Finally had some time to install. The Petronix lectronic. Ignition with a flame thrower. Coil. The company made this up for me 6 volt negative ground , Dist module , and the super coil. Fairy quick to change but I lost one small screw , which I later found . Install was ok, but my timing was off more retarded, figured out to take the advance / retard, lever and get the happy spot, And it fired right off, Shut it down and an instant quick start , engine really sound beefy now. Loads of fire. Engine really sounds different, better sound like a real T with buzz coils now. And the engine knock went away. I'm thinking I had the 009 always too far advanced . I took the TT ,for a test drive and maybe some of you are right , I did not yet place a timing light on the engine yet. To see if a centrifugal, reaction was occurring, And it seem to run better if I just manually use the retard/ advance . The results were. Just all in high gear no shifting down found that happy advance spot and it just kept climbing this huge hill , before I had to shift down, and use low pedal, this time right up it with a bag of grocery's . I still can not find the under drive on the Warford, as Eric showed me. It just won't go into that position . Summary. Great more power, happy, really a neat sounding engine at idle now, seems to run cooler, only thing I notice is I have to use the advance - retard rod which is ok cause , I can feel the power band, and it back fires, now when I shut it off . 1925' TT , Truck options are factory , Z head, high flow intake, Chaffin's dual exhaust manifold , twin mufflers, 009 Bosch Dist, Texas T mod, Carb, Pertronix ,special 6 volt electronic ignition, and flame thrower coil, 89 octane, water pump, Auburn Ca, service center , cool T , radiator, 6 volt system with large cables, custom Bill ,at TExas T oversize disc brakes , electric fuel pump, Kevlar trans bands . 30 weight engine oil , deff and trans 80/150 weight
Sounds great, just need to hang some H shoes on the back. Did you know a John Wild doing shoeing and breaking around Auburn-Tahoe area a few years back?
I did not know, him, Took TT out tonight. And it's actually fun to drive more than before. Had a blast tonight with help of the three day weekend and good Ale beer. Just to the Neighbors to help pull out his. Model A generator/ regulator.
The 6v P systems had a lot of problems, there have been several threads on the Ford Barn about them failing. Apparently voltage changes from a generator caused the problems and cars with alt did not have the problem. The 12v systems did not seem to have a problem. I put one of the 12v systems on my 34PU with a 59AB and it does work well.
The Pertronix modules are actually the same whether 6 volts or 12 volts. Only the coil is different. If voltage in the system falls down to say 5.5 volts you are on the vulture wagon.
I've been using the same Pertronix module for over 20 years in one of my muscle cars. It provides the same performance as a perfectly adjusted set of points.
One thing Steve found is that installing a Pertronix module in place of points retards the spark slightly. In any case you need to check the actual spark event in relation to piston position or you can cause the starter bendix, ring gear, or your body to be damaged.
