Re: Sound deadening Q ?

Bob, in #8, you have a modified plastic container as a work tray. Clever.
As a 20 year waterproofer, I have thought the aluminum backed deadener might trap moisture next to the body metal over time....

Tom Endy discusses cleaning the zenith.
You will find his write up on the Santa Anita A's Webb site.
The wear is excessive in my opinion. 19/64 is .29678".

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

Filming my back, and stumbling for a word are my current issues. And a work area out of the brisk weather. It's still relatively fun to do. I look past the negative comments.

Re: Rebuilding the shift tower

Got several more segments/parts to issue including a lever and jig I made up.
The spring deserves respect!
I read endy's procedure before I took apart the 5-6 towers.
I have to get my hands dirty...

Re: Windshield Rattles

One of the 4 windshields I reworked was plate glass, another was delaminated.
Safety glass, 1/4 inch thick was what I used, not tempered glass.

Re: 2 Tooth Steering Column

Don't believe you need to remove the bushing.
Did your column have the rods in place when you started disassembly?
Tricky part is placing the rods in the base of the column.
Bushing knocks out...
