Re: 24 or 25?

The fenders on a 1925 are totally different then 1924's. They flare out at the bottom, and then turn in at the running board, can't mistake them for any other year. I even think they they are a...

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

NO HEAT, Terry !

Being you had it running, the only way the pistons are stuck, is they don't have enough clearance, and if that is the case, WOW !

So at this point, The motor ran, then slowed...

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

In any case, Terry, there are only 3 things that will stick a motor like that. Mains, Rods, and pistons.

Pistons, if not enough clearance, or dry, lack of oil.

Mains, and rods, lack of...

Re: Main bearing oil leak

Any end play clearance over .006 will start oil leaking. You have to seal the shim packs, and both ends of the main bolts. The oil pipe has to be utilized, and has to be clear of babbitt, and excess...

Re: Crankshaft End Play on Rebuild

If he sets up at .005, or .006., any thing after .006 is wore out, and that is using a crank, with old bearings.

It doesn't make any difference if it is insert thrust, or babbitt thrust.

Re: Possible Model T gear puller?

Try a starter drive in the puller part. I can't tell much size from those pictures.

It looks like the long legs would go up to the Hogs head, and pull against that instead of the end of the...

Re: Bearing clearance

I go with a light feel, on the inside Mic, and the OD, of the outside Mic, also light feel.

With the inside Mic, I move the top of the post back and fourth in the bearing ( the Bottom of the Post...

Re: Bearing clearance

Don't believe what he said about, plastigauge, Mr. Russcc, or a bore Mic. he is wrong about both.

Many people do not know how to use plastigauge. They try to use it dry, and that will give you a...

Re: Bearing clearance

You are right Mr. JSWeery, telescoping gauges should never be used on anything, unless .002 thousandths is as close as you need.

The best, and most accurate, to a .000-10, of a thousandths, is a...

Re: Bearing clearance

Rods and Babbitt don't seem to do much expanding.

Re: Leather rod bearings

I would be scared running a rod with lead babbitt, adhesion to the tinning issues, and a circle groove that is made for oil pressure only.

Re: Bearing clearance

Your .002-50 should be correct at that clearance. With oil, you will never hurt those bearings, at break in.

Re: Bearing clearance

I am not understanding your Question, Mr. 40. I may be still not woke up!

But if you set a 2" crank clearance at .001, or .001-50, you will have a crank clearance at .000, as a Hot crank will be...

Re: Bearing clearance

Main and Rod clearance should be .001 per inch of crank. a 2 inch crank should have .002 thousandths clearance, or plus a half, .000-50 tops.

At .001, or .001-50, you will be pushing usable...

Re: Oil drain tube

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

The Model A flywheels we have lightened run from 69, to 70 pounds. We take two Dimensions off, one inside, and one out side. The total is about a consistent 25 pounds .

Re: Model A flywheeel lightened

A lightened flywheel will not cause vibration, there is something , out of many possible things that was missed, that caused it.
