Re: New Brake Shoes

I just re-lined shoes for AA. Fortunately I had 20 shoes to pick and choose best ones. Most shoes showed little wear in pin holes. I’m sure you could weld up and re-drill worn ones if you had to.

Re: Radius rod is too long

I realize it’s different, but yesterday I was reassembling my AA rear axle after complete rebuild and experienced similar problems. What I learned was to leave everything a little loose until totally...

Re: Tire price hikes coming at us

It’s called inflation, no pun intended. When the government prints money like it’s free it devalues what you have in your bank account. I saw where one South American country removed 6 digits from...

Re: 2 Tooth Steering Sector

Mine was not easy at all to get off or on. I had to resort to fire wrench. I made a special press set up with a hollow pipe and hydraulic jack. I packed sand around it to keep hollow shaft from...

Re: 2 Tooth Steering Sector

I replaced both worm and sector on mine. Quite a chore getting that old worm off and new one on without damaging hollow shaft.

Re: Starter and fly wheel

I just put a new one on and had to heat it a good bit to get it to slip on. After it’s cooled I can’t imagine it coming loose. Appears pretty tight.

Re: Vise help

Probably not what you had in mind but I have two of the old blacksmith post vices and they are nearly indestructible.

Re: How do you all test for an intake manifold air leak?

I always mixed a little gas and oil together in a pump oil can and squirt a little around suspected leaks.

Re: Snow Chains

I ran a lot of tire chains over the years on work trucks. The strap on ones not so good, they will destroy themselves if you spin wheel any.

Stopping a Model A, stopping a AA

Re: Exhaust whistle: where to install?

I don’t think they are legal in my state but if you use antique plates you don’t have to have inspections and can get by with it I think. The cut out itself is what isn’t allowed.

Re: Water pump questions

You could build up a little brass on the end of the shaft to take up for wear on the head to eliminate the end play or add a little set collar. My old pump had the set collar on it so I re-used it...
