Re: Pinion assembly installation

Larry,
Thanks for the information. I was not going to use this housing. I have a 31 rear end I was going to put the overdrive in. I appreciate the information, I didn’t know that.

Re: Pinion assembly installation

I will need to press this pinion assembly back into the banjo.
Does anyone have an old torque tube I could buy the flange off of?

Re: Pinion assembly installation

Tom,
I guess I got that one wrong. The overdrive is positioned 4.5” towards the front of the car so the stub shaft is longer.
I still like the idea of a torque tube flange to do the job. So far it...

Re: Pinion assembly installation

Stub shaft won’t be very long as this is in a Victoria and will be very close to the rear end.
I think I will have to use all threads and nuts to draw the pinion in because the threads are very...

Does anyone have an old torque tube flange I could purchase to press in a pinion assembly? Picture below I borrowed from Tom Endy.

Re: rich little

Is Rich Little still around? I used to love watching him do impersonations as a kid.
Especially Archie and Edith Bunker.

Re: Transmission Shift Fork Pins

Russ,
I did the same thing.
I took a dermal tool and made a groove on the opposite side of the split in the pin for the safety wire to lie in.

Victoria Rear Seat Back

On a 31 Victoria rear seat, is it supposed to hinge forward to reveal a small storage space? If so, are there supposed to be cutouts in the sides of the seat back so it will clear the armrests?

Re: Horn Problem

I have adjusted the horn and lubricated it.
I have an alternator that is in a generator case. You can't tell it is an alternator.
I may put it on and try it.

Horn Problem

My horn blows just fine with car running or off. When I turn the lights on or hit the brake it just growls. Do I have a problem with my generator?
