Re: Installation of parking brake coil spring ?

I just completed this exercise Sunday, not fun.

First thought was these repo springs must vary in resistance from original. It's one of those projects having you wonder "How did they do this on...

Re: Ford Script Distributor Body

Steve,

Easy enough to check the clearance between the rotor tip & contacts in the body, .025 - .035.

Re: stationwagon

Glen,

I friend of mine had a set made at a local auto top shop for about 1/2 of what he was quoted from L&B. If you have old curtains for patterns, better still.

Re: 31 model A rear end question

Jim Brierly,

" ...modern 90 wt" ???

Not a challenge, respect where & how you've driven your Model A's, so you probably have a good thoughtful answer. Appreciate it if you share.

Thanks, jb

Re: clutch replacement

Jim,

First step is to determine if the car has a single disc or multi-dice clutch. A single disc, similar to your 33, is your decision how to replace.

New parts for a multi-disc haven't been...

Re: clutch replacement

First question for your friend, what type of clutch ? 1928 Fords mostly had multi-disc clutches which are much easier to remove & reinstall attached to the engine.

Check first.

Re: "600w" trans lube foamy.

37,

I support the idea of double checking the clutch free play. A single disc 1929 clutch should have 1" free play. The clutch needs to disengage cleanly, no drag. to shift without chirping...

Re: "600w" trans lube foamy.

37,

Not fair for me to comment on either Bratton's or Synder's 600w gear oil as I have no clue how it is created but I have used both. More recently I've been using 140 gear oil from 'Sta-Lube' &...
