Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

Do you have the baffle in front of the rear bearing ?

The rear bearing is supposed to let some gear oil past like post 3 mentions .

I use SAE 140 in the u-joint cavity .

Re: 32 front wheel shimmy

Agree if the balls aren't worn at all .
If worn you get loose straight and bound when turning .

The 5 turns works on most with a little wear . .

Dry country there ....

Re: Model 40 Door adjustment

Your hinges are bent .
The part that bolts to the body should be straight .
Your second pic shows both body and door segments badly bent .

The hinge in my pics is how they should look .

Re: Model 40 Door adjustment

Does your lower hinge look like this ? This one is not sprung like many . Post pics of yours as this is the main cause of your issue .

Re: Cabriolet window channel

Looks to me you spring loaded side felt is still there . These are NOTHING like other 34's . These are to help keep dirt out and lube in the rollers .

Re: 1934 Tudor needs a little hop-up

Unless you have a very strong engine don't go more than 3.54 on the rear gear .
They get pretty doggy with a 3.25 rear gear .

Stock wheels on 33-34 cars are indeed 17 " .
