Re: Question re front spring perches

On many wishbones I examined before choosing the one I have for replacement, I saw the imprint of a hex nut from wear on the bottom of each arm where the perch nut rides. From prior experience I discovered one way to smooth out the contact with the cone shaped nut is to make a copper washer to be pl...

Re: Frames F/S

Hey Phil, I may be needing a good 26-27 frame . Wayne Sheldon said you had a real good one at one time. Hope things are going well with you. After the accident I was sorry I didn't buy that good front axel you had at Auburn last year!! I'd like to come up for a visit once this virus thing subsides. ...

Re: Rear hub evaluation

I have encountered bent front hubs. George Garrigan who rewoods T wheels in Sonora CA routinely turns the flanges to true them up. Although the rear hubs are sturdier than the fronts, I'd check them for flange run out. A light trying cut wont hurt a thing.

Re: Question re front spring perches

Mark you raise some interesting points. I didn't know the wishbones on 21-25 cars were different than the 26-27. I do see the earlier perches are longer above the axle than the 26-27 by about 1/4". That was a surprise to me. I thought they were all the same. The replacement pieces I am using on my c...

Re: Question re front spring perches

Thanks for the input fellas. Wayne, what do you think of the idea of knurling the shafts for a snug fit. If the nuts that hold the wishbone to the perches are tight, do you foresee a problem?

Question re front spring perches

I find the front spring perches are a bit loose when inserted in the axle. perhaps .006" Both the axle and perches are replacements due to the accident I suffered a couple weeks ago. They have been sandblasted. What if anything do people do to create a tight fit? Knurl, shim, forget about it?

I'm surprised no no has suggested using a small round punch ground to a narrow point on one side. Get it started on one edge of the bushing next to the backing plate. Use a small hammer and tap it down repeatedly so the point of the puch cuts a groove in the bushing . Keep tapping until the bushing ...

Re: Wishbone reconect problem.

IMHO the easiest way to align the wishbone ball is to loosen the nuts that clamp the front spring to the frame channel. With the spring loose it is easy to move the axle a small amount to where the ball aligns with the socket.
