Re: Rear hub removal tool

IMHO, the knock off tool may work on a hub that isn't on too tight, but it might lead to damaging the threaded end of the axle if you pound too much. I've used the half round pullers, and they're...

Re: New Front Axle

If the whole axle is moving, take a look at the ball at the end of the wishbone where it attaches to the bell housing. I'd bet it worn way way out.

Re: Badly worn Valve guides

I do not believe that the T engine has replaceable valve guides. Venders sell valves with oversized shafts and reamers to make them fit the worn guides.

Re: water in the oil

In addition to torquing the head nuts, make sure you follow the correct tightening sequence. I did a carbon job on my Model T, new gasket, and followed what I thought was the proper sequence, only...

Re: Engine Rebuilder Needed

Yikes! I once helped a guy to remove and replace his engine where the old engine was missing a chunk of the block right where your hole punched through. Only the hole had been fiber glassed over...

Re: 2 cent on Brake drums

Just curious about the process involved in re-manufacturing drums. I can't imagine that they could be sleeved because either the old drum would have to be turned down so much that it loses its...

Re: Engine Rebuilder Needed

Bob, I know you like to go fast, which is why you use B engines. Have you considered Terry Burtz new casting? It's a 5 main bearing job with inserts and full pressure. Fully balanced crank. 5...

Re: gas tank relocation

If you think about it, it really is the safest place for the tank to be in the event of an accident. If it were out back, a rear-ender would crush it. It's above any side impact with a modern car. ...

Re: Coil bad?

You should have the same voltage at either low tension post of the coil. Your test with the light is telling. I suspect that the primary winding is grounding out inside the coil. Check if you get...

Re: Spindle /king pin spacer.

There needs to be a little space there even after the felt and cup are inserted. All the weight should be born by bearing at the top of the spindle, and the steering knuckle needs the clearance at...

Re: Grinding When Cold

It's perfectly normal for the gears to grind when the transmission oil is cold and thick if you do not double clutch between shifts. After a few miles of driving, when the tranny warms up, I bet it...

Re: Starting Issue - Need Ideas!

You don't mention anything about the condition of the engine. Was it just rebuilt? Was it run with low or no oil recently? Did it severely overheat recently?

Re: attack of electrical gremlins

Re: Model A dies with throttle open

It runs on the idle system but dies on the transition to high speed. I'm thinking the cap or main jets are clogged. Take apart carb and clean the jets and passages.

Re: Starter Problem - caught on fire

Those are the signs of a short circuit to ground. Perhaps the fiber insulator inside the switch was missing or failed and the copper strip made contact with the body of the switch? Or the fiber...

The car show was very well attended on the Sunday that I was there, so I don't think there's any "new normal" reluctance for people to get out and mingle. In fact, at every car show I've been at...
