Re: Original color ignition cable

Guten Tag,

this is helpful, thanks! Then I understand correctly that all cables - ignition and electrical - were black at that time except the ignition lock cable in the steel armor tube?

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Good morning!


In the meantime, my clear distributor cap is largely finished.

Patiently, the current lead through had to be tricky. From 4 short brass tubes I soldered the gradation for the...

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

Update.



Today I received the Ebay vacuum gauge. I restored it gently without destroying the dignified patina.

The gauge is not necessary, but it is a nice sign of the motorworld times. I...

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Danke für Dein Lob! -




The second attempt is successful, not very good but good; there are still some tiny air bubbles visible.

The next step is to insert an electric current carbon inside...

Re: steering gear leaking

Marty,

I have solved the same problem very simple. On the outer end of the gear sector shaft, I slipped a tight O-ring over against the gear case. Then the shaft on this area coated with thin...

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Good evening at all.


Unfortunately, I couldn't find anyone who sells a transparent manifold cover. Creating a file for 3-D part printing is too expansiv. So I now tried to cast it by myself...

Re: another dumb question?

No, this is not a children's fairy tale. Because two things have to be considered.


When the car drives uphill or parks steeply with the nose up, the oil level at the rear bearing increases...

Re: Brake Shoe Lining Information

Re: Brake fades if hot

That's exactly the thing, how you describe it. However, it takes longer for heavy material drums to cool down.

I'm surprised that no other A-drivers, that lives in the mountains, has written that...

Re: transmission, universal joint ? oiling discussion

I use (only!) for this universal joint a thin mineral grease (gear fluid grease NLGI 00) to which I add some MoS2 (molybdenum disulfide).



Addition to # 4: I also sealed the screw connection...

Re: Brake fades if hot

Guten Tag.


I think that the main cause of brake fading does not depend on the gas layer, but that the friction coefficient between the friction lining and the drum decreases more and more with...

Re: transmission, universal joint ? oiling discussion

I installed sealing lip bearings in the front and rear of the transmission so that people wouldn't always show where I parked due to oily oil sludge. That's why I also installed the universal cardan...

Well, you can use it to diagnose when the capacitor starts to go bad.

Re: Brake fades if hot

Erich,

what you write is not to be dismissed. But in this case, I let the pairing of the new pads made with match the material of the drums, namely cast iron.

The brakes grip well, that's why...

Hi, I have very much brake fading, if they get hot.

Is this normal that on steep downhill driving after about 1/8 ml the brakes are so hot that there is only a very little braking power?
