Re: Electronic pain!!! Ignition !!!

Bubba, I'm suspecting a bad electronic ignition issue with my 48 59A 6V system too. Once I get around 2300rpm I start dropping cylinders. If I said Bubba, I want a crab style distributor that will...

Re: Upholstery Staple Gun Suggestions

I have a BeA, it works like butter, probably a little more expensive, but if you plan on doing many more jobs in the future, it'll last, and work like it did on day 1.

Will a 48 trans bolt up to an EAB?

I'm starting to notice a deep knock in the bellows of my 59A engine in a 48 sedan stock drive train, no OD on the trans, so I'm trying to think ahead. I have a complete EAB in the garage, and I was...

Re: Dropped axle

For those with lowered front ends, what shocks are you using? I assume they need to be shorter.

48 Sedan Trim Removal

I'm wondering how to remove the stainless trim all down the sides and hood. Are the clips the style you pry at the bottom and lift up?

Re: 59A Breaks up around 1/2 throttle

Charlie, I still have the original coil off of the car, which I think is in good shape, will that work or should I go with the new coil?

Cowl Vent keeps falling

I have a 48 sedan, when I got the car, there was a cotter pin going through the middle pivot. I replace that with a 1/4" bolt and nylock nut with slight tension on the bolt. Also the one rod was not...

Re: Installed a crab cap, now no spark

For those of you who said broken rotor, you are correct. I ordered the parts off of amazon for a 1942 car, it's a convenience using it. Foolishly I didn't check clearance when i had the distributor...

Re: Installed a crab cap, now no spark

Dumb question but would that be a constant spark?
