Re: Flywheel wobble

If you were in the process of rebuilding the engine the procedure would be to check and true up the flywheel and/or crankshaft flange. If not in the process of a rebuild, and there is no clutch...

Re: Tire Pressure

Thanks guys. My tires did not look too low but I was surprised they were only aired up to about 15 psi ! Just not that obvious when they are low. Checked and confirmed max pressure was not posted...

Re: Fan to Water Pump Fitting

Went through the exact same drill. Cleaned up the pump snout with a file and was good to go.

Australia Fires

Watching the news and thinking about our friends down under. Remarkable damage and loss of life. Hope it ends soon, and be safe until than.

Re: Revising gear box

Concur. The smooth machined surface must contact the release fingers.

Re: Welch plug for carb

Concur with the tap and plug route. Not for mass production but great for a one off.

Re: Having trouble with high-boy air filter

Mine stays on very securely. Seems like a very solid friction connection.

Re: Revising gear box

Believe the through hole is to allow any oil that passes through the bearing to flow back into the trans case. The seal on the bearings will limit the penetration of oil past the bearing but will...

Re: Standard vs HD Clutch Disc

The rest of the story. Put in the standard duty clutch disc and now engagement is slicker than a crooked politician. Nothing else was done to the clutch system. The HD disc is used on truck...

Re: Clutch slipping.

On this side of the pond most would just send in their old pressure plate for a rebuilt unit at a cost of about $125. Typically the rebuild would consist of new springs and a precision resurface of...

Re: Running Poorly

Had to give my engine a good dose of MMO directly through the vacuum port on the intake manifold to free up the valves. Smoked big time but ran great afterward. Could probably shoot some MMO...

Re: Running Poorly

Try some Marvel Mystery Oil before doing any serious disassembly. Sounds like classic sluggish valves.

Re: Clutch slipping.

Need to go the whole route. Flywheel resurfaced, replace pressure plate, pilot/throw out bearings, clutch disk. That clutch disk is an oldie ! Need new style with shock springs. Need to determine...

Re: Spring shackle bushings: Rubber or original?

I'm with Tom. Spring shackle bushings are heavily loaded on transverse systems. Steel, bronze, or brass will likely withstand the elevated stress better than synthetic material. As Werner...

Re: Repair Rear Shackle Mounts

Probably easier and safer if the rear axle is pulled. Might also have to pull the brake backing plate to get direct centerline access to the perch bore. The radius rod will have to be removed...

Re: Pilot Bearing Question

I'm with Pat. Clearance of .002 is little more than a sliding fit. Not sure the mods described are warranted. For serious slop a new input shaft/pilot bearing would be more cost effective IMHO.

Re: Transmission Assembly

If the cluster roller bearings are worn or damaged the countershaft probably needs to be replaced. If so, might consider new shafts with the O Ring configuration which may minimize oil leakage. ...

That is part of the Float A Motor kit that consists of a bracket that attaches to the U Joint housing and perches on the crossmember above it.
