Re: Teflon Tie Rod Ball Seats

I first sanded my new balls with 220 grit sandpaper and then 500 grit. After that I polished them on my buffer with emery. They came out looking like chrome. My teflon seats should last for ever.

Re: Polarity for horn

Tom is correct. Regardless of polarity wiring, the armature will always spin in the same direction.

Re: EZ Steer vs. F100 Steering Modification

Randy is excellent to talk to. I have his f100 and although the steering is a little easier than the stock box, I find that it has more free play. Maybe mine needs a little tightening adjusting.

Re: Rear Axle Keys

If the taper is what only holds the grip then why is there a key in there anyway? No reason for hub to axle location orientation.

Re: John Deere corn head grease

The corn head grease should be used in the universal joint housing for the u-joint. Not in the rear end, use 600wt. What do trains have to do with Model A's?

Re: Follow up on removing pour in gas tank liner

I've had luck removing tank sealers with MEK or paint remover. I'm not sure if acetone is strong enough.

Re: Re-thinking shortened pitman arm

I think I remember reading that if the front spring is sagging a lot, it will throw off the castor and make for hard steering. Is there any truth with this?

Re: F150 tranny with overdrive

Speedo won't need calibration with the F150 overdrive because the speedometer is driven off the drive shaft. A change in rear end ratio would require a calibration change.
