If you need to use two on one axle, my suggestion is to make your own out of steel shim stock to equal the same thickness of the two. This is not my idea but has been around for a while and makes...

Re: 36 Ute thread

My suggestion is to repost it. Unless it was way of topic, I would not see any reason for it to be removed. Or for some reason it just did not post in the first place.

Re: Torque Tube / Drive Shaft Stuck

You did remove the clam shells? Maybe try jacking the rear end back up to lessen the angle. If the car was being driven I would not think the splines between the U-joint and drive shaft should be...

Re: Spindle Arm Nut

You have the wrong nut(s) installed. They should be low profile with a step on the back side to go over the boss that keeps the spindle from turning. That may be part of the problem, yours are too...

Re: Oil In My Water

There is no where that the stud holes would come into contact with oil in the pan to wick up. Now if someone dumped a lot of oil in the adjacent cylinder and there was a bad gasket in that area, then...

Re: Model T Sparkplugs

Unless you have sealing washers with the cores or can find bodies with good ones in them..well lets just say there is more to putting plugs together then just installing new cores.

Re: Oil In My Water

4 weeks wouldn't hardly be any time in the car restoration world. :) While not impossible, it is kinda hard to get oil into the cooling system without being put there, water in the oil not so hard.
