  • 28-29 popout

    While not in the standards I believe the popout bezel was 'square' in profile till mid to late 28 (top) and rounded over after that (bottom). opinions?

    My re-pop bezel, that Dick did, is square. I'm going to send it back because it has no number. The others have the rounded edges. May be Maffi or Doug may know..
    It is interesting.

      Hmmm...repop. may be, I don't remember having a 'square' one on a later popout. could be. this one is numbered, but the stamp is weak due to the re-plating. I'll have to check the font used. Cal Allen did the rebuild on this one.

        All of the originals I have had were beveled. This includes the one that I bought with the bannana end cable. While I am not certian the cable was original to the switch. Rod

            Would it be more accurate to say 28 to mid 30, when the speedometer changed from oval to round?
            I believe the switch and cable length changed at that time, didn't they?

              Ignition / Pop Out Aftermarket and original Electrolock, Armored cable
              by Mitch
              A common issue with intermittent drivability and all out no start conditions can be traced back to the ignition switch. Originally Ford used the pop out style switch, which also served as their anti theft device. Over the years many cars have had the original pop outs replaced by a conventional style switch. Many of these newer replacement switches are cheaply made and can really drive you bonkers...

              Rebuilding an original ignition cable.
              by MikeK
              Yeah, that long springy thing from the dizzy to the popout switch. Even if you just use it for looks, without the original popout switch there is quite a bit of heat exposure. Not just any type of replacement wire inside will do. Remember whatever you put inside that popout cable should be capable of surviving repeated heat cycles and withstand 212º+F (100º+C) if you overheat (Never!).

              ignition cable
              by Art Ebeling
              I did ask on another thread but thought I should start a new topic. How does the ignition switch cable head apart to rebuild replace the key door and obtain key codes etc?

              Pop-out Switch and Ignition Cable Question
              by BudP
              Bratton's 2018 Catalog on Page 78 has an ignition switch test, copied below. It states that with the ignition key off, there should be continuity using a multi-meter between the brass end which goes into the distributor (their point B on the chart) and the cable (their point C on the chart). Les Andrews states essentially the same thing in the red book on Page 1-203, paragraph 4, copied below....

              Inside speedometer cable too short?
              by Bobsie
              Trying to get my speedometer working on my '31 Vicky. I assembled everything took a drive, speedometer worked for a couple of miles then quit. Changed nothing except to install a speedometer cable ordered from Mike's.

              Troubleshooting, took the cable off the speedometer in the dash, a quick drive and clearly the inside cable spins. Took the speedometer out and ran it with my drill and...

              Original Nov. 29 to end of production Ford Battery Cable
              by Midwest Tin
              GM All,
              Does anyone have an original battery cable that they can post photos of showing both cable ends for the November 29 to end of production 19" cable?
              I would like to know what I'm looking for as the standards do not show the ends. The following photos show what I have. Can anyone identify the cable ends in the photos if original or not? Also added two more photos showing another...

              Part Warning
              by DaWizard
              Since this is the second speedo cable I have purchased from Moss, I was informed they get them from Snyder's, so I am sending out this warning. The internal cable for the 28/29 is too short if you use the stock outer cable!!

              It will fit but when pushed all the way into the depth of the turtle, it is short in making it all the way into the speedo square and you need it all the way into

              Can I use an early 30 pop out switch in a mid 30 (round speedometer) instrument panel?

              RGJS - Speedometer Casing/Cable Finish?
              by Neil Wilson
              Anyone know where speedometer casing/cable finish information is in the RGJS (i.e. this is the casing/cable from the speedometer to the torque tube).
