Re: 32-34 distributor rotor gap

Well I checked the gap and it is .060. It did run with the old inner terminal cap. Points are fair shape . Not new. Change rotor and points or a rebuild? Suggestions happily accepted!

32-34 distributor rotor gap

Looking at my 1935 distributor. Have new inner terminal cap. What should gap between electrode to rotor be? How hard is it to change rotor? Or is a rebuilt best option? Thanks for info.

Re: 35 to 41 Flathead motor color

Are you suggesting painting with a brush? Hand painting is fine with me. Thanks

Re: 1935 Ford Model 51 truck driveshaft lubrication?

Ok. It seems to me that there is quite a distance from zerk to universal joint in that clam shell. Is corn head grease lighter than a regular grease? Or do you have to pump in a lot? Thank you...
