Re: Carrier side play

I have not been inside the N engine & certainly hope we do not need to any time soon. It is not a modified K crank since the K is a much longer engine. It would be a custom built shaft.

Re: Carrier side play

This car was built in 1907 at the same time as the K model. The fellow who owns this N also owns a very nice K touring. The N has not had much driving since it arrived here after a 9500 mile...

Re: Carrier side play

Yes this is the same car. There was only one built. The axle rebuild & some other work is mainly preventative maintenance, the car is up and running well.

Re: Carrier side play

Thank you both. I will use a brass disc even if I need to make one. The end play without a washer measures .180" . It seems I am working with a model T carrier & N axles in the N housings & the...

Carrier side play

Can anyone tell me a measurement for the side play of the stock T differential carrier? This is governed by the thrust washer assembly.

Re: Convert 1921 Kerosene tail light to electric

Re: Transmission w/no output

It sounds like the connection between the T & the Warford may have failed. It might be a good idea to remove the top of the Warford to see if its input shaft is rotating. If that is the problem it...

Re: Blown Head Gasket

Be sure to clean out the threaded holes in the block - sometimes the bolts bottom out & torque correctly but are actually holding very little.

Re: Schrader valve stems

Re: Flywheel question

Brass tends to work harden with age & use causing it to become brittle. If one screw has broken for no apparent reason, more are likely close to breaking. As well as for the reason Royce stated,...
