Re: Columbia not engaging

If you take the speedometer gear changer apart be very careful to reassemble exactly as it came apart. The shaft with the double gear set can be turned around, by mistake, and will effect gear ratio...

Re: Transmission pops out of second

I suggest taking it apart and trying the other syncro blocker ring on 2nd gear to see if it also goes on too far.

Re: Columbia not engaging

There is a rod from the rear of the switch handle to the rear of the speedometer on the gear changer to correct speedometer reading when in overdrive. If you disconnect the rod from the back of the...

Re: My Speedometer stop working

Hard to find a place to turn rear brake drums! Most shops with a drum lathe do not have a proper arbor to mount the rear drum.

Re: 1939 toe in

Adjust the Tie Rod for the proper toe adjustment. One side of the Tie rod is LH thread the other end is RH thread so turning the rod one way will shorten the assembled rod length and turning the...

Re: 32 Ford Leaking Water Pump

Yes either the seal is bad letting water into the grease chamber or as mentioned above too much grease can crack the pump casting, which could be the problem also. Fords Zerk type fittings on the...

Re: 39 Tranny troubles

Sounds like the transmission may be backing out of 3rd gear. When it does this have you tried just shifting back into 3rd instead of going into neutral first. Do inspect the 3rd gear blocker ring...

Re: Transmission goes 'boing'
