Re: emergency brake backing plate removal

I'm not talking about the wedge. That's something else. I mean the housing for the toggle lever that activates the brake shoe and to which the rod is attached on the outside of the backing plate.

Re: emergency brake backing plate removal

Is the emergency brake toggle lever completely out? Originally, there were no zerk fittings on the lever housing and that sucker is often corroded fast.

Re: Distributor question

Are these oil-lite bushings the same as graphite bushings? Or just as good? Or just as bad?

Re: throttle control

Maybe get one of those "collars" to adjust the length of the rod between the ball on the throttle control and the ball on the carb? I'm not sure how bendable those control arms are, and you...

Re: 1930 Roadster on ebay. Thoughts please.

That seems a little high, but it's not outrageous. Try to put one together for that price. You wouldn't even get a good start.

Re: Carb identify

The fitting from the gas line to the carburetor fuel inlet is a little different from either Zenith or Tillotson.

Re: wet floor 30 A rumble seat area

There's a gutter there but no seal (at least not on mine). Just take it easy with the hose

Re: Marvel Schebler carb pouring gas

I had that happen with a MS carb several years ago, and could never figure out what was wrong or get it to stop. I eventually just took it off, put it on a shelf, and installed a Tillotson on my...

Re: Hudson Wagon Works Doors

How many of our younger folks would even know what "include SASE" in an ad even meant?

Re: blown fuse problem

Could be lots of things, but if your wiriing is in a metal conduit make sure the conduit has not moved and is making contact inside the terminal box with the driver's side post.

Re: Differential oil leaking on on brake shoes

This is a very big and complex job. As Franklin suggests, get a shop manual. First thing, get a safe and reliable spring spreader for the rear spring. Removing and replacing the rear axle is, IMO,...

Re: Nice

I'd use a double gasket before installing the water pump!

Re: Need help lowering roadster top please

Just be careful not to "pinch" any of the top material in the irons as they unfold. As Hawk says, go slow.

Re: Wheel Puller

As to your question, "Am I likely to need a wheel puller?" I would say, yes. Even if the hub is not stuck, you're not likely to just pull it off by hand. If it is stuck, you will wish you had the...

Re: Rear-end oil fill

Tom's way is the easiest. But if your heavy differential (or trans) oil didn't come in a squeezable bottle, you can buy one at Menard's, Home Depot, etc. Fill the bottle with a funnel and you're in...

Re: Spring Perch Troubles

If the nuts are that tight, I can't imagine how tight the perches must be in the axle. I've had to drill them out before, and that of course ruins them.

Re: Battery connector corroding

There are several different kinds of battery post spray/protectant on the market. Might try one. Can't hurt, might help.

Some people (like me) drill and tap the emergency brake shaft housing for a zerk fitting.

Re: How much paint?

Will depend a little bit on type of sprayer. I believe HVLP guns use less paint.
