Re: Torque tube seal-need a quick fix

Re: Torque tube seal-need a quick fix

Bruce's seal with home made vent. Also, photo of how rear gear oil will dissolve rubber on encased center bearing rendering it useless along with photo of NOS center bearing.

Re: Engine opinion

If the engine is complete it should have crankshaft seal, correct? My 8BA did. No leaks.

Re: Engine opinion

Definitely store them assembled. That way you don't lose any parts and the nuts, bolts and screws. Also makes it easier to find the parts. I recall once when I stored a flatty I filled it...

Re: External oil filter - question on oil lines

No, I used the 1/4 inch lines to route the oil lines the same as the stock set up using the stock oil filter mounted on the stock 8BA block. I recall now that I did use 1/4 inch brake line, not fuel...

Re: External oil filter - question on oil lines

Burt, buy some 1/4 dia. steel fuel line and make your own using a hand bender. That what I did when I remounted my 8BA filter. I made little hollow metal couplers out of drilled bolt shanks and...

Re: "help"

Mike, It might be worthwhile to recheck the ring end gap, It's a pain to take it apart again but, may save you in the long run. It's too tight for a reason.

Mr. Seery: Do you know if the early 12 V sending units look the same as the 6V or was the design entirely different?

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

Just one more thought. Turning the star wheel clockwise moves fuel gauge needle towards Full.

Star wheel is for fine tuning the gauge NOT...

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

Does anyone know how to decipher the color code on the carbon resistors and if modern resistors could be used in their place? Electronics is not my thing.

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

Sal, there's a good chance you can repair it yourself. Have you removed the unit from the tank? One common failure is that the brass float develops hairline cracks and fills with gas, inhibiting...

Use a high quality etching primer and then then paint it.
