With the coil upside down like you have it the electricity will run out too fast.


Don't be silly, of course I shake it first so the bubbles can rise to the top - duh. To all Orange County mechanics tuning in, we are joking.

Yeah i seen them bubbles once in a battery. batterys is so heavy cause they is full of electricity. Sometimes the electricity is so heavy in the clouds it falls down to the earth just like light.

The story continues.

Mowed for a bit but power was still off and that valve lash noise was upsetting me. So two pints of warm XXX from the home brew barrel in my grand daddies pewter mug (geez, that is potent). As I am near the bottom of the barrel there was a lot of black sludge that came out. Got a poker from the coal stove, heat it with acetylene/air and then shoved it into the beer, that mulls the ale and you blow off the excess froth crud. Yummy. You Yanks and your cold beer, it just gives me a gut ache. That's is what beer should look like when you pi$$ it out but I digress...

This gave me the liquid courage to take off the valve cover and look for my rusty feeler gauge. Reset to 0.014", they were waaayy off. So it's early morning and I will recheck my work come first light. Extra courage in a bottle does not often correlate to mechanical precision, so we will see. New coil and a set of 275 points from NAPA whilst I am waiting for my good points to arrive from Haifa, Israel at a great bulk price.

... and you thought I was kidding. Precise timing is God, now where is that old strobe light.

If you VAC owners ask me nicely..... Need to recheck bolt torques too, case used to have a specific warning label on that one on the valve cover, idiot notices are welcome around here.

CNs corollery, a 6:1 compression ratio forgives almost all. These old timers knew fools like me could be working on it.

CNs lament, where have all the quality weather proof ignition switches gone??

I called him and he said he would ship to WI. Right now it has been for sale for so many years you might try offering a pack of Bud. It's lived in a desert all it's life, the secret to longevity.


since you already have an intimate relationship with that vendor - ship it

Sting, two magic words come to mind -- Eagle Hitch. Without that it's just a nice ol' tractor but with one it's an incredibly useful all round machine and those hitches were very powerful and incredibly sensitive in their size class of course. However, a series of pics of you cruisin' down to the ice cream store in your Hudson would do much to alleviate a coalstoveless summer boredom.

However, in the background is a David Brown 1420 that Tenant rebadged Case so it's late in the series as they strove to eliminate that great mark by purchase and confusion. Story has it, after they evaluated the DB tractors they knew they had to buy the mark and eliminate them as competition. The Melkham, England factory was interesting indeed. Ya see the more you get to know me the more I become a source of completely useless information. One of the worlds great tractors, I have a 990 and a 1210 and this would complete the collection. Psst, the DB 990 was the best tractor ever made. Of course, I need another tractor like a hole in the head..... now about that Hudson.....

I recall reading an article recently regarding oil pressure. This guy was saying how 600hp race cars have been known to survive on just 5 measly pounds of oil pressure at idle. If you drop the hammer with that kind of power you'll probably have some copper/brass in your oil, but for what these tractor engines put out, just ONE psi would be plenty. Just need a little film to ride on.

I just finished rewiring a '61 Ford 631. This thing is in mint shape! Runs beautifully now. 6v positive ground. Someone had the coil set up like negative ground, which I'm sure cut a few thousand volts off the spark. I wired it the right way, replaced all the chaffed/melted wiring that was run around the front of the engine (hot as hell there), and fixed some melted wires around the starter solenoid. Also replaced a dead voltage regulator, condenser, start button, and the solenoid. Turns out someone tried jumping this puppy with a 12v jump pack. :lol: I found a puddle of molten lead on top of the battery. I think as bad as a 12v jump was, they hooked it up NEGATIVE ground!! :shock: :funny:

I love people - they keep dough in my wallet. ;)

cured my vac sluggish strating by throwing away woven ground strap which bolted to dash base bolt, and installed a #4 cable, hooking ground end right to bolt that holds starter on to bellhousing. Of course i put solder on ends on it, and heavy multi layer shring tube over ends. Rosin core solder.
