Re: Front axle king pin holes

I did think about shims but it would most likely be aluminum and when jb weld advertises stronger than steel I decided to make my shim from jb weld instead. It has 3900 psi of strength so it’s a test...

Re: Front axle king pin holes

Yes but when I compare the two sides of the axle one hole isquiteabit larger than the other. The pin no longer tightens up the king pin

Front axle king pin holes

Hi guys. I had some play in my front wheel so I disassembled the spindles thinking I need new bushings but it looks like the axle hole has worn and is oversized. I read where someone put the kingpin...

Re: Howan i keep my whte wall from yellowing

I usually use SOS pads to keep them clean. I only do it twice a year. Maybe its something in the cleaner that turns them yellow after time. SOS works great.

Re: Model B valves

The only problem is the engine ticks quite a bit. I think the gaps are too big. The warranty is over anyway. Unfortunately the fellow who built it passed away recently. I just want to remove the ticks

Oil leak and knock

My car seems to be using more oil and it has a knock under load. I assume it is the rear main. Can it
Be repaired by adjusting shims or does it need a rebuild?
