Re: Banjo rear end lube capacity?

Keep in mind that the original 600w oil is not made. Whatever is being marketed as 600w is some kind of modern synthetic oil.

Re: Air Filter

Air maze was an original aftermarket accessory that everybody seems to remember simply because the design was duplicated many times over the years. There was probably some different designs in the...

Re: New Front Axle

Rotorwrench the 7 degree specification is correct. A friend has a set of the gauges just like that.

Re: New Front Axle

Rarely are front axles not repairable. They are sometimes bent but they can be straightened on a press. The difficult part can be removing perches if they are damaged.

You can check your axle for...

Re: Phaeton/Roadster Rear Window

Re: Front wheel bearings

I was always taught to tighten the nut until there is no play and everything turns smoothly. So pretty much the same.

Re: Replace differential seals and gaskets

It sounds like your rear end might need a general overhaul. If your seals are leaking they are either pretty old or original. To do that there are some special tools.

Re: newly rebuilt and a knock

Something doesn't sound right with your drive gear spring under the valve cover.

Re: What type of grease should I use for an A-17270-FL speedometer gear case?

I would either use mystic 6 grease or Timken Bearing grease since it sees a lot of rotation (though these gears are very hard to wear out).

Re: Urethane vs Base Clear

Base clear is definitely easier for a novice painter. That is why I think the industry went that direction simply because lacquer pailed in comparison and you didn't need to be as experienced and...

Re: Fitting a shaft to a distributor

I use a hone. The bushings are usually .5 inches ID. I like the finish a hone does, reamers are quite rough. It doesn't take much.

Re: 1931 Instrument Panel

Bill has got it right. Dan Bixby might also have one restored or a good original. I am running a instrument panel of his.

Re: Front spring arching and replacement?

I have seen it done many times. Many shackles wear through the bushing and into the perch meaning some welding needs to be done. I don't think it is worth the trouble trying to get the perch out...

Actually the parts business was part of it. It looks like it is going to turn out good.

Re: Fried rear bearing

Rich sold his business to a guy who already does engines and they are in the process of training. But they are not doing any new work.

Re: Clutch Adjusting 101

That's just the thing: I think most of the 600w you buy from suppliers isn't really like the original 600w but a modern substitute. Whether it makes any sifference is up for debate.

Re: blasting

Another off topic point to make is many use the term sandblasting as a blanket term to cover any type of abrasive blasting. Most people are using coal slag these days.

Re: wheel painting fixture

Alternative option is to take a modified razorblade and cut most of the paint material out of the holes.

The ideal way is a long pole between two horses or stands so you can do it all at once.

28 Roadster Side Curtains

Looking for a used set of 28 Roadster side curtains. Probably a long shot because the material has to be tan whipcord which is only a 28 thing.

Re: Throttle Bracket Shims

Well since you never pulled the flywheel off you can't really tell what is there. There has to be either a gasket or some permatex between the block and flywheel housing.
