Re: Rear leaf spring U bolt

Why are you removing it in the first place? I've pulled several rears and I've never removed the bolts yet.

Re: transmission removal 30 or 31 roadster [not sure which]

Re: transmission removal 30 or 31 roadster [not sure which]

Yup! You got the picture! You don't have to disconnect the rear radius rods. They all move as one unit, Just the brake rods. It's just a cotter pin. Check all your pivot pins they may be worn...

Re: transmission removal 30 or 31 roadster [not sure which]

A word of warning! HEED THIS! DON"T DISMOUNT THE SPRING ENDS! There is sufficient energy in the spring to kill or maim! Leave them attached and take the rear and rear spring out as a assembly. Unless...

Re: transmission removal 30 or 31 roadster [not sure which]

Take the wooden floor boards out and things will become a lot more accessible and you won't spend so much time under neath. A far easier method is to jack up the rear (With the side rails of the...

Re: turning brake drums on conventional lathe

I didn't see any reference to this, but when your turning them, Wrap a long rubber Bungee around the outside dia. of the drum. Brake drums tend to chatter a lot and the rubber will hold the...

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

I hadn't thought of this before, but a high lobed cam will make a engine vibrate considerably, or so I 'm told. I have no experience with high lift/lobe cams so you'll have to discuss it with...

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

Herm, If you're using that drawing that's around on the internet, like I am, then the bulk of the stock removed is on the outer radius of the flywheel. Both inside and outside. I don't know how to...

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

Something else occurred to me after I finished the signing and sealing of my last post. It could roughly be called torquing or twisting the crank upon stopping the engine. I see this old iron as...

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

Reading Brent's post makes me think of of my own efforts to lighten an A flywheel. I believe in a bunch of "Slight" modifications. I don't like radical changes to anything. The Mod. A flywheel weighs...

Re: Rear End Question

I unintentionally ignored part of your question. It is about a major a job as you'll probably do on a model A, short of rebuilding the engine. You must have or borrow a torque wrench that reads in...

Re: Rear End Question

Well! I spent last winter rebuilding a blown 3.78 rear and I went to a 3.54 gear set, Pricey! Abt $700. I'm glad I did! The car is vastly improved over the 3.78. I'd recommend it to anyone. 4.11...

Re: Like picking at a scab: let's discuss 'oil'

Re: Like picking at a scab: let's discuss 'oil'

Just my opinion, but DON"T use a straight weight Non Detergent like SAE 40! I like Rotella 15-40 in ten qt jugs from Tractor Supply. Has plenty of zinc and works well for me. Next is the cheapest...

Re: Clutch Chatter & Flywheel run-out

Agreed! It was a pretty sloppy method! However, In a shop only dealing with a few parts, it would behoove you to machine a center pin for quick and precise locating. Just locate the center of the...

Re: 600w

I used Cornhead grease in my universal joint but only because it , the universal joint, has no "Yellow metal". I don't know where the cornhead sits on the GL scale. GL (Gear lube) To the best of my...

Re: Clutch Chatter & Flywheel run-out
