Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

Most repair sleeves are cast iron and either 3/32 thin wall or standard 1/8" wall.

Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

The thin wall cast iron sleeve was 3/32" =.093 The Ford steel sleeve was .040". Those look to be the thin wall cast iron sleeves. Are the bores in good enough shape to use?

Re: 39 pedals in a 36 frame

One hole lines up and you have to drill the other three holes. I clamped the pedal assembly in place and installed the toe plate/floorboard to check the position of the pedal to the slots in the toe...

Re: Rear Wheel Bearing 1936

Dave, That hardened sleeve is for the late hub only, the early hub takes a larger bearing.

Re: Rear Wheel Bearing 1936

Don, On the later hubs with the hardened sleeve there is a washer/spacer which goes in before the sleeve is pressed in. I have these on my 36 and I have 4 spares that have the same setup. I noticed...

Re: Rear Wheel Bearing 1936

I think what you're calling a flange is the outer bearing race that is pressed into the hub. The washer/spacer is there to locate the bearing and protect the hub from wear. The washer/spacer was...

Re: Temp sensor port thread chaser

Brian says the port thread is parallel, You say the port thread is tapered and then you say Brian is correct. How can that be?
I agree that the port is 3/8 NPT threads.

Re: McCulloch VS-57 Supercharger

I've got one for a 54 olds, It has the same tensioner setup. You want the distance from pin to pin on the spring mount correct?

Re: Solenoid disengages gear prematurely

So what kicks the bendix out is the engine turning faster than the bendix gear, so on 12 volts the engine would have to turn a lot faster to kick the bendix out . The point I'm making is that 12...

Re: Solenoid disengages gear prematurely

12 volts is not going to to disengage the starter drive while cranking. I agree it is not a good idea and it is hard on the starter drive and ring gear. His problem was the gear kicking out early...

When grinding cast steel gives orange sparks, cast iron gives red sparks. My guess would be cast steel. Most of Henry's brackets were steel forgings or castings.
