Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

Can you hook your timing light on #1 and turn Dist. Until you see a spark. This should tell you it's timing is good or 180 off.

Is the "long" style any better than the Borg & beck?

Re: Distributor Installation 40 V8

The top left bolt where the condenser grounds is difficult to access. Notch your condenser ground to slip under bolt making future replacement easier.

Re: Lost voltage to coil while cranking

With resistor bypassed you should have 6volts to coil. You should not run it very long with it bypassed

Re: Lost voltage to coil while cranking

The resistor drops the voltage to the coil. Not sure what coil you are using but you should have 6volts entering and about 3 volts going to coil. This is easy to test and if bad look for a nos...

Re: Lost voltage to coil while cranking

If your battery is good I would check voltage drop across your resistor if you are using one.

Re: Napa part number for 41 fan belt

It is easy to figure, B(size ) plus 3" equals true length. Thus a B54 measures about 57".

Re: 1939 Ford Windshield regulator gears

I have seen gear on eBay recently. It now comes with rivets to make installation easier. When I did mine a few years ago I had to improvise for the special rivets. I too had to " Doctor" the gear to...

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

In the book "Ford Trucks since 1905" page 212 shows a similar truck called an Australian artillery tractor. There is also a 39 one. They were said to have "roadster" tops.

Re: Won't Start when Warmed Up

You could check voltage to starter both cold and hot when it cranks slow. Should tell you where the trouble is or at least narrow it down.

Re: Helmet Distributor Rebuild

Save yourself future grief and notch the condenser ground so you don't have to remove the bolt to change it. You can just loosen it a couple turns.

Re: Initial start on new engine

I would not warm it up without water in it. Only needs block sealer if it leaks. You can achieve oil pressure by cranking it with the plugs out. If it's 6volt a 12 volt battery will turn it faster....

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

The one I got for my 39 deluxe has a second layer of metal on the blades where the rivets are. Most others I've seen don't have this. It has a 3" hub.
