Re: Introducion

Today was an interesting day. 33333 made. Unfortunately, I do not know how often the speedometer has already turned around.

Re: Dimensions of hood edge protektor

Dimensions of hood edge protektor

Hallo und guten Morgen.

I am just sewing the protector-corners made of leather for the rear end of the lower engine hood.

Can someone please tell me the size?

Re: Thermo Quail

I have a note about the quail thermometer insert. After about a year of sunshine, the original red display line has faded more and more and is now barely visible....

Re: torque all head nuts

Guten Tag!

I know from previous literature that torque specifications apply to unlubricated threads.

L. Andrews writes e.g. b.: dry 55 ft / lbs = lubricated 40 ft / lbs.

Re: torque all head nuts

Thanks for your hint, Katy! I had mistaken water-soluble polyethylene glycol for ethylene glycol. In this case, the correct name for radiator antifreeze is ethylene glycol.

Re: torque all head nuts

Thanks to Dave, Synchro, Wade, etc.!

Right, the risk is too great now to damage the cap screws.

I can hardly read all the posts, because of course this is very tough and cumbersome for me....

Re: torque all head nuts

Hi,



as previously written, I had drawn the dry (no oil) C-head scews with 65 foot/lbs. It has gotten better, but not yet well-sealed everywhere. A few traces of water are still sweating...

Re: Spark plug gap

Guten Morgen,

modern spark plugs with for example Iridium electrodes tolerate a significantly larger contact distance.

(I drive the NGK 5 EiX with 0.35 ".)

Re: torque all head nuts

Guten Abend!

Now my additional note on the "modern" head gasket type:

Unfortunately I can confirm the note from Wade in # 15. After about 550 miles I see that the head gasket is sweating...

Re: Mystic noise iside a rim?

Yes, a hollow pipe is harder to bend than the same pipe diameter made of solid material.

Re: Mystic noise iside a rim?

Re: Mystic noise iside a rim?

Thanks you both for the quick replies!

Do I understand correctly that the two rim shoulders on the bead are hollow on the inside? And can drill a little hole from the outside in it?

Mystic noise iside a rim?

Guten Abend.

I found something very strange noise on a rim that I can't explain. When I turn the wheel, I can hear a sound as if sand were falling inside.

First I pulled the brake drum off...

Re: Correct horn rod push button tension spring...

Guten Morgen Pluck,

under my horn button (1928, 7-tooth) was a barrel-shaped coil spring.
But I can not say that this is original, because it could be seen that the button was previously opened.

Re: Colors of original tool kit

But I have one more question about the tool bags. Was the entire tool loosely placed there together?...

Re: Speedometer error

Hi Bob,

correct. With the wear of the tire rubber the outer diameter is minimally reduced. As a result, because of the smaller diameter the wheel turns faster than a new wheel for true spped. Your...

Colors of original tool kit

Hallo Freunde,

how was the look of the original tool kit that was delivered with the car from the factory? Black gloss / matt / silk? Or silver blank without coating?
And how was that packed?...

Re: wiring harness

No. The current is directed to the individual contacts via the three point-shaped brass contact plate that you can turn from the steering wheel.
