Re: Babbitt Work needed in IL. Anyone!?!

One or two thoughts to ponder. Properly cast bearings will typically last just as long, -if not longer than inserts will. The key here is ensuring the poured bearing material is of the proper...

Re: How much paint?

Your 8:1:2 mix ratio sounds like Axalta's cheaper paint line. In essence, you are only getting 5 sprayable quarts when mixed. We tried the Nason line back when DuPont owned it and felt like the...

Re: How much paint?

I am not trying to be disagreeable with the advice you have already received above but your question is much akin to asking 'How long does it take to catch a fish?'. I'm not sure we can give you an...

Re: The model a drag link/pitman arm

I'm not a genius but my opinion is the reason the Pitman arm ball location is on the inside is to gain more clearance for the L/F tire to clear the drag link on a left-hand turn.

Re: K R Wilson Combination Machine

Yes, you beat me to that statement. Tool makers with cylindrical grinders can (re)sharpen a reamer and make it undersized, ...and many bedplates that were worn have been converted to an oversized...

Joe, I hope you don't get mad but I'm going to offer a little different perspective on what you have stated, -with the exception of your last paragraph which I think is true.

Re: Flywheel ring gear pin

A stock flywheel with a reproduction ring gear is actually installed with a 0.0015" interference fit. The ring gear is heated and then slipped onto the flywheel so that when it cools, it will shrink...

Re: O-ring groove in flywheel housing

Ok, I now see where you are coming from on the 6 bolts. The 'warpy housings' actually are caused by the driveline. The rear wheels/tires push the vehicle thru the rear axle housings and along the...

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

Yeah, you can almost stake your life on not being able to have one restored in 6 months. They only do that type of thing on TV shows!! :D

Also, even in a pressurized scenario (-which the Model-A block is not) the...

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

Ironically, when you go back and consider many of teen-era and earlier automobiles, those were "throw away cars" also. The technology that was coming on each subsequent year's automobile made them...

Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.
