  1. Years ago I had a book called the LEJAY Manual. In it were plans to use a Dodge Bros. Starter Gen for a Arc Welder.. Maybe that is what the rig was set up for.
  2. I have converted both cars to Pertronix. End of problems.
  3. Well, no I am referring to the 12 volt Starter/ Generator single unit system.
  4. I am putting diodes in the Ness Starter boxes and I just noticed the printing on the back plate at the battery terminal is stamped " + battery" The wiring diagrams I have looked at on the 1925 era DBs all show the Positive terminal of the battery going to ground (positive Ground) so why would they stamp the identity of the battery terminal with a Positive? I have always connected them Positive ground but now am wondering why they would stamp that terminal + when it should be stamped - ? This will depend on what type of diode I will use, case anode or cathode. If someone hooks the battery up as negative ground the starter/generator will of course start cranking the engine if I put the proper diode in for positive ground. Do most of you have them connected positive ground as the wiring diagram shows. With the old cutout relay it didnt make any difference unless yiou are using a pertronix ignition module in the distributor. Thanks
  5. Try The Pertronix Module. They work Great. No more points or condenser.
  6. 24 Dodge is 12 volt I am quite sure.
  7. I will make you a pair of keys for $10.00. If they dont work dont pay me.. gary@siebring.com Need pix of keyhole and code number.
  8. Might be a good idea to polish and oil the theads on the headbolt studs so they torque up right.
  9. Please give more information on the problem. Does it turn over, it turns over but wont fire? , what?
  10. I would remove the filter and see if that makes a difference. It requires very little vacuum to raise the gas 4 ft.
