Re: Cam Choice

You did not mention gear ratio or exhaust system which will factor into your decision.

IMO, any advice you receive here is just based off of speculation since it is unlikely that anyone actually...

Re: Steering Box LEAKS!!

One of the things that needs to happen during the restoration of a 2-tooth is the sector housing really needs to be placed on a 1.125" lathe mandrel and spun between centers while facing the end of...

Re: Steering Box LEAKS!!

Leak, ...or weep?

To begin with, if it is leaking out past the sector shaft, whomever set the clearance between the bushing and the shaft missed their number. It is also possible they installed...

Re: Rear Wheel Bearings

I wish that were the case in my world. I would guess that 75% of the ones I see have a worn axle race, a worn hub, and a bearing that the case-hardening is worn thru from lack of lubrication.

Re: Hood hinges - tube or rod?

Yes, very true however one trick to make it a tad easier is to thread a tap into the end creating an internal plug. Then use a long rod inserted thru the opposite end and rattle the rod out with an...

Re: Hood hinges - tube or rod?

Yes Gary. Actually, I misspoke on that that one as there is actually one other place besides those too.

Re: Hood hinges - tube or rod?

There are 3 places in a Model-A where this rolled tubing is used. Wanna take a guess where the other two places are>>

Re: What is this?

My vote is it is a Free-Wheeling Transmission. Many car manufacturers (Studebaker, Buick, et/al) equipped new vehicles with this device.

Re: Valve seats with pits

No not really. Carbon will begin to collect and before you know it, you will have a valve not seating which ultimately burns the seat & the valve. You did not mention whether the pitted ones are...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

They really are not radius-ed, but it actually has a 45 machined chamfer, -and yes it is correct.

And Yes, that is my drawing of the Fork.

Re: Can rods be checked for straightness without special equipment?

Brendan, I guess the true answer to this is what do you call 'special equipment'?

I guess one way is if you have a good lathe and a knee mill, you can machine a mandrel for the big end of the...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

Not a misprint. The size of the ball is not machined to 0.500" or ".

I think where some people started that misinformation (-besides reading it in Fordbarn and then telling it to others. :D) is...

Re: 1st gear is slightly jammed

There are several things that can be causing this in which pictures won't tell you. I have a fixture (-pictured below) that checks the fork area to ensure that it is not bent. Probably better than...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

You do not need to have them write a program on this. There is 0.004" tolerance on the shift forks, and the same on the shift lever. One word of caution though, the ball on the end is NOT "...

Re: Lightened Flywheel

I'm pretty confident that all Mr. Kelley's balancer did was add weight to the center of the flywheel. The flywheel mass (-of any weight) cancels any affect of the flywheel mounted balancer when they...

Re: How do I

To begin with, Teflon tape (-or any type tape) is a 'no-no' in this area on fittings.

Second, the reproduction fuel line must be re-shaped to match the original line. I have attached a photo...

Re: Lightened Flywheel

I did not search for it, and was only working off of memory that you had asked something about it. The link I posted is the one I started several years ago.

Re: Stubborn Tight 2-Piece Valve Guide Won't Come Out

Re: Electronic ignition advise

The logic behind this is indeed great. Yes, electronic ignition systems are everywhere. So with that said, everyone always seems to use the word "should" stating that "if" you make sure you have...

Re: Electronic ignition advise

'Should' is the operative word here. Perfect world scenarios often counter 'real world situations'.
