And yes, I think that a...

Re: New pinion bearings

A bunch of years ago, I rebuilt a banjo rear with new bearings AND a new ring and pinion. I had a hell of a time getting the preload on the pinion bearings. The preload would be too loose, I'd...

Re: Misery loves company

Things are a bit easier if you realize that 7/16" and 11mm are virtually interchangeable as are 5/6" with 8mm, 5/8" with 16mm, 3/4" with 19mm and others. If you can't find the one you need, there may...

Re: Bolt sizes for pressure plate and bell housing

Not too bad on the pressure plate bolts due to the large diameter of the bolt circle but the flywheel bolts see a lot of shear! And, half of the torque being applied to the clutch disc is coming from...

Re: Bolt sizes for pressure plate and bell housing

For flywheel and / or pressure plate bolts, I'd recommend getting a set from ARP from any of the big speed parts vendors. They'll be the right size, proper shank diameter and "tougher than nails."

Re: 15" Rims

A while ago, I bought a set of 15" rims. Three of the four have "knubs" for the hub caps while the fourth has spring like fingers riveted on. Who made each of the two types?

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

This is the cut I made in the rumble seat riser to accept the raised rear crossmember. It's about 18" long. First effort was too far back so I had to make the hole wider. Let me add some dimensions...
