Re: drive shaft re-spline

Pete,

Were talking OLD quick change rears for 1928 - 1948 Fords.
Yes I know about those engines and the rear ends. I built the second or third Arias engine for a Midget back in the early 80's...

Re: drive shaft re-spline

I think you'd be better of with Midget crew chief that's local,..a "short track"

Re: I think I have found another controversial topic like 'Which Oil to Use'

Brent,

You know this is a can of worms ! First off is the valves...best first..

1. One piece valve with hard Chrome stem..

Re: I think I have found another controversial topic like 'Which Oil to Use'

Hello Brent,

Best guess,...it could be as high as 20 pounds..PLUS the spring doesn't
seat well ! Also,..I think that the one piece guides should have "liners"
installed,...that makes them bomb...

drive shaft re-spline

Who is the fellow in Paso Robles that re-splines drive shafts? He also does
the torque tubes.
Were doing a Quick Change and need a shorter shaft to fit..

Thank you,

Re: Rear Axle Taper - What It Does

John,
I agree with what you say...also, lapping the taper of the axle too the hub
is a big deal..makes for a good fit.

Re: Brake cross shaft socket springs

There needed! It keeps the whole mess tight.....so it's not sloppy.
I found some and had to shorten them to work, try Mc Master-Carr.

Re: Separating Control Rod from Control Arm

The quadrant, were the spark/gas rods ride on is a press fit. I used a piece of 2" sch 80
ABS and trimmed to fit the quadrant and tapped it DOWN. That relieves some of the pressure on the bushing....

Re: Modern one piece valve guide removal

The Bronze liners should have been done first..!
If you remove the guides,..you will need to do another valve job!

Re: odd rear brake drum 30 coupe

You DON'T HAVE AN "AR" brake system...!!
You have a normal brake system for a Model A. An "AR" brake drum will
NOT fit.........the brake drum you have will work.

Re: Roadster top questions? ASAP please!!

There IS a difference between a 1928 and a 1929...!
I got this information from Marco. I think it's the heights of the center OR back bows.

Re: touring cam improvements?

Pete and Jim,

Most people neglect the springs, they use the old ones. IF you put new springs with more
pressure...it will run great. The valves and lifters have to follow the cam..!
