Re: Electric Fuel Pump

Almost everything electrical without a circuit board works on 6v, even if it is 12v. Just half as fast.

Re: Custom 1939 Ford -- Really!

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

I think if you turn off the news and social media and just take a drive or go outside, you'll find all is fairly chill and just fine. It'll also do more to promote the hobby.

Depends on where you...

Re: 32 amp gauge

The old ammeter, can run backwards depending on which way you run the wire. You don't really need it to run and it doesn't effect charging or running. Just lets you know what is happening. No...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

G.M. I never said he had a gm car, sorry I should have been more clear. It's a toyota. But in the future a corvette swap will be possible.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

A current path forward may require a bit of both. Never did I mention warming, but addressed a fuel source that is not infinite.

Re: Back to the 50s 2021

Just reporting from a friend of msra and a link to the website. Best I know it will happen. Mask mandate, but we all know how that goes. If you want to help they need volunteers.

A skip coil is a no brainier, a believer for sure. Probably relieved every starting and running issue I've had for a decade after. Isn't a vw blue Bosch coil perfect for this also?
