Re: '29 CC PU assembly confusion

I went and found the old blocks.

The blocks that fit at the rear of the cab have only one hole....so only one bolt.

Pictures are of a reproduction set, my old set, and the rear cab blocks by...

Re: '29 CC PU assembly confusion

So I took a couple pictures.

The two bolts seen from below in post #8, are at the back wall of the cab behind the seat. (You will notice that this is a different ccpu from the one in post 8.)

Re: Coil mounting position.

Here is the way I did it...as yet untested though...

The condenser is attached to one of the cowl seam bolts, and the flag end is loose for now, but the idea is to slip it under the nut that holds...

Re: Gas cap mystery

Maybe, the person that added the gaskets was not the same person who soldered it closed.

Could they have been using it for a radiator cap?

You could use some solder wick and remove most of that...

Re: Rear Brake Assembly

I'm sure that is what I had to do. One large bolt at the torque tube end and the two at the brake back plate ought to do it.

Re: Tie rod and drag link rubbing

Re: Tie rod and drag link rubbing

My tie rod/drag link also showed signs of rubbing. All the wear marks were rusty just like the rest of the tie rod so what ever caused it was in the forgotten past. We have owned the ccpu since 1962....

Re: Timing Issue

I'm thinking you could find the cam gear dimple with the timing pin, as normal, and then visually check the #1 piston for TDC by looking through the spark plug hole. If you need to turn the engine...

Re: Timing Issue

When I pulled the one off my old engine, it was pretty well stuck on there.

I used a HF gear puller, which is all I had at the time, and heat....the engine was on a stand.

As it was I ruined...

Re: Timing Issue

The timing mark on the crank gear should be on the tooth that is aligned with the right side of the keyway, as viewed from the front.

How were your gears aligned?

Well I hope there are some good ones out there, specifically the one I have (made in USA) that has been fine for 2000+ miles so far.

Re: Water pump core differences
