Re: Mystic noise iside a rim?

Thanks for the praise, Dave! -



I have a question too about this construction. Why did the 21 "rims have hollow flanks? The manufacturing process is considerably more complex than solid...

Re: Mystic noise iside a rim?

Hallo und guten Abend!

Thank you for the much informations. I am a little bit surprised. I was originally a little embarrassed to ask this question because I thought I was a bit of a spinner....

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

Thank you for the plenty of advices! In the meantime I have made the blank tools black glossy.

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.

Re: Fuel shut off valve

Thats a very good hint, Gild Digger! That I'l do too.

In the past I put some big brass nuts in the tank. They scratch the ground.

Re: Fuel shut off valve

Guten Abend,

I have had the same problem. I solve this by lapping the conical rotary valve with valve grinding paste "finely". That's enough for about every 2000 miles.

In order to delay the...

Re: Question about the ignition coil

Gero, that sounds like a short circuit [Masseschluß Unterbrecher]. If the I-coil gets too hot, it draws too much continuous current.

Simple test: do not measure the voltage, but the current. With...

Re: 600w oil

Ak, I don't think it's not talking about about the lubricity of the gear oils. Any thin gear oil is also suitable too.

The focus is on a very highly viscous oil so that the unsynchronized...

Re: 600w oil

My note about cylinder oil:

Cylinder oils are the most viscous lubricating oils that are available. Due to the very high toughness, the gear shaft brakes quickly when the clutch released.

Excuse me, Wade, that I almost forgot your question.
Of course, the process did not go without small scratches and tiny dents. But I tried to keep the patina wherever possible....

Re: Reserve Oil Can

Guten Abend alle miteinander.

After an incredible odyssey, I received my original oil jug after 11 weeks (USPS Fst. Cl.).

I still partially recognize that it was originally copper-plated.

Re: Starter Switch Alignment

Guten Tag!

Tip: The Bendix should not be lubricated. Neither the helical gear nor the drive and flywheel teeth. Contaminate grease and oil + dust and the Bendix becomes too sluggish.

Re: Checking 6 volt neg ground output with multi meter

The easiest way is to measure the voltage of the battery directly with your MM.

Connect - you measure the resting voltage.

Start - you measure the stability / quality of the battery.

Re: Starter Switch Alignment

This fuse does not secure the starter (they very rarely have a high-current fuse) but only the current that is tapped there for the rest of the car electronics.

Re: Manifold/Muffler Joint

N'Abend Curtis,
I use exhaust sealing putty together with the cup ring. If the contact pressure is too low, you must use washers.
