That might explain the sticking, if someone used a worn reamer on the guides? Also, check the valve st...

Why is there a washer under the nut on the shut off valve? The nut needs to squeeze the leather seal in order to seal. Once working properly, you do not need another valve at the carburetor. This valve will do the job just fine.

There is a leather seal that goes around the shaft and then the brass fitting compresses it to make it seal. The EZ Turn lube is impervious to gasoline and lubes the brass valve and the leather seal. I used liquid Teflon to seal the pipe threads at the tank.

Re: Jacking help removing rear axle

I just did the rear end in my 26 roadster. I placed the jack stands as far back as I could to clear the radius arms. It worked fine.

Re: UPDATE on 13/32x16 Taps

I was told that the 8' aeromotor wind mill hub is 13/32x 16 threads. They sell the tap for $71. So, Dan's price is a good deal.

Re: Kelsey split rims

Yes, just a slip fit and once mounted the steel fellow prevents them from coming out. That and probably the pressure from 32 PSI of air pressure in the tubes.

I use a high efficiency natural gas forced air furnace.

Re: My new repro u-joint is poorly riveted. Is it salvageable?

I mounted it in a vice and used a 3/4" drive ratchet to apply torque to it. I applied enough torque to feel it twist a little, but it springs right back. I do not see any signs of looseness.

Re: My new repro u-joint is poorly riveted. Is it salvageable?

I did deburr the rough edges at the bottom of the cups with a Dremel. That did increase the distance of travel, as it was making contact there. I will take your suggestion. Prior to installation, I willl work it in a vice and put some torque to it. I also doubt that it will loosen up.

I have one exactly like the one that Mark has. I don't think anything is loose. I think they are from a different supplier then the one Dan has. Dan's looks to be of better quality. What size feeler gage are you using?

Re: 26 Brake Cam Question

I would agree other than the diameter of the shaft is larger at the lever end. The shaft appears to be only 7/16" in diameter at the cam end. Subtract the 3/16" pin diameter and your left with 1/4". Divide that by 2 and you have only 1/8" of material left on each side to hold the forces that are app...

Re: Question about new tool??

Wouldn't that make the correct pipe tap a 1/8" x 27 NPS tap and not a NPT tap? NPT is tapered while NPS is straight threads. NPS taps are readily available.

I would be interested in a 13/32" X 16 tap also.
