford T5s, but there are tables for the GM units as well.

The first chart is not readable, but you can find them online. Keep...

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

Billy, because the lights are pulling more amps than the generator can output. If you assume the generator is working properly and actually outputting 15 amps with the lights off and keeping the...

Re: Valve removal

If you can get the keepers off of the valve stem and pull the valve out it makes it easier to drive out the guides. I never reuse the valves, so I cut valve stems and take out the valve in pieces...

Re: Heater in a 35 cabriolet

All the installation instructions i have seen are for later years. Here is the 45 sheet if it is of any help. Here is a second one for a 39-40, a little closer in time.

Re: 6 volt, positive ground boost help?

Have all the connections been checked? They need to be clean, bright metal and I would put a little grease on each one. Grounds can always be an issue, so double check all of them.

Re: Early block/late crank question

Because it is easy to switch them out, I would think this could also occur in a previous rebuild.

Re: 59AB bearings

Should be nothing wrong with used bearings if they are in good shape and within spec.

Re: Help identifying points

If there are no identifying marks on the coil I would trace the wiring back and see if there is a ballast resistor in the circuit. With a ballast resistor you need around a 1.5 ohm coil (often...

Re: Temperature

Yep, way too low of an operating temp, need some higher temp thermostats. Good news is great cooling system!

Re: 1941 super deluxe production number

V8, so is the information posted on VanPelts site incorrect? I have not idea on these years, I was just going on what was in the charts there.

Re: Temperature

Not sure why anyone would think this is normal? The thermostats open at their designed operating temperature and you may well see a temp drop when they first open, but the temp should stabilize at...

Re: Temperature

Sounds like no thermostats! If they are installed, they must be sticking wide open. Are you checking the temp with an IR gun or quality temp gauge?

Re: 6v gen

Voltage regulators can be adjusted, BUT, it requires bending components and a very small adjustment can make a big difference.
