    FWIW, when I changed my tires on the Hawk, I found tubes all around. So, I used them again with the new tires. Never had any problem. Of course, I would not advise this with high performance cars,...

    As Jack said, some (few!) coils have these values written onto them. Most of the the time, you have to use your ohmmeter like shown above to know about this. Anyway, I like to check them...

    Glad to hear about that.
    About your coil, it is always best to fit the original coil with the original distributor, but, as long the resistances are in the same ballpark, you should be OK even if...

    Hey Nox,
    I posted about this one a few years ago but in an other topic. I have this miniature and Franquin is one of my best loved Belgian artists, as well as Maurice Tillieux and Edgar P. Jacobs....

    To get out a stubborn piston, just block all outlets except for one and the fluid entry. Then, adapt a grease fitting onto the free outlet. A grease gun will push the piston in a jiffy. This is also...

    Sorry for the late reply.
    The current to the coil is measured between the + post of the coil and a good ground, with the ignition on.
    You don't need power to the coil to measure its resistance. The...

    Just measure the current at the coil. If you get full 12V, you need an internally ballasted coil. Around 9V and you need to add an external resistance to a non ballasted coil. To differentiate the...

    On a used distributor, it is very diffcult to get accurate settings without a dwell meter, so I would check this first. Secondly, I would get the ohmeter and check that the moving point is properly...

    Even with 165 X 15, you'll be under the height of the original tyre. That is why I would use period correct 5.60 X 15. You might also want to compare the real dimensions of each tyre, as they are not...

    You made me digging into my pile of old shop manuals.
    I have a 1955 and a 1969 edition.
    Both mention 5.60 X 15 tyres being the original size, both with 4 inches rims.
    The 1969 editions also...

    VW used 155 X 15 or 165 X 15.

    You're welcome.
