Re: Clutch won't disengage

Try with the 2" or so free play. Try the easy stuff first, and either fix or eliminate that as a consideration.

Re: Rear Block Babbitt

I do not understand the 2nd pic. If the cap is cocked as you show against the "seal" something is seriously wrong. I take it you know the pic is not a rear main cap? The oil groove is wrong, but will...

Re: Clutch Adjustment Rod

One inch free play is usually not enough unless your clutch is worn. 2" is about right. Do the gears grind when putting it into gear when stopped? No need to double clutch going up. Maybe you just...

Re: Clutch in Noise

The fingers may be depressing to far and hitting things as noted above. Had the same problem. Increase clutch play from 1" to around 2".

Re: Clutch Stuck Disengaged

If you look way down pasts the pressure plate you should be able to see if the input shaft is turning. You can also see if you can get it in gear without grinding. If it grinds, the input shaft is...

Re: Feedback on modern tube shocks for Model A's

I have a set of tube shocks from one of the suppliers, and while better than nothing, they are a bit stiff. I took out a leaf from the front and back spring which helped. With the heavier cars that...

Re: Poor quality transmission roller bearings

I just bought a set of roller bearings from Brattons. I was uncertain if they were "dimpled" or "axled" so took one apart. It was the dimple type. Called Bratton, was told these were all he could...

Re: Timely Parts delivery

Re: Are the supplier's "v8 STYLE pressure plates" really for tractors?

Check with Brattons first. I bought a pplate thinking it had the counterweights because of the picture, and it was the tractor type when I received it. Maybe different now.
