Yes , the key way is to the left. You’re one tooth off.

Re: Model A won't move in gear

If you didn’t flow test the jets, then all bets are off. Just drilling them doesn’t mean they flow correctly. Even ‘reaming” a jet with the same size drill can change the flow rate, sometimes, more...

Re: Model A won't move in gear

Sounds like you’re lean. The carb jets are probably gunked up.

Re: Need advice

You can buy the pilot bearing in two different ID’s, so you can machine the input down to the smaller ID size. Talk to your local bearing supply house.

Re: Front Axle Shims

I had bad wear in the axle as well, and I ended up replacing the axle. I’ve heard pro and cons on repairing the axle kink pin hole.

Re: Two tooth steering column

Cornhead 00 is a thixtropic, self leveling grease. I have it in my u joint, but I use steering grease from California restorations in my steering box. It is a self leveling grease as well. I don’t...

Re: Surface Rust in Coolant Passages.

I think if you run some flex cable thru the passages you can, you’ll have more than surface rust coming out.

Re: Looking for commiseration

Since our engines were reborn a week apart, I just thought I would let you know, at 40,000, I pulled a half shim on the mains, and a half on number one rod. The other three I just lightly sanded...

Re: Head Gasket

The best asbestos gasket works great. I’ve always used asbestos. First felpro and now best. I’ve never lost a gasket in over 40,000 miles. The last 15,000 or so was with a 5.5. I am .125”. You should...

Re: Engine overhaul issues...

If you used the old pistons, maybe one broke. It will be interesting to know what happened.

Re: Engine overhaul options/decision

You probably want to take it to your machine shop. They can accurately gauge the taper in the cylinder, and tell you what size pistons to get. I would not reuse the old pistons.

Re: stripped nut

I know you fixed it. A handy tool is the thread repair tap and die set. It cleans the threads without taking much metal off. After I bought a set, I wondered how I managed without it.

Re: Control arm positions

I think without being attached to their devices, they may over extend their reach a bit. On the two tooth, you can rotate a bit for final adjustments. Some rods are not the right length, which causes...

I have one the vendors sell. It seems to work fine, why do you think it’s junk.
