Re: Side mount spares - Left, Right, or Both?

Re: Setting glass

Re: model A with a stromberg 97 stalls at highway speeds

I had the same problem, and it was the diaphragm pump. I went back to the vane pump and my problems went away. Both were Carter pumps sold by NAPA.

Re: Pilot bearing fit

The pilot bearing is a press fit to the flywheel, but not a press fit to the input shaft of the transmission. If it was you would not be able to install the transmission.

Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

Do you mean "cutting the drums"? I see no reason to cut the hubs. sometimes cast iron drums can get quite hard if they are overheated.

Re: 1931 Ford Deluxe roadster stanchion liners.

The original stanchions were stainless. The cups were steel. Liners were stainless and spot welded in a few places to keep them in.
