Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Sounds like a good plan. Check all connections and be sure to use the correct battery braided battery cables, not the thin 12V cables.

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Better off spending the time and money to make sure your 6V
system is in tip top condition.

If you are intent on changing voltage, convert system to 12V.

Re: YOM License Plate Frame

Can you make that internal tube using a piece of copper tubing or a sink drain pipe?

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Support the cable with a plastic wire tie so that at least 4 to 6 inches of it feeds straight
into the speedometer. Sometimes a drooping speedo cable will cause dysfunction.

Re: 1940 Ford Coupe--looking for CAD drawing of outer shell

That 40 sure can handle - all in second gear by the position of the shift lever.
