Re: Transmission Reassembly

I am having trouble getting the throwout bearing off of the hub. It almost seems like it is one piece. Could you use a multidisk throwout on a single disk trans?

Re: Sticking Starter Switch

You are right about the grommet being worn or missing altogether. The switch rod has natural up and down play but that is not noticeable if you have a grommet. When you put a new one, you will have...

Transmission Reassembly

How hard is it to put a transmission back together to the bellhousing with the throw out bearing and replace the clutch disk? Then put it back in the car and then the rear end all for someone eho...

Re: Sticking Starter Switch

A cut off switch is not necessary if everything is up to date and working properly. If things have not been touched in years then it might not be a bad idea. Rebuild the starter switch. I rebuild...

Re: Transmission Issues

As much as I don't want to cough up the money, I know sooner or later I have to do it. I am going to inspect the gears again tomorrow and make a determination.

Another funny thing is that when...

Re: Transmission Issues

Getting together some people to help take the trans out to replace the disk, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. Hopefully only a few days of work. I will keep you all updated.

Re: Transmission Issues

I would like to know as well. This trans was converted to a single disk.

Re: Transmission Issues

Bad Update: after getting it to run nicely after retiming and some other things, I enjoyed the car. Tonight on the way home my clutch stopped working all together and left me scratching my head and...

Re: Horn Rod Reassembly in Column

Update: Replaced parts in the column and added the upper bushing now so everything is nice and tight with no rattling. Furthermore, I was missing this part on the horn, could that have caused my horn...

Re: Engine Oil consumption

Drip on the transmission plug is normal if it is motor oil as the motor oil makes its way to the radius ball to lubricate it.

Top Hold Down Bracket Screw

Which one is correct for a 28 Roadster? There seems to be these two designs sold for one purpose by Brattons.

Re: Judging Standards on Digital Media?

Not at the moment at least. This has been discussed before on here and many have different takes on the subject.

Re: Horn Rod Reassembly in Column

Mine doesn't have ANY of the rattlers of the bushing which is probably why it rattles and maybe why the horn goes off unexpectedly.

Re: Horn Rod Reassembly in Column

My rod had a weird threaded plug behind the spring which may have been why I was having trouble with reassembly as It doesn't belong.

Re: rear fender patch

Find a fender that is poor in another area but fine in the area you need and then just cut and patch it.

Re: Wind Wings 31 Roadster [fell off]

I agree with you Brent. What is the point of putting all the time and work into something if you are just slapping it together and not doing it right? If you are going to put the effort in, you might...

Re: Spark rod rubbing

Re: Transmission Issues

No, nothing. I have also noticed that it is getting harder to shift too.
