Re: I wish I would have waited

With 12v you don't need as large of a cable as with 6v. Twice the voltage, half the amps. If you are having issues spinning a 6v starter with 12v I suggest you check your connections.

Re: Adding Guages

If I am understanding you correctly you want to route all your power thru the ignition switch? I don't think you should try that. The switch wasn't designed for the many amps.

Re: Adding Guages

Well that didn't work so good. See if I can make it bigger.

Looking at the diagram, I'm wondering if the 'new lead' shouldn't be on the other ammeter terminal like original... hmmmm.

Re: Adding Guages

Hi Jack. Here is the wiring diagram I used to rewire my ignition switch. I didn't draw it. I copied it from a thread on electric gas shut off valves.

Re: 1930 Coupe Acquired 2/22/41, 79 Years ago

WOW!! barnstuf, what a fantastic story. I gotta ask, how old were you on your birthday in 1941 when you got your 'A'?

Re: Adding Guages

Thanks Tom for the explanation. My Tach has an integral light in it and when wired as you have it the light stays on. But it seems my Tach also has a ground wire and yours does not. So I rewired so...

Re: Adding Guages

Hi Tom. In your article on the Tach it states "Two wire leads from the tach attach to the two coil primary terminals". Does that mean your tach is 'Hot' all the time? Neg side on coil is connected...

Re: spark plug caps

Bert's sells copper plumbing parts? I see the brass knurled nuts, but that is not what is being talked about in this thread.

Lighten up, people are having a little fun with their sparklers.

Re: Wobble On Braking

What kind of tires do you have? Maybe your getting flat spots from sitting?

Re: spark plug caps

Yes Burner. I was able to grab a picture but was hoping for something clearer on a W18? And without that funky top? They are a bit expensive.

I agree, I like the looks of the homemade ones.

Re: spark plug caps

Does anyone have a picture of a spark plug with the cap from Restoration Supply Co. installed? Would like to compare with pictures of spark plugs above.

Re: spark plug connector pictures

The "B" leads are longer because the distributor is a bit taller due to the advance mechanism inside.

Re: spark plug connector pictures

FYI, 'B' leads are longer so they are further away from the body when installed on the 'A' I put shrink tubing over mine "Just in case".

Re: spark plug connector pictures

I never thought about that. I'm so anal I'm going to have to go out and check now!

I heard Ford cut them that way to cut costs, less scrap.

Re: Brake Light Switch Backwards

If you have hydraulic brakes why not use a hydraulic switch? Seems to me it would by way more reliable.

Re: Ways to Start With Obstructed Hand Crank

Wow Bob! That is a BIG Bax. It appears you could just drill a hole in the back for the crank, remove all you stuff and crank the engine with the crank INSIDE the box!

Re: Air Filter

I use the K&N Air Filter #5297. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E7DMKE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Guess I'm lucky as my filter does not "become saturated with fuel".

Re: What revs at 60MPH

According to Lucas Classic Tires a 28/29 tire (4.40/4.50-21) is a " taller than a 30/31 tire (4.75/5.00-19). I don't think you would see much impact.
