Re: Source for epoxy-filled 6 volt coil ?

Thanks for all the comments. I’m going to try the 6V Pertronic epoxy-filled coil, but will carry the original 90-year old coil as a back up.....or should I do it the other way around??

Source for epoxy-filled 6 volt coil ?

None of the parts suppliers selling replacement 6 volt coils provide any detail or specify whether oil of epoxy filled.

What is considered to be the best replacement 6 v coil available ?

Thanks...

Re: Oil Breather tube 20 inch flex tube

Re: Rear Axle Taper - What It Does

After reading all the comments, I think I need to find another carrier/axle assembly that’s in better condition than the one I have. I recently replaced all the bearings and races in the rear axle...

Re: Rear Axle Taper - What It Does

A somewhat related question.....

Re: Axle shims

I found a Model T .005” stainless steel shim that seems to do the trick in combination with the 0.010” shim already installed. Never thought of looking at Model T shims, but they fit a Model A axle...

Re: Put 3 point retractable seat belts in roadster

I like this installation very much, and would like to do a similar installation on my roadster. Where did you find the seatbelts and hardware, and what length belts did you need ?

Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

One supplier told me several weeks ago that they all get parts from the same sources for 90+ % of parts they carry.

Brattons does seem to have some parts made just for them.
