Re: 6v Alternator

I know you can ground the #1 terminal on it momentarily and it will start charging.

Re: 6v Alternator

I have the one available at the Model A parts dealers, but the one on my other alternator is even smaller.

Re: Hi Compression Heads

I think I will try 28 degrees max after I retorque the head a couple of times.

Re: 6v Alternator

Thanks, I figured that was the case, just wanted other opinions. The alternator in my other Model A seems to have a lower cut-in point but that may be due to the little-bit smaller pulley.

6v Alternator

I converted a GM alternator to 6v positive ground with a kit. Installed it on my 29 Tudor. You have to rev the engine to excite it to charge. Is this common?

Re: Hi Compression Heads

Installed my Snyder 6:1 head. My engine is .100 overbore so the compression ratio will be a little higher than 6:1. Does anyone have an idea how much higher? Where should I keep the timing? About...

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

Never used a Mallory, but I would think you would need some initial timing to start out. I would get a timing scale and maybe start with 12 degrees or so initial and see what the advance curve is....

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

After rechecking everything the cam gear dimple is only about 1 1/2 degrees off. I do feel much better knowing that TDC is marked on the pulley with a scale using the piston stop method. Much easier...

Re: Electrical motor to produce vacuum...is there such thing?

If using 12v later model Diesel trucks use an electric vacuum pump to operate the A/C and Heater controls.

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

OK, since it will be raining for the next few days, I decided to go ahead and install my new Snyder 6:1 head. After I got everything apart and all cleaned up, I wanted to find actual TDC since it is...

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

Was playing around with timing. Not hard to start until almost 30 degrees. I now have the initial set on 19 degrees. No problem starting at all, sounds very good but it is raining so a test drive is...

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

Thanks. I was thinking the B timing cover was 9.5 crankshaft degrees. That's why I earlier set mine on 9.5 degrees. I will try 19 and see how that works.

Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

I was wondering if 17-18 was too much initial, but now you mention it, I am only getting about 12 or so advance. (I actually have 3 Model B distributors that I have refreshed and they all top out at...

B Distributor Initial Timing

I have read a little about the B distributor and I am using one on my 30 Huckster. What I am not sure of is what initial timing I should set it up on. I have a Nurex Timing timing tab set with the...

Steel Wheels

Would love the 15" or 16" steel wheel with Baby Moon hubcap look for my Huckster. I know some have to have a small spacer to get past the ring on the drum but what do I need to look for? 4 1/2" or 5"...

Re: Hi Compression Heads

Snyder's called me today and wanted to know if I still wanted a 6:1 head. I said sure, send it to me so I should get it Saturday or Monday. Cool that they didn't forget I was on the waiting list....

Re: PCV valve good idea?

Maybe too much open area around the rear main to be effective.
