Re: How Many Model A Owners also Own a T?

While I do own 2 T's, but no A, I do work on the A's M-F. Oh, sometimes I refer to the 48 F2 in my profile picture as a 6 cylinder Model A caus' it is a flat head and has a 3 speed. :)

https://www.jalopyjournal.com/

If the notches on the forks are worn, good chance the ball on the lever is too.

Re: brake shoe inspection

Even if you reamed the holes in the shoes, you would then have to ream the rollers and adjuster holes too. I think the rollers are hardened. If you could not fine the oversized pins, you would have...

Re: Rear Spring

Yes too peening. Once the nut is drawn up and the excess cut off, peening turns the bolt into a rivet. The bolt is only there to keep the spring pack together, the U bolts and clamps do the rest.
