Re: A ground for running lights

Kube, I tried that and blew a fuse. So far I have not been able to find the fuse. In the process I broke another wire, not related to the lights, that is difficult to get to. I appreciate everyone's...

Re: A ground for running lights

I scraped off a spot on the bracket to shinny steel and tested with the test light. Still no ground.

A ground for running lights

Why would the front bumper brackets not provide a good ground for my running lights?

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

Mac at VanPelt Sales informed me that I had an aftermarket resistor and he sent me a genuine Ford resistor. I installed it and it solved my problem. I appreciate all of the advise I received from...

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

I overlooked the "disconnect" note. I have to leave for an appointment now. I'll check it further in an hour or two.

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

I guess I don't understand what you mean by "as suggested". I tested it going in and coming out and there was too much drop in voltage. As you can probably tell, I don't know much about electrical...

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

George, I checked the voltage going into the resister and coming out of the resister and it went from 6 volts to 1.8 volts. Wouldn't that isolate the problem to the resister? If I am only getting 1.8...

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

The car was not running when I did the test and I checked it at the resister. 6 volts going in and 1.8 coming out. It takes too long to start and it misses out at low speeds after the engine is...

Re: Voltage to coil on 39 Ford

After reading all of the above, it sounds like I need to replace the resister because I am not getting enough voltage to the coil. Do y'all agree that is what I need to do?

Thanks so much for all...

Steering not smooth in a lefthand turn

I have a 1939 Ford DeLuxe Tudor. When I turn the steering wheel left it hesitates when I get to the 3/4's of a turn of the steering wheel. It then takes a little extra effort to go past that point....

Re: Working the plan?

This must be the shop you were telling me about when I was in your shop last Friday. It looks very nice. By the way, I put the extra coil I had on my 39 Ford and it is running very good. Thank you...

Re: Misses out when the cooling fan is on

My 1939 Ford runs perfectly until I turn on the headlights or the electric cooling fan on the radiator, and then it starts missing out. I have running lights that also come on at the same time the...

I just installed a rear tube shock kit, with a sway bar, from Drake. It has made a world of difference in the handling of the car. Particularly in the cornering. I'm glad I did it. I also put tube...
