Ford F-3: I have a 1950 f-3 flathead 8. Running fine but quit

Customer Question

I have a 1950 f-3 flathead 8. Running fine but quit suddenly while under power. Battery is fully charged, 6 volts at the switch, 6 volts at the battery, 6volts at the voltage regulator per multimeter. Lights won't turn on, won't crank. Removed ground connection, checked and cleaned. Any ideas? Thanks, Rich

sorry for the delay. the first place I would go to is the ignition switch to be sure current is being sent out of it. check the headlight switch to be sure there is power at the switch. make sure all your fuses have power on both sides. check with a test light. lets start there Roy
