Re: Leather main bearing

there's got to be an awful lot of bearing failures out there because of the number of times that story has gotten around! Me? I'd rather push the car by hand than pull the pan down! I did pull a...

Re: Head gasket?

I prefer a copper one, not sure why.The first two torqueings, I go to 60 lbs, subsequent torqueings are 55Lbs. Maybe it's wrong, but it seems to be working. I don't slop Permatex all over it either!...

Re: Model A's & Airplanes

As I recall the conversation, It was in spring and the weather was much warmer. Taking off earlier when the air was cooler and denser was the only solution. I remember something else odd about the...

Re: #! Vicki wood sill replacement

My 30 Town Sedan had sills that were a lamination of three pieces. This may or may not help or hinder you. You will probably need to pull the old wood straight out a 90 deg. to the frame to get it...

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

I don't know! The old Franklin zinc (NJ Zinc Co) mine was going great guns with 3 shifts. They must've needed that zinc and the Iron and manganese they pulled out of that hole! Battle ships...

Re: Extreme front end wobble

Re: Front wheel wobble

I think what you experienced was "Death Wobble". A loose wheel can definitely be one of the many causes of Death wobble. This is a starting point. Pull the wheel as others have said, clean out the...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

It ain't a mystery any longer! Chemists have broken it down a long time ago! But it started in 1923 when the ingredients were a mystery. I'm assuming it didn't change much since then.

Re: It ran when parked ..... at the bottom of the lake

If it's GAZ AA (and I think it is) it was probably found at the bottom of lake Ladoga. The city of St Petersburg (Leningrad) was under siege and was being supplied by trucks across the ice on the...

Re: Differential rebuild, lube bearings for preload adjustments?

I'm sure Tom Endy would echo this, since he's where I got it from! The shaft of the pinion should be put in a lathe or (If you have the setup) a drill press and polished with say, an 80grit wetordry...
