Re: Where did Tom Wesenberg post go!

Al, not trying to be nit-picky but 12/2 was Thursday. Has Tom been hospitalized since Tuesday, 11/30 or Thursday, 12/2?? Thanks.

Wishing Tom the best.

Re: Where did Tom Wesenberg post go!

That thread was going nowhere. The good was intertwined with the bad. It needed to be removed. Ryan did the right thing.

Now we can start afresh, hopefully without the haters.

Re: Transmission Roller Bearings

I wonder what bearing Mitchell is using if the "good" bearings are not available? Or does their transmission use a different bearing??

Re: Fuel shut off valve leak

I have found this kit works good on an original valve, repros not so good. Most repros I have seen have "o" rings, not packing.

Re: Fuel shut off valve leak

After you get it to seal again I recommend you install a gas tank screen (pencil filter). https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/product.htm?pid=979346&cat=41707

Re: Model A owners - you'll love these

AK-47's certainly were not designed to go quail hunting. They were designed specifically to KILL people. No other purpose.

Re: Air Filter

Do you have engine pans installed? My air filter fell off once but was "saved" by the engine pan.

Re: New Front Axle

The whole axle moving could be a lot of things, including, as mentioned, the wishbone ball, spring u-bolts, even the shackle bushings and lose spring perches.

Re: Problem With Ford Barn

Thank you Ryan, something like I said back in post #3. All this other BS could have been avoided.

Re: Cost of Running Burtz Engine

I wonder the same. Even a Snyder 5.5 head that resembles a stock head can easily be spotted.

Re: Heavy Oil & Shifting

Yes, heavy oil wil slow the gears quicker. You would probably do good using a multi-grade. I use Lucas 85w-140 with good results.

Do you check the "Remember Me" box? If I don't remember to check "Remember Me" when logging on the same thing happens to me.

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

Ron, I would like to answer that question but unfortunately my speedometer reads quite low (after being rebuilt by a well known rebuilder on here). Next time I'm out I can check my GPS for you, but...

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

No, I start in 1st high, to 2nd high, to 3rd high. I leave it in overdrive most of the time. I shift out of O/D only when I have to on a hill that I can not pull in 3rd over.

I have shifted your...

Re: Body Shims

Yes, they are used all the time in alignment shops for the adjust caster and camber and align other suspension parts. I have also seen them used in body shops to align front fenders and such.

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

I'm curious, does anyone have a 36% Mitchell O/D? How does it compare to the 26% O/D. I have the 26% and like I have said before, I use it more like an underdrive, keeping the Mitchell in O/D most of...
