I thought Tim was rebuilding them again ….

Let us know who you use, I'd love to find someone who can duplicate the finish on the Distributor I got from Tim about 6 months ago ….

General Discussion / 1/2” npt Heater Elbow
« Last post by urchinhead on Today at 12:32:32 pm »
Is the factory Cobra Jet Heater Elbow 1/2” npt or 3/8”? I am having a difficult time finding what I need for a Streetmaster intake on my 428, which is 1/2”, just like my Galaxie.

I don’t see the size listed on the vendor websites for the reproduction curved heater elbow.

Hello All,
Having just secured the proper C8OF-J distributor from Kelly S. for my 69 C6, I am hoping you'all have a recommendation for a rebuilder/restorer. I reached out to Tim O'Connor to see if he had a recommendation of who may be carrying his torch but I have not heard back yet. Thanks for any help, Dante!

Take the alternator to any auto part store to be tested. Don't spend any money on anything until you know what is wrong. Don't ever remove the battery cable with the car running. That is a really bad move that will normally fry the diodes in an alternator. It proves nothing except that you don't know how to test alternators.


My car is not making but 11.8-12.1 volts when running  (12.6 with nothing on) and when you pull battery cable car cuts off.I have tried two voltage regulators(Scott Drake ) and two Alternators.Anyone have any Ideas

Restoration Tips & Techniques / 69 Mach 1 hood stripe location
« Last post by ffe72 on Today at 07:49:51 am »
Got the side stripe decals behind me and last item is the black out hood.  Seen numerous posts and pics from various members on recommended black paint used to the replace the obsolete PPG Ditzler product, and seems to be no real consensus on this....might just have to get a few of the paints listed, spray them out and make a decision...if anyone has any suggestions on black paint code that they used with pics, it may help me minimize my paint purchases to try this out.

Now onto the black out hood/strip location.  Doing some research and found these two diagrams on the web which shows stripe locations.  Does anyone have an original painted mach 1 hood from a Metuchen car to verify?  Any thought here?

Thank you,

Chris

I'd full field the alternator while measuring the voltage. Pull the plug off the regulator and connect a jumper between the "A" terminal and the "F" terminal on the plug with the engine running. This bypasses the regulator completely, you should see a significant increase in voltage at the battery. If nothing increases, try the same thing at the alternator ( run the jumper between the small "F" terminal and the big red "A" terminal. (you should have battery voltage at the "A" terminal.  If the Alternator doesn't charge then and you have voltage at the "A" terminal, then there's a problem with the alternator. If you have no voltage at the "A" terminal and your car doesn't have a Tach. It may be the ammeter gauge or associated wiring. If it charges with the jumper at the alternator and not at the voltage regulator plug, check the wiring between the Alt and the reg.

If it charges with the "A" and the " F" terminals jumped at the regulator plug, it's the regulator.  ( I'd put my money on the regulator, the repro regulators are junk) If it's the regulator, go buy a motorcraft solid state regulator and switch the cover with one of the scott drake regulators...

Let us know how you make out.

John

PS. pulling the positive cable off while the engine is running can cause a voltage spike and damage stuff, especially any aftermarket solid state stuff like aftermarket radios or ignition parts. Also be careful when using jumper wires on this stuff, it's not fused and you'll get fireworks if you short anything to ground.....

Could be, Ed. As Dennis, said "C9ZE-6675-A, released 7-10-68, is the same as C6OE-6675-A".
