Re: 7-tooth steering box rebuild questions

At some time or other a previous owner of my roadster found a small oil resivor (sp) like from a steam engine and screwed it in. It is like a tiny funnel with a cap. It stays there. Works great, but...

Re: Brake assembly, Roadster

Werner, are you sure the arm pins are welded? Usually they are peened with a hammer, and may look like a weld. Try grinding the ends off of the pins at both ends and pushing them out with a hammer...

You have seen these, as you sold my roadster...twice.

But other than those I have never seen them, have to be rare.

Re: Emergency brake issues

The cotter pins, especially the one connecting to you actuating linkage need to be on the inside of the arm, you will note the head of that pin is very small so it clears the drum. If the pin is put...

Dealer Step Plates

My 29 roadster has step plates with the Dealers name cast into them. I have only seen one other set but they were not on a car. I am assuming these are fairly rare??
Just curious how many others are...

Re: Alternative horn button for an F1

Wanted to say thanks for the suggestion of the Limeworks setup. I put it in today and it is a pretty slick setup. Pretty easy if you have the column out and apart anyway.

Re: Rear axle shaft nut, how to turn on

Werner, check to see if the pin in the parking brake linkage is in correctly, the cotter pin should be on the back side. If not the end of the pin will click,click on the back side of the wheel studs.

Re: Engine Water Jacket Cleaning

I too have used vinegar. Since you said it is out of the car, just leave it in for about two weeks. It does a good job.
