Re: Babbit vs Inserts

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have read the same thing. My model A has run for 90 years with the babbit, why change and invite new types of problems? Jack

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Pictures would be helpful. What is the sill? Is it the top piece on the door? Jack

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Bob, Does it go on the door frame in the car top and back or does it all go on the door like the front piece. Jack

differential oil

I rebuild my differential and now it is time to fill it up. The fill is on the down side of the pumpkin and I don't see how to get oil in it. Any ideas? Thanks Jack

Re: Cotter pins

My question was more toward the nuts and bolts. I have used stainless nuts and bolts where I don't want rust to be seen and wondered if the strength was the same as the standard steel bolts. Jack

Re: Cotter pins

I would like to ask another question on this subject. Are the stainless cotter pins strong enough? I have never known if the stainless bolts are as strong as the grade five bolts for example.

Re: Valve spring issues

People say 60# but what amount of compression does that mean? Is that pushed down 1/4 of an inch or 1/2 or what? Jack

Re: Rear spring shackle

Mine sound just like Floats. You can put a match stick in between the pin and the bushing. My car is a 2-door 1931 with a leaf removed from the rear spring. Better ride??? Thanks for your replies....

Rear spring shackle

In rebuilding the rear axle, I replaced the shackles with new ones and the new sleeve bushings. I did not ream the bushings as they are already to large. You can now rock the spring back and forth...

Re: Radiator cooked corn??

I placed moth balls around the car during winter storage. It seemed to work but it took me a year to get the smell out. Not the pleasant peppermint smell. Jack
