Re: Fuse Block & Coil Resistor for 38 Ford

JSeery I found one on ebay that's NOS. Ordered it before I saw your reply. Thanks for the info. It's a 33 to 40 single circuit breaker and ballast resistor.

Re: 1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

Tinker/Koates/JSeery,

I'm going to get a 6 volt and see what transpires. I'll put an update on here as soon as I can go to town and get the battery. Thanks for all the suggestions folks!

Re: 1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

Thanks JSeery and Kevin. Right now I have a 12 V battery with a 6V stock coil going through a resistor (That has a broken base). I also have a 6V voltage regulator. I really don't for sure know...

Re: 1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

Koates,

I was under the understanding that you could use a 6 volt coil with 12 volts. My bad. I may have to just do that, add a 6 volt in place of the 12V. Do you know where I can get a new...

Re: 1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

Koates,

It's a 12v battery. I was wrong, I never installed the reducing unit for the coil. So it's hooked to the resistor under the dash next to the fuse. It's a new 6 volt coil. Yes the bulbs...

Re: 1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

JSeery,

Mine is wired just as you describe above. I have the derby type coil on the dist and it's wired off the coil to the resistor under the dash. I haven't noticed a voltage drop on the...

1938 Ford Tudor electrical problems

Ok, I'm still fighting this and not much good at electrical problems. I have a 38 stock ford tudor with the V860 in it. Previous owner said he converted it to 12 volt but the generator looks to be...

Re: Ballast resistor getting real hot

It has a one fuse. Instrument lights work but tail and brake don't. Yes they're controlled by the steering column light control switch. It's a standard not a deluxe so only the minimal things. I...

Re: Ballast resistor getting real hot

Still can't figure out why my lights won't come on and the ballast resistor is getting so hot. It wasn't before and I drove it around town several days with no problem. Then suddenly the other...

Re: Ballast resistor getting real hot

That makes sense. I bet it's a newer generator. When I hook the battery back up I'll check it's output. Thanks!

Re: Ballast resistor getting real hot

Bubba, I've tried calling you to see about sending my distributor to you but no one answers the phone. Is there any other way to contact you? Hope you're getting better. Thanks for the advice.

Bubba will this work? Not sure if it's 1.5 OHM or not.

Re: Ballast resistor getting real hot

Jseery it looks like a stock 6 volt. I need to check the out put. I really don't know why it has a voltage regulator but it does. I just changed it to 12 volt.
