Re: MTFCI National Tour Cancelled

Got the same message. Guess they decided not to wait until 1he 15th. They had to consider that folks would be coming from many states.

Re: brass top coil rebuild

Toon,
Thanks for your reply. I just used one of the fiber spacers used on the brass top with same result. The capacitor is connected between the upper and the lower bridge. Are brass tops wired differently than regular coils? Thank you.

Coil hint

After rebuilding a coil I throw the used points in a drawer. I seem to have trouble throwing away something that old. Now, when the upper bridge needs to be elevated for proper alignment I snip the brass holes from a used upper bridge. They make an excellent shim. FWIW

I have an A1F on a Swan manifold. Its the reverse of the one that you pictured with the intake flange reversed as well. The lever that you circled appears to be brass or bronze. I could loan it to you if that would help.

Re: Help ID aluminum high compression head

The head is identical to the one that was on our Coupelet that is now in the Piquette Museum. It was driven many miles with excellent results. It is a Jensen head, made by Rod Jensen in Chicopee Falls, Mass. It was advertised in the Vintage Ford magazine in the 60's.
