Re: Valve removal

If you can get the keepers off of the valve stem and pull the valve out it makes it easier to drive out the guides. I never reuse the valves, so I cut valve stems and take out the valve in pieces...

Re: Heater in a 35 cabriolet

All the installation instructions i have seen are for later years. Here is the 45 sheet if it is of any help. Here is a second one for a 39-40, a little closer in time.

Re: 6 volt, positive ground boost help?

Have all the connections been checked? They need to be clean, bright metal and I would put a little grease on each one. Grounds can always be an issue, so double check all of them.

Re: Early block/late crank question

Because it is easy to switch them out, I would think this could also occur in a previous rebuild.

Re: 59AB bearings

Should be nothing wrong with used bearings if they are in good shape and within spec.

Re: Help identifying points

If there are no identifying marks on the coil I would trace the wiring back and see if there is a ballast resistor in the circuit. With a ballast resistor you need around a 1.5 ohm coil (often...

Re: Temperature

Yep, way too low of an operating temp, need some higher temp thermostats. Good news is great cooling system!

Re: 1941 super deluxe production number

V8, so is the information posted on VanPelts site incorrect? I have not idea on these years, I was just going on what was in the charts there.

Re: Temperature

Not sure why anyone would think this is normal? The thermostats open at their designed operating temperature and you may well see a temp drop when they first open, but the temp should stabilize at...

Re: Temperature

Sounds like no thermostats! If they are installed, they must be sticking wide open. Are you checking the temp with an IR gun or quality temp gauge?

Re: 6v gen

Voltage regulators can be adjusted, BUT, it requires bending components and a very small adjustment can make a big difference.

Re: Is there a problem in my charging circuit (or starter)

I would wait until you get the new battery installed before getting to worried. Hot engines can be more difficult to start than a cold engine. The issue could also be the coil or condenser.

Can you measure the output? Should be above 6v for sure, somewhere in the 7.2/7.3v range
