Default Scumdog Has A Question!

"Hi Ray, Could you post these pics on Squarebirds please? And post the questions: What is that 'extra' thing that is piggy-backed onto the CVR and what would happen if it was removed? (My original CVR did not have it)
I fitted this one to my '66 ( a bear of a job!) and the gauges worked but I think they were reading a tad low -plus I could see the oil gauge needle constantly move left and right a little at a steady speed with a cold engine. I would appreciate it it greatly if once again you could post on my behalf! Regards,
Tom."

Here are the two pix Tom sent me.

That is a choke, windings of wire to act as an inductor. Since your original CVR was made with contacts that rapidly opened and closed, Ford included a choke to tame down the current.

Solid state CVRs don't have contacts. Whether you remove or leave the choke makes no difference because a solid state CVR delivers constant voltage. - Dave

Yes, Cody. Whenever there are points quickly opening and closing, that radiates a signal that the antenna picks up and amplifies it over your speakers. CVRs cycle the same way but at a slower rate.

An inductor opposes a change in current. A capacitor opposes a change in voltage. They both smooth out spikes but in different ways. - Dave

Default Scumdog Has Another Question!

Tom sent me this email and is looking for some of these for his '66.

"Hi Ray, Again I need your help!
The tail-light surround is lacking a few of these screws. (I blame Yellowbird as he was there when I lost them!)
They go through the black area of the anodised tail-light surround.

Anyway I ordered a bunch of likely bolts & screws from a supplier thinking these ones would be amongst them - but none of them match these screws and I could not see any that matched them when ordering the screws.

So, could you please post this pic with a request to Squarebird members for advice on what the description of them is and who/where supplies them. Again thanks for your assistance.
Tom."

Tom, look down in the For Sale / Parts Wanted Forum. One of our guys is parting out 2 Flairbirds as I recall. You should be able to contact him and see if he can extract those screws from his parts cars....

Here is a pic of that screw.

Tom, I called Clint but caught him out. I left him a message to call me, and told him what I was calling about. How many of those screws do you need?

I only need half a dozen ( from memory!) Ray, thanks for your efforts.

Tom, in view of what Martin said, please get me a complete count on the exact number you need so I can update Clint. Thanks!
