Re: Making an A axle steer easier

I'm more of a tractor guy than car, so you'll have to do some splainin to me. When I jack up the front axle, what am I looking for besides obvious looseness in the king pins?

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

I'm using A tie rod ends.The balls on the tie rods and drag link from the A are the same size as the John Deere.
Is there a general rule of thumb as to how tight the tie rod ends should be? Do...

Making an A axle steer easier

Now that winter has set in, I'd like to do some work on this thing to make it a little more drivable. One of the problems is that it steers hard. Part of the problem is likely the Deere steering...

Re: Front hydraulic brake conversion.

Posed the same question on a speedster site and a guy linked an article on using hydraulic wheel cylinders from an older Mazda to activate the original A brake shoes.

Front hydraulic brake conversion.

Awhile back I posted some pics of the speedster I built using John Deere parts and model A axles. At this point, I have only model A rear mechanical brakes, no front brakes, but in driving it, it...

Re: Not model A related (entirely) Kindig-it-Design

I like most of these shows too, but sometimes the drama gets a little much. "Oh my God, now we have to replace a wheel bearing!" You have a lift, and $100,000 worth of tools. I think you can handle...

Re: My A Deere speedster

Really? I had just asked someone a few questions about whether it was eligible, I didn't know that anyone had signed me up or that they even knew my name.
It still has some issues with the clutch...

Re: Clutch drive train, what's going on here?

It has a clutch and engine from a John Deere model "LA" tractor. I think that I have pressure plate issues.

Clutch drive train, what's going on here?

You can see my post elsewhere on here regarding my Deere speedster which has an "A" drive train. I am still having clutch linkage issues. If I jack up the rear wheels with it in gear and the clutch...

Re: My A Deere speedster

Not sure why this has become an issue, but it's an LUC engine from a combine. Same as in an LA tractor. It is a two cylinder, flat head, vertical built at the John Deere factory in Moline, Illinois....

Re: My A Deere speedster

No one claimed it to be a “Johnny Popper”. It would be pretty difficult to mount a two cylinder vertical transverse engine in a car.

Here is the reason I had been asking questions on here the past few months. I was building a speedster with as many John Deere parts as possible. The radiator is from a "GP" tractor and the engine is...

Need a 6x6 U joint

Without going into all of the gory details as to why, does someone make a 6x6 spline U-joint like the one shown here?

Re: T engine hooked to other tranny?

I have an old A engine but not a T to compare it to. How much bigger physically is an A engine?

Re: T engine hooked to other tranny?

Never thought of that. Might be better to look for something out of an old dodge or something.

T engine hooked to other tranny?

Thinking of building a replica of another car, of which none are known to exist. A T engine would be about the right size, horsepower and speed, but the other car had a more or less standard clutch...

For actual transportation and not as a collector car?
In the early 1960s, our rural mail carrier would sometimes deliver mail with one when there was snow on the roads. I was just a little kid so I...
