Re: A few questions on a 8BA

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

I think Tubman is right, my 1 ton chain hoist is wore out. I bought it off of FB market place used. Is very handy to have around, but with a flathead & transmission it just spins around like a...

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

I wanted to add that the motor is incredibly filthy from sitting. It needs hot tanked badly.

Well what I have found out so far, putting the pressure plate back together went fine.
