Re: Marvel Schebler carb question

So does this mean you're gonna try to run with an after-market throw-away 1-bbl paperweight instead of a 2-bbl 97 or 94? Should be interesting. Let us know how it goes. Jack E/NJ

Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

I think GM is referring to input voltage on coils with the ignition switch on, the dropping resistor in between, points closed, engine not running. Should be as he stated. About 4volts. Jack E/NJ

Re: Marvel Schebler carb question

Looks like some of the 1-bbl carbs have base adapters that fit 2-bbl intake manifolds. Probably a marketing ploy back in the day to replace those huge 2-bbl fuel hogs..Jack E/NJ

Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

>>>Flapjack, the current coil has around 4 ohms>>>


Heat it up to about 180-200*F in your toaster oven to see what it reads then. Jack E/NJ

Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

Sorry, no first hand experience with 3+ ohm 12v coils. I'm still using a ~50 year old 1.5+ ohm can with external resistor. Mounted away from engine heat. But I've read that German made Beru & Bosch...

Re: Radio noise

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

I don't think it's the same engine or nuts. Just an example of how the nuts should be nearly flush with the top of the studs. The nuts in the last picture look more like grade 5 galvanized to me....

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

Another possible side effect of torqueing that much might be thread galling and filling stud threads with SS. Might be hard to back them off now. Jack E/NJ

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

Don't seem like much of a leak. If it were mine, I'd leave it alone. I agree with Lawson. It might eventually stop all by itself. Jack E/NJ

Re: Synthetic Oil?

It's still rated a 20W oil hot. So 20psi at a fast idle doesn't seem too unusual. What I find amazing is almost no pressure dependence on temperature. My 64 & 05 vehicles show same behavior. ...
