Help ID generator 6 or 12 volt

I have a rebuilt generator I acquired in a lot of parts. I'd like to hang on to it and use it if it's 12v, but is there a way to tell what it is? I can't find any markings on it. I was reading about...

Re: Turbo Flat Head

I don't see much point in putting a big turbo on a low revving engine, but I guess it could have been a "lets see if I can do it" deal.

Re: barrel starter drive for flathead

What are the symptoms of a broken bendix spring? My starter has been making a tinny metallic sound and seems slow to disengage.

Re: Who Owns VIN 18-1618677?

Mine starts with 195, but what a generous offer. I sure hope the car is still around and it finds it's place back in the glove compartment.

Re: 6 Volt Gauge in a 12 Volt Vehicle? It could be easier than you think! Voltage Red

I don't see how it's worth the trouble when Ford used 6v gauges on all of their cars into the 80's. All of the gauges run through a single voltage reducer on the back of the cluster. If you can't...

Re: 1940 radio

While this option might not be for everybody, my car is already 12v. I removed the factory radio and put the radio delete plate in. Then I used a single speaker with dual speakers in it, similar to...

Re: Front tube shocks 40 deluxe car

I put the same kit on my '40 as pictured above and it works fine with the sway bar. I got lucky and found a set at a swap meet that still had the crusty shocks with the tapered lower bolt in them....

Re: Installing a 1929 Tudor Headliner

I know this is an old thread, but can we see more details on how to finish the edge above the door? And what if any windlace is used? Also, is the area in the C pillar part of the top material or a...

Re: Columbia vs Mitchell overdrive

Maybe not the most practical option, but one worth discussing to muddy the water a bit is the Borg Warner overdrive. Lloyd and probably others used to mount them in the torque tube like the Mitchell...

Re: Columbia vs Mitchell overdrive

This pretty much sums it up for me. I have a Mitchell in my '47 coupe. I did have to notch the floor a small bit under the rear seat otherwise it would hit on bumps, especially with passengers in the...

Re: 1947 Coupe wiper motor

The motor is pretty simple to remove. Like Fordor41 said the spring clips come off to remove the arms and then two bolts remove the motor. There is a cover that comes off on the front of the motor,...

Re: Wilson Welding backing plates

For what it's worth, the 7536 and 7537 are for Buick 1956-1957, Cadillac 1950-1951 and the rears 7564 seem to have a lot of applications, but the rear of a 1960-64 Pontiac Bonneville or Grand Prix...

Re: Viscosity VS Pressure

Most people would probably be thrilled to have 60 pounds of oil pressure. Just keep the oil changed and happy motoring.

Re: 1940 Clock Help - Merc & Ford

I've used the clock works for my '40 wind up and my '47 electric. Both were about $100 each and I had them back working in less than two weeks.

How's the timing? If it's overly advanced it will be hard to start when hot.

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

Are you sure about that? The car is negative ground. With the sending wire off it reads E, when grounded it reads F.
