No such thing as a stupid question... Right?
I have a new terminal block for my 1915. I "assumed" wood screws would mount it to the firewall but guess what??
The "mounting screws" are not wood screws, screw into brass inserts on the terminal block, and do not go all the way through the block.
So how is this beast attached to the firewall? This is the only wood firewall I've ever dealt with.
I was also surprised that I could find no "1915" terminal block listed in the multiple vendor catalogs I looked at. Am I missing the boat here?
The reason you could not find any 1915 terminal blocks listed in any of the catalogs is because they were not used until 1919.
The reason you're not finding it is that there's no such thing.
In a stock 1915 there is no terminal block. That didn't come along until 1919 with the starter and generator.
All the above statements are true, but if you want to use a terminal block, Langs sells the one made for wood firewalls. It will have the correct #9 wood screws to attach it with.
Looks like the lights are fed off the upper posts in the coil box.
No, the lights are fed from the light switch which is below the coilbox, which in turn is fed from the magneto post John.
In my 1915 the switch is to the right of the coil box.
Thanks Steve and Garnet.
