Re: KRW engine stand adaptor

I have been told it looks very much like an adapter for a Y-block. Maybe measure C to C the holes and then look on the side of a Y-block for holes the same distance apart. Maybe you could post the...

Re: battery polarity

The car came from the factory with a positive ground. You need to check all the connections, be careful if someone has changed the whole car over.

Re: 1935 Phaeton question

Someone may have swapped frames to replace a rotted out one somewhere along its path. Does the number on the title match the number you see on the frame?

Re: OPTIMA battery charger... purchase advice?

You didn't mention if your car had been switched to 12 volts. If it has, and an extra hot coil had been chosen the issue Mart described would be aggravated by it. If your coil is on...
