you know, I have to be honest I have not owned a car that you could actually work on that didn’t have a computer since the 70s. With the exception of the new mustangs you can get under the hood and do some stuff and not mess the computer up too much. My 40 Ford is the first car since the 70s that has distributor, four barrel carburetor with a coil LOL. I am by no means a mechanic of any kind and today I took care of a couple of things one if I drove the car and it sat for maybe 15 to 30 minutes it was real hard to start basically carburetor boil. So I put the spacer in there runs great now. But I could not figure out how to get the license plate light to come on. Previous owner said just jiggle the wire LOL and that didn’t work but I ended up taking it apart. It’s just a single wire runs to the license plate holder. But I noticed the wire had a little cut so I’m thinking as it touched metal it worked and then it didn’t work. But after I fixed it it still didn’t work, so I noticed my license plate bracket really doesn’t touch any metal on the car so I ran a wire from one of the nuts on the back of the license plate do a little screw near the bumper..... hey it works now, my first electrical experience really like I said I’m not a mechanic at all.. So the other day my battery did end up being bad and I put in one of the good yellow optima batteries and now my voltmeter reads a nice 13 to 14 before it was like 10 and 11, but I had a question before I fix that license plate I did notice that it was not indicating like that 13 and 14 it was stay in more like 11 to 12 cut that short or whatever in that license plate light cause that voltage drop just curious,?
