  1. 12 volt conversion and the fluid drive

    Wired up the car to 12v, but when i came across the transmission wiring, it overwhelmed me, so i left it for the last task of wiring. Haven't been able to get it wired correctly to shift normally.

  6. Six volt resisters in a 12 volt system

    Gentlemen, would doing this to the fluid drive trans, also work? Adding a resistor(s) to the tranny, make it shift(work) as it use to? Thanks for you time and knowledge

  9. The State Of Urban Freeway Driving

    Being from o.c California, I travel the 5,91,605,710 freeways in my 51 coronet flathead. And my buddy also in his 49 Plymouth. Bone stock. Little by little we've been getting more "umph" out of the Lhead. Cruising at 65mph slow lane sharing . Some people don't care much and swerve around, others mean mug us. But nothing that the bird can't translate better to show that I don't care.
  10. Modern distributor used in the flatheads?

    Hello gentlemen my name is Jose. I'm new to the forum. After reading and surfing the forum so much as a non member, it didn't allow me to surf anymore. I have 51 corenet, just received my Langdons HEI distributor. And after reading the pros and cons. The pros convinced me to get it, but I don't want to have that slight chance of failing on me. So my question is, has anyone actually VIDEO taped the "How to" of the distributor swap ?The car is my daily driver bread winner. Can't afford to take the bus... Thank you for your time and wisdom....
