    Cruisercorps aftermarket brakeswitch

    My brake switch gave out and I picked up a replacement from Cruiser Corps. This aftermarket is much larger than my OEM. After failed attempts at shoe horning this thing in I asked Cruiser Corps. They recommended I use some vice grips for leverage. Well this didn't work at all. ANyone here use...

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    Well I hate bad news, but it's of my own handi-work. The dizzy may have come out when tuning or I may not have seated it in completely from the get go. Thinking back I actually ran the engine closer to 5 or 6 minutes rather than 15 - 20 minutes, but either way it sounds like the rear main seal...

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    Mark, I ran an 8 gauge jumper from battery pos terminal to the point of connection between the ignition wire and the coil positive. I got the engine to turn over, but that's all. I walked over to the ignition switch and in a few moments the engine is running smoothly! I will still need to run...

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    I dug up my original coil, Ill try swapping it in tomorrow to see if there's a difference. If the new coil is not rated at the original's voltage that COULD have something to do with this issue. In the very least I could try running the same tests tomorrow with the original coil installed.

    Tampered with? only by me. Blew the engine and just dropped in the rebuilt F. Wiring hasn't changed. Took a million pictures before pulling the engine just to make sure everything went smoothly, but poop hapens.

    wow , all these years I never realized my Chiltons 66-74 manual was wrong. My manual doesn't show any differences for these years so I never bothered to look at Coolerman's files until now. Thanks a million!

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    ok; top terminal (connects to coil +, which leads to starter) gets 12VDC when starting bottom terminal (connects to carb and to Black/Yellow wire (ign switch) gets about 9VDC before engine dies)

    dropper resistor? thats the component on the side of the coil correct? I will test for voltage on both sides of the resistor

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    went through fuses, found one bad fuse (tail lights). Still can't get engine to stay on. I tried slightly rotating the distributor and confirmed I have it in the best position. Any ideas? Points or coil?

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    I was troubleshooting the fusebox, but notices my wiring diagram in my service manual only has 6 fuses, but my fuse box has 8 fuses. Am I looking at the wrong year manual?

    Finally back together, but trouble starting.

    Dam! Just tried again. Engine only runs if I hold the ignition on, but I can't do that too long since it will burn up the points. Any ideas?

    Hi everyone! It's been a long time. I'll be moving soon, so I finally had an excuse to get the cruiser up and runner. After a long sloooow rebuild, I finally have everything back together and am trying to start the cruiser. I put gas in, fixed a few leaks and everything feels great. Engine...

    Wanted Need an exhaust manifold for an F motor

    I blew the engine coming down from a camping trip 5 years ago. I now have a 3 year old and 4 year old so you know where my time has gone. Soon I'll have pictures of my kids standing next to the cruiser, the same exact cruiser I posed next to 40 years ago!

    Wanted Need an exhaust manifold for an F motor

    Makes sense, the two parts are a bit of a puzzle. I'm sure everything will work with my Aisin carb which already rebuilt. Shoot me a price or PM me
