Re: Need help balancing wheels

36coupe. Just a suggestion for the level you picked up. Find as level a surface as you have handy, and place the level on it. Let it settle, and look at where the bubble is. Rotate 90 deg. and...

Re: What do you think?

satfix. I'm making the assumption, that you are talking about the grinding happening when you are stopped, and try to put the trans into first gear. I can't see how changing diff lube would have an...

Re: polarizing a generator

Here is a copy of the instructions I have. Judging by the three languages, I would say it is for an aftermarket unit, but may be what you need.

Re: distributor

I guess I didn't understand, thinking that the original question was about the screw in the back of the shaft, I think.

Twofords. Are you referring to the leather that is on the piston in the...

Re: distributor

No. The passage for the vacuum brake is on the back face of the distributor body, where the rubber O seal is. I'm surprised you got the screw out. I gave up on mine and soaked the bronze bushings...

Re: distributor

There is a screw in the back end of the distributer shaft on my '46, 59A as well, and I couldn't remove it. I believe that is was an original design that was dropped. The threads at the top of the...

Re: distributor

You didn't happen to leave the ignition on while the engine was not running did you? If the points were closed at the time, something in the circuit will fry, as you essentially have a sustained...

Re: V8- Times

koates. Don't quit because of the USPS service, that has been overloaded for the last month, and the problems surrounding COVID. I live in Ontario, Canada, and have not received my issue either.

Re: Vintage Heater

My suggestion is to remove and have it pressure tested. I took the rad and heater core from my '46 to a rad shop and had them, cleaned, flushed and pressure tested. I forgot to ask the rad shop...

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Sorry folks. What does the resistor have to do with the starter circuit? I thought the resistor was only in the ignition circuit to control voltage to the coil.

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

There is a YouTube on the A site that goes over the rebuild of the starter button.

Re: Wiring question

If you have original wiring, they do pull apart. The connectors have a "spring loaded" sleeve with ridges inside to "lock" into the groove in the male connector and a rubber cover over the sleeve. ...

Re: vacuum source

As far as I know, itís just a fitting. When I had it apart,I could see through it, so unless a previous owner did something to it,itís just a fitting to make the connection.

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

My post on the solenoid was obviously wrong, and I learn something new every day on this site. When did Ford start using solenoids in the starting circuit?

Re: vacuum source

Forgot to attach this picture of the vacuum source. The silver colored part with the hex goes through the banjo fitting with a copper washer on each side of the banjo.

Re: vacuum source

You don't say what year, but the vacuum source on my '46 comes from a port located just below the carb on the back side of where the carb bolts on. The steel line goes to the distributor advance...

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

When you say it doesnít click or anything, I would suspect the starter solenoid. Jump from the battery direct to the starter to see if that works.
