Re: Lincoln brakes

Thanks for the pictures, That's the way mine is. If I could heat and bend it down about 10 degrees it would have a pretty straight pull.

Thanks for the help, Bill

Re: Lost in space....

I've got about a half dozen Wittes from 2 hp to 6 hp and 1 diesel, about 66 flywheel engines total. Another bad habit.

Re: Brake shoe repair

If it's for your own use I would use it, It's on the anchor end probably won't get heavy contact.

Some of the old linings get brittle and shrink just enough to misalign the holes.

Re: Grease fitting size for 1937 ford spindles

Me too, The hex/wrench size on a 1/4-28 is 5/16 not much larger than the ball .On an 1/8" pipe the wrench size is 7/16 much larger than the ball.

Re: Grease fitting size for 1937 ford spindles

I,m going to have to disagree with you 1/4-28 is .250 in diameter, 1/8 pipe is close to .400 in diameter. They are nowhere close.
1/8 pipe and 3/8-24 are the one that are close.
I just...
