Re: 29 Tudor electric wiper

Just to make sure the motor works, check with an additional ground wire to a real frame ground. Not just some where on the body. If you have 6 Volts at the motor from the harness, then check the...

Re: Does anyone know this generator?

It is a single wire alternator. If it is the early Delco, you can easily get 35 Amps. The two terminals you allude to are for the field and remote voltage sense. The regulator that is used in the...

Re: Generator noise, '30 Tudor

There was a video out not long ago about some young guys that replaced the engine oil with WD-40. The engine finally seized. Definitely WD-40 is not a lubricant.

Re: 12 volt conversion question

The generator will put out over 40 Volts if there is no load. The battery is the load and the limiting factor for the voltage output. You can use the same generator just change the battery to 12V,...

Re: Test your knowledge, what do we have here?

Need a larger picture to get all the details. Looks like a selector for choke from cold air and heated air. Where is the gas line?
