Re: T-5 transmission kit- who's making them?

The owner of Auto Restorations unfortunately developed Alzheimer's Disease, and they are out of business.

Re: I'm Baffled by this!

Hi, Getting back to everyone on the noise issue and this "baffle". First of all, it is not a baffle or slinger like used in the original transmission. This is used in a Mitchell transmission only...

Re: Can incorrect main bearing oil grooves be filled in?

I purchased a used running '31 engine with low miles. Upon inspection I found it to be in very good shape. However the main bearing oil groove for the rear bearing has an additional groove cut in...

Re: Camshaft timing gear rattling noise

Sorry Dan, forgot to answer your two questions:

"why on earth are you tightening the cam gear nut to 100 ft-lbs??? 30-40 is plenty IMO."

Re: Camshaft timing gear rattling noise

I finally got around to swapping out the aluminum gear for a laminated one. There is no noise now. See the video below. I have driven it about 200 miles.
So far, so good.

Re: Camshaft timing gear rattling noise

I have a standard size laminated timing gear. James Rogers had suggested I try this a while back. I'm gonna give it a try. I will update when installed.
