Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Talking about a 35. Someone altered my battery case long ago, so the optima will work.

Re: Vehicle vibration

Just be aware, on that Murray balancer you can not change the belt once on. The engine must be lifted to get the belt on.

I was told this by Murray directly.

x2! Lou, this is exactly how you want to do it. After a few days you will get the hang of it.

Re: A-18478-s manifold heater

I don't use the bracket that is circled. I just use the rod and hook the bottom of the rod and attach it under the intake and pull up.

I have installed 5 of these heaters and never had an issue.

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

No, I am not trying to convert or change anything, the 8 volt was in the car when I got it.

I will be taking it out an ordered a 6 v optima. It seems to me I will have less problems, better...

Re: 35 Ford door pull handle

I am surprised with the angle of your armrest. Is your car a 35? Is that correct?

I was going to install my new armrest in a straight line, parallel to the top of the door frame.

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

When i got the car they said that the alternator was 8 volt. I have noticed that bulbs have been burning out.

Soooooooo, is there really any advantage to the 8 volt. Maybe more cranking amps?

8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Do you see anything wrong with installing a 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car with an alternator.

Re: cr"A"nk it in 45 seconds

You really cant tell by looking at the bailing wire. If it is too short and 1/32 of an inch too wide, then it is a repro.:D

Re: Brake Floaters For 1936

I think the term "locking the brakes up" means the brakes are in perfect operating order.

As long as all 4 are able to lock up at the same time in a uniform order then you have good brakes.

The heater will be a hot water.

Does that anyone have any photos of how they set it up in their engine bay and/or a parts list.
