Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

So I have received a 40amp diode, it's a stud mount, How much heat should I expect from this diode if we are running say 20 amps @12 volts.

Jon.

Re: Station Wagon Owners

I had to cut an angle, 30ish degrees, on the end of the boards that butt into the short edge of the hump. Just enough to get it to set flat onto the bottom of the floor. Not sure if that is what...

Brent, I don't know. I got this one from Ruth a few years ago. I just picked up a nice '29 Woody Cowl still with hinges. If I ever get this current project done, I will be looking for a hump, and...

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

Thanks to both of you. I am looking at increasing the wattage needed, looking at 20 amp peak @12 Volts. I know an alternator would likely make a better choice, but I want the look of the Generator....

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

How many amps will an original generator put out at 12V? I have read that the 6V generator will output ~22 amps. If 22 is right then should we only expect ~10 amps out at 12V.

Do I have the...

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

Sparky, so the generator needs no modifications to run the 12V system, simply re-polarize it for negative ground?

Re: PV Ford

They were bought by Millworks Hot Rod. They moved over next to Cutters Autobody, still in Tewksbury. Vic still is working there, I think Tuesday thru Thursday.

Re: rear brake drum ????

Does the bearing sleeves sold by Snyder's extend to the area where the seal is installed? It seems strange that wear from the bearing would cause the seal to be so loose. Maybe somebody machined...

Thanks for the pics. @31Henry Assume the hubs are two pieces, are they riveted together? Do the lug nuts bottom out on the inside hub or are the wheels held in place by the force on the outside...

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

Nothing ugly about wood spoke wheels on a Wood Station Wagon. IMHO.

wouldn't do it on any other body style.
