  • Anti-creep valve.

    Does anyone have any idea of the amp draw of the 6 volt anti creep valve that holds pressure on the rear brakes? I'm trying to figure out how to use it with a 12 volt system.

    I don't. But I know this, if you can do it.

    Hook an amp meter up on the valve while on a 6 volt system and measure the amps. Then you can do what it is you want to do with a 12 volt system. But I don't know if you have a working 6 volt system. So this is worth it or not.

      I dont have a calibrated amp meter, I have a working 6 volt system in my 53.

        I don't know how fancy you are thinking on this ammeter Tom. $10 at Radio Shack gets you a combo meter for AC, DC volts, ohms, and amps.

          I've got what I've always called a VOM, Volt Ohm Meter, it has scales for AC volts, DC Volts, Ohms, and DCmA. Isn't that milleamps? If I run from pos 6V to the meter to the valve to neg 6v isn't that going to fry my .316 amp fuse?

            Is it not simpler to get a 12 volt valve?

              It is my understanding they discontinued them with the change to 12 volts. Do you have a 12 volt valve, Bob?

                They still have 12 Volt anti-creep valves. I think Chuck Collins or Stelford has them

                  I think I have one of those (12V anti-creep that is,) I ended up swapping to a 4-speed instead of keeping the automatic when I swapped the engine in my '55.

                    Tom, to measure amperage you don't place the probes "across" the circuit. You place the probes in "series" with the circuit. I'm not familiar with the circuit you are talking about, but in general terms this is what to do. Disconnect the ground wire connection. Attach a probe of the meter to that 'wire' and the other probe to ground. The amperage has to travel through the meter thus rendering the measurement.
