Re: Stock cars 1960

I lived close to Islip Speedway on Long Island NY in the 50s. We could hear the cars from our house and there were many stock cars in the back yards and garages around town.

Re: Oil Leaking from fan hub

The bearing and shaft are not separable they are sold as one kit. See Van Pelts I think ?

Re: Spring spreader for reversed eyes

That might work with just the main leaf but watch out for the pipe couplings. That is the weak link. Yes more angle on the angle irons. I see the reverse eyes were not rolled to tight and your angle...

Re: How To Convert 6V Starter to 12V

If the engine starts properly and the starter isn't spun repeatedly the starter doesn't care what voltage it gets. JMHO.

Front shocks ?

How tight should a front shock be ? I have one that I could hardly move and one that has about one inch free play either way. Should the shock absorbers have play at all ? :rolleyes:

Re: 51 v-8 water pump shaft bushing problems

It is the same bearing as a early chevy like 59 water pump. The shaft is part of the bearing and may have to be cut to your length.

Re: Howell's Panel above deck lid 27 roadster

That's why I thru a 200.00 piece in the scrap pile. I ordered directly from Howell's and spoke to him once then he cut me off. I should have ordered it on EBAY then I would have some recourse. Well...

Re: Howells Panel above deck lid 27 roadster

They are there just to show the lack of curves. No they are not upside down.

Re: Wonky clutch release fork?

I just reread your first statement and noticed that you said the input shaft measures about 7" and your combined bell housings etc. measures about 8". That doesn't make sense. Will the inputshaft...

Re: Wonky clutch release fork?

I thought the Input shaft, the part that goes into the pilot bearing/bushing should be shortened about 3/8" to 1/2". I see you need to replace the input bearing and there is grinding also wear on the...

Re: Wonky clutch release fork?

I thought there should be about 3/8 to 1/2 cut off the input shaft at the point where it goes into the Pilot bushing. Didn't you say the input shaft bearing was bad. I wonder what would cause all...

Re: Howell's Panel above deck lid 27 roadster

The gauge of the steel is to much for my shrinker and I don't think it will pull a curve against the concave of the piece itself. Thank you for your information I am taking all suggestions into...
