Re: Second question on the “you know better” rear differential

Is the rear end installed? Guessing if the parts shown were needed he replaced the axles?
Simple check, push the axles in and out and same with driveshaft, how much play? When you turn the driveshaft, how much play do you feel or hear? Did he install the u-joint rivet?

Re: Transporting new ‘27 chassis home

Looks like a good start. You have going to have to pull the rear end or engine anyway to install that transmission. So you can install the missing bolts etc at that time. When you install the transmission, did you get the rear support for it? I would not recommend just hanging it off the back.

Re: New Day Timer Re-conditioner

Look at the terminal where the wires attach, now look inside and see how deep you have gone. The contact inside is only that thick.

Re: Intermittent Electrical Contact - Suggestions?

Could be the connection at the starter post to buss bar inside has come loose. This happens over time when the turning the nuts holding the cable to post twist the post breaking the connection. While you might get enough current for the starter to go clunk, not enough to turn it.

Re: Intermittent Electrical Contact - Suggestions?

As said above clean your terminals. What is the battery voltage and have you cleaned and serviced the timer? Even with a low battery when cranking by hand you should still get a good buzz from the coils.

Re: 1926-27 e-brake cam lever?

Don't think they are reproduced so you are not missing anything. Place an ad in the classifieds or call them and ask if they have any. Oh, they use a larger diameter/longer rivet, those you can get. If you get used ones or if yours have worn clevis pin holes, you can braze them up and renew.

Re: ac mag current "leaking" into dc battery current?

I have LED tail/brake lights and separate standard bulb turn signals with the old style flasher. My brake and tail lights are fine till I use the turn signal. Then the tail lights and brake lights when activated on both sides has a flicker. It's not bad enough to fuss with, so I will live with it.

Re: ac mag current "leaking" into dc battery current?

I don't think it is the switch. I would suggest trying this; mount the light so it is not using the chassis as a ground. Run a ground wire from the battery to it. LED's may be more sensitive to interference then a regular bulb so may be picking up the AC signal through ground. I am thinking that mos...
