Re: Starter Switch Questions

Later ford solenoids used those "speed nuts" to hold the studs in place. My thought was that it would hold the stud in place, but not need a wider nut and longer stud.

Re: Thank you Ford Barn

Re: Driver side door lock

I have a '31 Sport Coupe, but I suspect it is probably the same.

Re: Starter Issue

Check the battery as well. A weak battery can cause sticking contacts as well.

Re: 12V Delco alternator problem

If you look at the rear housing you will see a half moon shaped hole. There is a tab in that hole, if you ground that tab and the alternator charges.... bad regulator. Easy to replace.

Re: Getting my 1931 Model A Coupe go start

Re: 6V alternator weirdness.

Take a VOM with you and when the voltage drops, verify at the battery.
Could be a bad gage or poor connection.
