Re: 1940 Lincoln Trans diassembley help-

Thank you Ken, that's it. I just forgot how to do it. The synchro hub stays on, the rear bearing is off the mainshaft, and you should be able to remove the mainshaft as whole assembly.

Re: Testing a 12V resistor coil.

Skip suggests 3.8 to 4.2 volts from the coil to achieve good point life. Does that convert to amps which would affect the life of the points. Thank you.
