  1. It's to bad about the cut off switch, because when we are working on the engine and it is much easier to twist the cut off wheel, then disconnecting the cable.
  2. I had a battery cut off with the green wheel for on and off. I've had it on the car and no problem. Took it off the car today and problem solved. Not sure why it became a problem all of a sudden. Also, super bonus, I've had a low end miss just above idle for about 6 months that has been driving me crazy. I tried everything to try and solve that problem. Miss is now gone. WTF. Another lesson on looking for easiest solution. I've always had a problem with the rule "Don't fix it if it is not broke". Thanks everyone for all our help. Frank
  3. I've been experimenting and the problem occurs more when the engine is hot. I've checked the cables and grounds and they appear to be correct.
  4. Car runs great except for one problem😀 Car doesn't start until the starter disengages, then starts. Starter turns over fine but car doesn't start until I stop the starter. Is timing to retarded? Help.
  5. I have heard that Autolite 306 and autolite 308 work also. Any comments?
  6. I guess they don't make AC 46 anymore. Recommendations?
  7. What is the latest info on SM and SN oils? What oil is best for my 39 Buick? Heard so many stories.
  8. Thanks, looks like it may work. I'll check it out.
  9. Hello, can anyone help me with finding a steering wheel puller for a 39 Special. I've tried O'Reillys, etc. and the pullers they have do not fit. Thanks, Frank
  10. HI George, I video taped the gauge with my phone during the test. If you want to share your phone number I can text it to you. MY number is 209-768-4345. Frank
  11. Stabilized at 20 at idle, bounced 20 to 15 at higher rpm when miss occurs randomly then back to 20 at idle. Only stabilizes at idle. Will test again tomorrow. I never let it idle for 2 minutes, is that what you are suggesting. I held the higher rpm for 2 minutes and it never stabilized. Maybe I'm not understanding.
  12. I remembered, Classic exhaust systems was the one I used before. Maybe just replace the muffler. If this solves the problem, I'll give everyone a full report.😀
  13. According to the manual that came with the vacuum gauge, it means a restricted exhaust. Time for a new muffler anyway. How do I describe to the shop what kind of muffler I need. There was a place that sold pre bent exhaust systems but I for got the name. I've bought a few in the past. Getting old is not good for the memory.☹️
  14. Oh yea, the misses do not happen evenly. They jump around and are not synchronized..
