Re: Procedure for check bearing clearance

Thanks, that makes it clear.

Got me thinking, can anyone explain this, and maybe how one goes about installing a shim pack in the first place?
How does a good engine builder typically decide (or...

Re: Procedure for check bearing clearance

My book says .001 - .0015 clearance.
Is this correct?

I’ve never used plastigauge before.
Looks like this is the one I need, yes?
Green one is .001-.003

Thanks

Re: replace wheels with steel wheels. help please.

I think there’s enough of a difference from standard 19” wheels/tires to 16/17” wheels to justify the cost.
I’ve swapped on two different cars.
The ride is better, the braking is only slightly...

Re: Perch Pin Play...

Model A axles are cheap, I’d get a new one instead of trying to add a bushing.

Although, it’s possible it’s not the axle but the spring perch that’s been worn.
If not torqued properly, it happens.

Re: Early V8 axle under Model A front end

Don’t know how I forgot this.. too much to remember
33-36 axles are all the same as Randy states.

I’d still suggest using 32 spindles over the model A.

One more thing, you’re going to need a...

Re: Early V8 axle under Model A front end

35 creates problems as stated, add modifying the wishbone to the list.
Basically, it’s not a direct swap.

If you use a 32-34 axle, I suggest using the spindles as well.
There’s not much room for...

Re: Removing rear spring

This is how I do it and donít use a spring spreader.
Assemble/disassemble in place.
Much easier to (un)install the main leaf then add/remove the rest.
Still requires caution.
