  1. Hey Bloo. Good ideas. I will check those out later today. If I can't see an apparent issue, this might be the first time I get a mechanic to look at the car. I don't want to throw more money at the problem (buying more parts like another coil) and be disappointed they don't work again. I did drive her into the garage yesterday (10 feet). Big day in my life haha. But I would like to take her around the block without the stuttering and backfiring. I'll take a bunch of photos of the distributer parts as well and maybe post them here....
  2. I have changed the I have changed out the condenser with no result.
  3. Hi guys. Finally got my 1929 Graham Paige model 612 running. She seems fine at idle but beyond low rpms wants to sputter and misfire. According to my observations of markings on the bracket, my coil should be a model CR6912C but I have a generic 6 volt coil on there right now. Would the wrong coil cause these issues or is it most likely the distributer? I took it apart and cleaned it and the springs seem to be ok. The point gap seems ok too. I can't figure out why she doesn't like higher rpms.
  4. Hey Phil. I'm using a brand new inductive pickup light. It has to run on 12 volts but my old car is 6 so I had the main power coming from the battery off my Hyundai. Seems no matter how carefully I try to clip on the inductor it picks up other wires. Really irritating. I took my spark plugs out today and cleaned them up, as there was a lot of carbon on them. I've also got a new coil coming as the old one was pretty dicey. I'm thinking of using better insulated cables too. Or I could search online for one of the old neon lights haha.
  5. Thanks guys. I'm going to examine the distributer today for wear.
  6. Hey Rusty. Thanks. I think I had it idling too high. The carb settings are still a little finicky but I'll try tomorrow to run her WAYY lower at idle and check again. Also, I should have someone else rev her for me and see if the timing changes. If not, am I safe in guessing the mechanical timing isn't working right? Seems like I'm getting more than one timing light flash per cycle. Any guess as to why???
  7. Hi guys. I finally got my 1929G Graham Paige model 612 running thanks to a carb rebuild. But now I'm having some other issues with what I can only assume is the timing. I bought a timing light and hooked the inductor to number 1 spark plug. When the car was idling away, the timing spot on my flywheel marked "SP FA" which I assume is "spark, full advance" was lit up by multiple flashes from the timing gun. I made a video that shows the car idling and a close up of the timing mark lit up on the flywheel. If you look near the end of the video, the mark (highlighted by a piece of green maski

  9. From an interesting article about car horns... Another popular horn was the Klaxon, whose name was derived from the Greek word klaxo, meaning "to shriek". The Klaxon produced its sound with an electrically powered vibrating metal diaphragm. The Klaxon was the first horn to need "just a touch" rather than be sounded continuously, to clear the path for the automobile. The Klaxon-type diaphragm horn has evolved over the years and is the basis for today's modern diaphragm horns. Manufacturers have experimented with the diaphragm and sound chamber to produce a variety of sounds. Arguabl
  10. If you want to disassemble a klaxon, inspect and repair it, I did make a video that shows all the steps of doing it. They're really pretty simple inside. The video is posted in the photos/videos section.
  11. Graham Man...love the foot actuated Klaxon. If I ever see one for sale I'll buy it and restore it!
  12. Hey keithb7 that's awesome!!! Ya gotta have some "ahooooooooooga" or it's not vintage. Fellow Canuck here from Niagara.
