Bubba, Glad to see you up and around and enjoying getting something done. By the way what do you paint the point plates with.

Thanks, Cobbie

Jim, I have long enjoyed reading your posts and am glad to hear you are doing better. I am quite fortunate to get to work from time to time with my father and my son on my '34. No grandkids yet though! My son is in Mercedes tech school in Atlanta and is doing his second apprenticeship at the dealership in Athens, GA. I have enjoyed watching him learn and being able to work on the point based systems as well as all of the OBDII stuff.

Do you have any plans to take on new work? I have some I would love to send your way if and when you are ready.

Ron

Yes my first step was to reorg my life a little bit to make the job easier, ( we have done well at that part) priority one is to clear out the backlog aqquired when sick and down. I am down to approx 7-10 orders ( was 25) and getting them done each work day. Also have shop ready for a Indiana winter.
Also have a new business deal with a friend up the street from me , hes taking some of the workload (chevys etc msd ) with training, We will convert this location to nothing but early Ford Flathead stuff... So sure we will be taking on new work very soon , actually can take it now if ya aint in a hurry....

Feeling a little "crabie" again today........behind as usual so i just pulled 5-6 plates from the stack and started installing CS47 sets from napa. I think one of the better things i have learned about the fiber rubbing block pointsi is they will change adjustment after a few short miles . My fix for that issue ( and i think it fixes the problem) is t use a ton of lube ( mobil one wheel bearing grease) to the backside of the rubbing block. A old guy ( older than me) showed me that and i have used it on every tune up for many years. Makes sense , then i soak every rubbing block hole in marvel oil for some time as well.........

Don ,
Maybe 1 our of 50 need a bushing , i fit the shafts to the bushing and check the fit . I do see a few helmets with the shaft damaged from time to time , i just throw them in the trash if the shaft is hurt as well. Putting in new bushings is a pain and takes some serious time , i have the tooling etc and stock a few bushings but after pressing in a new bushing it needs to be fitted
( reamed) as the bushings tighten up .
If i was just doing maybe one or two i guess i would take the time to do some but they are seldom needed as theres not much side loads on the shaft

Crab attack again, they have crawled on my desk ....machine break in for a few minutes at 5000 plus = 11 degrees advance / 36 degrees of dwell, plenty of lube on point cam and point set . May catch up on the crab back orders this week ........
Moved the V8 60 to the lobby today thats where it will live . I plan on tsting the Early ford distributors with a Pico lab scope and will write a booklet regarding these evasive ignition systems using the 60 as a test bench. Look for this coming soon....... Ever seen a scope pattern of the early ford coils etc????

Jim on these I use a 7/16-14 tap and literally thread the bushing and run the tap against the housing and it lifts it right out. Usually a old one Is removed and a new one in in less than 60 seconds. This is not a safe method on the v-12ís however as the housing is cast much thinner
