  1. Hi Curti, The process is known as "cam ground" and there is plenty on the net about it. It is regarded as being desirable but probably refers more to aluminum pistons. Regards Al
  2. In New Zealand, these late T's were known as "new Beauties". I'd be interested to know if this was a local term or more widely used. Regards Al
  3. '39 Chevy tailights are pressed, not cast. Al
  4. Hi Larry, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all. A recent death in our family caused a road trip south and I am in the process of catching up now. I will pass your information on the the Krit owner and he can do some research. Regards and thanks Al
  5. I have found a listing on it in an old Automobile Engineering book. It says it is a single unit 12V system but that is about all. No wiring diagram. Al
  6. It sounds as if that is the exact unit, as shown in my pics back further here. I think it is going to need nutting out as information is scarce. Thanks for your help. Al
  7. Hi guys, Mark, the brand I am looking for a diagram on is Disco, not Delco. Thanks anyway. Larry, looking at the photo of the Disco unit, it has less connections and is a single unit, whereas the '15 system appears to be a two unit style. If that is all we can find, we may have to see if it offers any help. It is similar and it is not hard to believe it is made by the same company. Regards and thanks Al
  8. Any luck Larry ? Regards Al
  9. Thank you Larry. I notice the top diagram you posted is a "DISCO" brand. The owner told me it was "ISCO" but it is obvious to me now that the "D" forms the border and DISCO it is. Regards Al
  10. Hi Larry, Thanks for responding. The car is a model KR and the starter and generator are made as one assembly. The brand is ISCO and quite different to the North East product shown in your post above. Certainly different ! Regards Al
  11. Hi, Is there anyone who knows about these? I know someone working on one and he wonders what the three terminal posts are on the starter and four on the generator. None of my books cover KRIT or ISCO but I'd like to help him. Regards Al
  12. Looking for a nice clean one to replace the one on my car that has had a concrete graze. Left and right appear the same so can you help please? Regards Al New Zealand
  13. Probably from a truck or some commercial application. The solder plugs are designed to melt in a fire so that the diesel tank doesn't explode. Regards Al
  14. I've got a few 6V Optima's fitted and their performance amazes me. I've never had a charging problem either so as my lead-acid batteries fail, I'll be fitting more Optima's. Al
  15. Hi Phillip, An 1172cc engine belongs to a English Ford 10 but they are later than 1936. In 1936, there was a Ford 8 (Model Y) and it was 933cc. You obviously need to establish what it actually is so you might need to wait until you see it. Both are little flatheads but I don't think there was a coupe body style. More likely a small two-door sedan. Regards Al
