Don,

I had the same situation. Could not hear myself think in the cab. I tried
a couple of devices but gave up and replaced the motor with a 12 volt motor.

Hey all,

I need to drop the voltage to my 6 volt heater motor from the healthy
12 volts my alternator is putting out. That heater motor sound a lot
like an Electrolux running on 12 volts. I have heard of using an
ignition resistor as a voltage drop, but I wonder about this. Any ideas?

A few list members have asked why you must "register" before
using the web BBS. They correctly pointed out that most BBS
systems don't require this. The reason is simple: spam.

Systems that don't require registering allow automated email
address harvesters into them. Registering is a process that
an address harvester cannot do. Therefore, you can safely
use our BBS without fear that you'll end up on spam lists.

Now returning you to our regular program....

Steve
Had the same problem in my 55. Used a voltage drop device but it got so
hot I decided to go with a 12 volt motor... I still have those voltage drop
devices if you would like them...

Subject: FTE Pre61 - More Brackets Needed

Got the side bracket for the generator, the one that mounts to the side of
the block. Forgot about the other two and now I am up against the wall
because of the World of Wheels show in Boston.

If someone out there has the two front brackets I will gladly accept a quick
COD shipment.

The ones needed have the following part numbers:
The top bracket from the water pump to the generator # EBV10156-A
The lower (adjusting) bracket #FDE10159-A

We are still searching for the correct interior. A few of you offered to
take picture and cut a piece of material but have not heard from anyone
since. Also, need a 55 Horn Button.

If anyone needs a GM single wire alternator let me know.

Thanks in Advance

Howard

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Engine Color

Just got through my mail and finally received the information from the Ford
Museum about our 55 F100.

After defending the yellow color through two years of car shows I now come
to learn that the Power King 317 was red with silver valve covers and black
air cleaner.

So much for brochures. We now have the motor pulled and will be blasting off
the yellow and redoing it right.

Just thought someone might like to know.

Don,
My guess is that it will be too small, and may not handle the power
required by the blower. The 6 volt ignition resistor has about 2 volts
across it with 5 amps or so through it which may be too little for the
blower, but here is how to test it. First you need a voltmeter, doesn't
need to be real good just so it measures volts. Put the ignition resistor
in series with the heater, torn the heater on high (if it has more than one
setting) then quickly measure the voltage across the heater after it comes
up to speed. If it measures from 5 to 8 volts, it is close to the right
resistance value. If the voltage is over 8 volts you may need two of them
in series, if under 5 volts you could try two of them in parallel. Having
found the correct value, you will probably need to mount it inside the air
duct or someplace where the blower can keep it cool so it doesn't burn out.
Also be careful when you do this, that resistor will get hot enough to
leave it's imprint on your skin. 8 (

Roger Meier
