Re: starter amps

Re: Decided against turn signals.....what about this idea?

What is not to like about turn signals ? You don't like the switch ?

There is no need to change or add anything to the outside of the vehicle.

Re: starter amps

These threads always seem to take on a life of their own. The man asked a simple question and I think we chased him away.

Re: At What Age Do You Give It Up?

We all have an expiration date stamped on us somewhere. We shouldn't give it up until that date.

Re: starter amps

It depends on the type he is trying to use. I have one that works on DC. I bought it specifically for testing starters on a vehicle.

Re: Front wheel bearings

This can easily turn into an oil thread.

Not that it means much but I've been setting this type bearing for 60 yrs. Applications are different such as differential vs front wheel bearings.

Re: Steering end play

Like J mentioned, try adjusting it first.

Yours should a 2 tooth box which has 4 adjustments that need to be done in order. The best procedure is in the Service Bulletins.

Single just looks right on an old car, but, is a bit...

Re: Stuck 1930 instrument light

Those pesky little gremlins ! You do have to keep them occupied to keep em around.

It doesn't seem like that lite should be an issue on such a low mileage vehicle.

Re: Demise of the Ford Tri-Motor

Pencil annuals ? Yep, they still happen all to frequently. Some folks seem to think they are worth it, I happen to think they are a huge waste of good money.

Re: Seized Engine

I thought the starter was out.
Did you find the starter bolt that was lost ? If not, that could be the problem, maybe.
