Re: Isky 1007B Track Numbers

That's great - thanks Glenn for the rapid reply.

Isky used to quote opening and closing angles at .020" and .050" lift.
Are those numbers available somewhere?

Isky 1007B Track Numbers

Hello from England.
Some years ago Tom Hutchinson in Baldwin Park, East LA, provided me with an Isky 1007B "track" camshaft but I didn't get a cam card and I can't find a spec.
What are the numbers...

Pistons - which is front?

My flat top pistons are not marked with the usual arrow to show which way to install the piston - which way forward.
One side face is plain whilst the other is slotted, so which of those is the...

Military Axle Shafts

Is there any difference in the axle shafts that were fitted to military vehicles compared to passenger vehicles?

1932/33 Chassis Differences?

Hello chaps,
Searching for some information detail here.
The 1932 chassis frame rails had the well known swage line and the central K-member. What changes were made for the 1933 model?
Swage line?...

Re: Another 11A post ......from Bubba

Your experience is always refreshing. I would be very interested in the details of that advance curve - static, 1500, 2000, 2500, all in at 3000?

How do you think that should be modified on a...

Re: Traditional fuel system for duel carbs?

PeterC - is that a crankcase breather plumbed into the top of the blower?

Sorry, George, don't want to hijack your thread.

Re: Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

My instructions were to remove only the high spots, leave the gouges, and then hone to see what the finish looked like and felt like. As I said, it is rung so that's a good start. Now that I have it...

Re: Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

I decided to give the job to a machinist who used high speed diamond to remove the high spots. A good axle shaft taper was used to turn a lap from aluminium, which was then used to hone the hub...

Re: end float - how much is too much

Plate thickness less snap ring thickness = 0.050" so the retainer needs to have an upstand of 50 thou on its gearbox face. I don't know if such a thing exists but Mac will be along soon to tell us. ...

Re: end float - how much is too much

It seems that the thickness of the plate plus the depth of the register in the rear mount/bearing support is not allowing the support to do what it's there for - to support the bearing and hold its...

Re: Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

"Knocking down the high spots" is what I aim for, then usual lapping to a good axle shaft. I've come to the conclusion that a spiral taper reamer is probably not available (at any reasonable price)...

Re: Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

Re: Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

Thank you for all the thoughts.

I expect it not to be cheap but it is a special Ford hub/drum and I have only one pair.
I agree - a spiral taper would be most desirable.

Damaged Hub Taper - Reamer?

A rear hub key fractured, the hub spun on the axle shaft so both tapers were damaged. The axle shaft has been recovered by careful filing and lapping to a good hub which is now in use.

The only way to remove the clips is to cut them in two and try to lever...

Ford U/J Split ?

There must be a way to dismantle the Ford universal joint in the driveline - some clever way to get those wire clips out - but it beats me.

I give in - how do you do that?
