years ago I used one in a 6 volt VW to power...are you ready.... an 8-track tape player... worked like a charm...think it was good for about 5 amps so todays low draw radios will do fine...  wouldn't try that 1000 watt amp on it though  :-)

Hello again to all,
After trying many things to get my flathead v8 running good above 2000 rpm. I found that the distributor advances way too soon and goes to about 25 degrees at 1500 rpm. I worked on the internal springs and got it to be about 12 degrees at 1500 rpm. Now it still doesn't run right but I noticed the spark seems to cut out intermittently at high rpm. I checked the gap and all the wiring ok. but I did notice that the points don't contact the cam block (rubbing block) all the time. Could this be a problem? the gap is set to .015
Thanks
BIll

Hello to all
How do I convert dwell percentage to dwell angle in degrees.
I see in the shop manual it states dwell in percentage, but my gauge reads dwell angle in degrees. HELP
Bill

If your cam follower isn't touching always, I would say that points are worn
enough to replace. The Dwell is the amount of time the points are open and
it would be way off if the follower isn't on cam much. Sure the cam itself
isn't worn down?  Or, how about dizzy bushings loose and worn causing the
shaft to move/bounce around and give mis-fires.

My daughter Ami, the ballet dancing car nut who will turn 9 on the
first day of Spring, is teaching herself to identify Ford trucks. She
has expensive tastes, though: The other night she was lusting after a
really sharp F-350 Lariat.
