Re: Transmission bearings

These came from a different vendor and, to be fair, he told me what they were when I bought them. I took a chance and lost. Can't blame the vendor. I have some that are from Europe that the vendor,...

Re: Transmission bearings

Re: Transmission bearings

Thanks Tom, I saw this last year and couldn't find the good bearings so I got and installed what I could find. This is the result. Touring season and the touring car is down.

I'm hunting for...

Transmission bearings

I replaced the 7118 and 7121 bearings in my transmission with the current production bearings from a major parts supplier. They were the Chinese bearings. 1,200 miles later they failed. Looking for...

Re: what kind of grease gun are you using?

Lincoln pneumatic and Lucas Red and Tacky, except for the wheel bearing zerks and the water pump. With four A's in the family the air gun saves some time on the lube day production line.

Re: Alternatives to the spring-loaded LT connection at distributor?

Or screw it in until it's where you want it and then check with a Ohm meter to make sure 1) it's not shorted, and 2) the hot wire is connected.

Re: Comprehesive howto for brakes?

And I would probably do just that, if my car were fresh from the factory and hadn't been owned by 40 different people before I bought it and if it wasn't 90+ years old.

I have no idea what prior...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil in Crankcase

You are absolutely right. There is no proof and I doubt anyone here has the inclination or resources to finance a study on it. I don't use it in the engine, but I do add a little to the gas. I think...

Re: 160-C cost at the dealer?

So, the ones we see going for 10K now are about the same as when new.

Anything is possible, but in this case, it's not really practical.

Re: How Many Model A's Are There Now?

We have 65 members and over 100 cars. My guess is close to 125 cars is more accurate. But that's just club members. Lots who have cars are not in the club.

Re: Cleaning parts

I use diesel in a sealable tub and my wife's toothbrush while she's out shopping. I have to rinse it out really well before I put it back.

Re: New Manufactured Zenith Carburators

Re: My Distributor Cam Screw is Stuck

Ruth, probably doesn't need to be timed. My caution is that if you have something that you can't fix easily (and you should be able to) better fix it in the shop because it'll break on the road....

Re: My Distributor Cam Screw is Stuck

Regardless of the current condition of the timing, at some point down the road, and probably on the side of the road, that cam screw will need to be loosened. Much better to do it in your shop than...
