Default Well worn parts

Thought I'd post this picture of a well loved pulley. Came off my 30 farm/barn car. I will never use this part again, but I don't want to scrap it either.
Great conversation starter.

Anyone else with pic's to share?

I still have a poorly brazed wobbly crankshaft pulley that came with my $25.00 Model A Coupe that I purchased in 1958.

It wobbled so much the former owner had a wood wedge between the generator and the engine to keep the belt tight.

Just a symbol and sign of the times when 55 years ago so many Model A's in our area were owned by Americans living in poverty .... former owner had no indoor plumbing and his wife cooked with a used kerosene stove ..... he & his wife were cultivating their garden with this coupe the day that I bought it.

Hi J,

The two (2) side door glasses on my 1930 coupe were "well worn" also in 1958, where they rubbed and contacted the two (2) side window glass channels.

Think I still have them ........ the factory paint wore off of these two makeshift side glasses ..... the side glasses were really an advertisement when rolled up ...... both were made from two metal RC Cola Signs ..... never needed tinted glass.

Now that I think about it, this modern improvement greatly helped with 90 degree inside glass reflections while driving at night.

The banjo in the photo came out of a 28 phaeton that was brought up from Argentina. It was a running car. The banjo is the early version without support gussets. It had apparently cracked in a number of places. The repair was to weld rebar around the flange collar in addition to other weld supports.

Now, that's one to hang on the "Wall of Desperation".

In 1995 I looked at a 1929 pickup that came from South America, but it was so beat up and patched up and still had cracks all over, that I wasn't interested in it. It did sell though for just over $5000.

The carrier half in the photo came out of a running car. The owner wanted the rear axle\differential overhauled. When the axle assembly was removed the sheared hub containing the bearing fell off. The car had been operating with the hub sheared.

My theory is that a mechanic of yesteryear bolted the axle housings to the banjo without any thought to pre-load. The carrier was probably locked. Usually it spins the bearing on the hub. In this case it was probably locked so tight it sheared the hub off the carrier.

Great pictures Tom. Although I don't have pictures, the rear end of my barn car, had the roller bearing on the pinion fail.. The rollers smashed around the inside of the banjo and meshed with the gears. When they looked into doing the repair, they bent the roller cage so no more rollers would fall out and put it back together. There were hairline cracks in the banjo and chunks out of the gears. This is the same car that the pulley is from. Jeff

The attached ring & pinion came out of a "was" running car. The new owner was resurrecting it from a barn find and got it running. On a "short" drive around the neighborhood the rear seized up. There was no oil in the banjo.

Found the same thing. Unrestored diff, seemed to be low mileage. Everything inside in good condition. Just the carrier broken.

I had a car come to me after being serviced by a modern Ford dealer in AZ. One of the many things they stuffed up was, you guessed it - no oil in the diff. Luckily, it hadn't done many miles that way and I saved it but its life will have been shortened.

I did some work on a fresh purchase car, the guy that bought it said (bought not running) "It just had a brake job, that should be good", it had new linings, fresh turned drums, something like .185 over, the drum was less than .020 thick in places----figured I could cut it into point setting feeler gauges----"real ford feeler gauges"
