Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

No, that distributor requires a specific carburetor to work. It needs a mixed signal from both above and below the throttle plate.

Re: Brake drums

It matters for unsprung weight, would think that was what Ford had in mind.

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

Also, when you check the spark at the plug, is it a bright blue spark?

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

The compression numbers don't look that bad for unseated rings, so that should rule out any valve issues. So about has to be an ignition problem. Can you post a couple of photos of the distributor in...

Re: The question of the day?

Ok, this is a 4 cylinder. Most likely the generator putting out current opposite the battery connection!

Re: The question of the day?

The coil will work reversed (but weaked), the generator won't work. Did it start? Just attempting to start it shouldn't do much. Install the battery correctly and see if it will start and run.

Re: Calling ALL ingnition and or electriacl experts

On the 9N & 8N, the number indicates the first year of production, 39 & 48. The early 8Ns had the front mounted distributor then they switched to the side style, something like the 8ba.

Why not...

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Ok, frnkeore, me too. My first car was a 30 Model A coupe. I was like 12 or 13. No floor boards and no exhaust pipe. The carb leaked and it would blow a ball of flame under your feet ever so...

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

Compression test will tell you about all you need to know about valve adjustment. If you don't have a gauge think you can borrow one from most auto parts places.

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

Before you start taking things apart, need to check what you are doing. A compression gauge will give you a good indication if the valve clearance is anywhere near correct. If there is a spark and...

Yes, the file you sent me was 3.27 MB and the maximum size you can post (per the limits listed in the pop-up menu). This is 120KB. What computer are you using, or are you doing everything on your...

Re: Steering wheel shim

It is almost always a file size issue if you having a problem. Most camera/phone images are way to large to post and need to be reduced to below around 585KB.

Re: brakes

See if any of this helps. The big issue is finding the hubs and drums.

Re: 39 No fire at the plugs

I know, agree, but doesn't sound like how he has it wired. He keeps referring to a negative to the (-) side of the coil. But no idea what he is considering a negative.

Re: 39 No fire at the plugs

Ok, what does this mean "The positive 12 volts goes to the + side of the coil. Negative to the negative on the coil." Negative what? You need to keep in mind that this is most likely clear to you,...

Re: No door key

A locksmith should be able to rekey the tumblers in your door locks to match the ignition key. Phil would know.

Re: 39 No fire at the plugs

It is explained a little strange in the original post as far as how the distributor and coil is wired. It may just be a typo, but as written, it would not work. Flatjack9 provided the correct...
