Just a thought. If you have nickle plated headlight rims (for H glass) you should sell them and use that money to buy Brass ones. Repro's go for about $25ea. A pair with a good patina (shiny for some - worn for speedster builders) can get $50.

Re: Modern advances in the lubrication of the original roller type timer

Wouldn't Distributor Cam Lube directly on the surfaces needing lubrication work? Remember getting small capsule with the points back in the '60s-' 70s. A dab kept the cam lubricated for couple of thousand miles.

As suggested the battery cable size should be verified, to thin a cable would cause a voltage drop. You may have more issues w...

I'm sure someone can answer this questions. What will eventually happen to a 6 volt starter attached to a 12 volt battery? Especially if is cranked to long. What are the symptoms of a dying Model T starter. If your starter switch was smoking it may have been a sign tat you starter is fried.
