Love Jay and his show but rarely watch it although the black and white Caribbean caught our eye a couple nights ago so we saw it. We have also seen Jay in person a few times as part of the San José Celebrity Speaker Series and he’s surprisingly un-funny in those!

As a Pierson (who spells his name right), maybe I should buy it! I wish I could but my shop was made for six cars and I’ve got seven in it.

Did you check the Parts Cross-Reference from the left menu of this site? It shows Napa number 22A1365 which I presume is for cars without A/C.

No worries. The photos made it obvious that it was senior as junior handles are quite different. The one I have without the lock is also a senior.

The issue with a positive ground car is the direction of the spark and the temperatures of the two surfaces from and to which it jumps. On positive ground cars, it has to work harder to bridge the gap and hence the narrower setting. I seem to recall that on my 1940 it was only .025” but I typically set it to no more than .028” if I wanted it to run smoothly under all circumstances.

Brooklin has a 1948 Limousine (which they incorrectly call a Clipper) and there may be others too.

The gap is a big large if still 6v positive ground! Shouldn’t it be more like .028”? Maybe Fred knows for sure.

If my Clipper doesn’t already have one, I wouldn’t mind a signal seeing radio for it! Unfortunately I have nothing with which to swap.

So this week I'll drop the pan (for the very first time) and retrieve the parts. Hopefully no other damage has been done.


Maybe before dropping the pan you can try one of those long magnets made just for the purpose. It might save a lot of time!

Parts like that in the pan are unlikely to cause any damage and my 1965 Cadillac had a piece of the dipstick in there for many years with no harm done.
