As we all know, 90% of fuel problems are electrical. As my runabout became a hard starter in recent weeks I dismantled two different carburetors and went through them looking for something to fix, and found nothing. With either one on the car, a cold start took several pulls of the crank to get going.
I'm currently reassembling my touring car, and as it needs plug wires I decided to use the black/red-tracer wires off the runabout because those are allegedly correct for 1923.
So I bought a set of terminals, and this morning I made a new set of wires for the runabout. After installing them I choked twice and flipped the switch to BAT. Free start. I tried it again, several times. Each time I got a start on the first pull or a free start. Apparently I've solved my fuel problem.
As for those wires I was going to use on the touring, you can probably guess what I'm going to do instead.
Good for you! Nothing like solving a problem- even if by accident...
They look like modern plug wires. Is that how you made them ???
Those "original" type braided wires are junk.
George, the Model T terminals came from Chaffin's. The wires came off this roll I bought over thirty years ago. I have no recollection where I got it.
What kind of core ??? Solid copper, stranded,graphite ???
So now you'll be making sets for us folks?
