Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Sorry folks. What does the resistor have to do with the starter circuit? I thought the resistor was only in the ignition circuit to control voltage to the coil.

Re: vacuum source

As far as I know, itís just a fitting. When I had it apart,I could see through it, so unless a previous owner did something to it,itís just a fitting to make the connection.

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

My post on the solenoid was obviously wrong, and I learn something new every day on this site. When did Ford start using solenoids in the starting circuit?

Re: vacuum source

Forgot to attach this picture of the vacuum source. The silver colored part with the hex goes through the banjo fitting with a copper washer on each side of the banjo.

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

When you say it doesnít click or anything, I would suspect the starter solenoid. Jump from the battery direct to the starter to see if that works.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Generator getting hot

Did you polarize the new generator? Do a search for polarize, and you should get lots of information.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Generator getting hot

If it is connected/working, the ammeter on the dash will give you and indication of charge/discharge. If a generator is over/under charging, the issue is often with the regulator.
