How do you work a Ruckstell?

A friend of mine bought a car with a Ruckstell. I assume it is set in high. The shifting lever and rod from lever to housing are not installed. We dont know if we should reinstall them. If we do, are there only 2 positions for the shifting lever? It lookslike it would go forward or back and not side...

Re: Greasing inside wheel bearings?

Susanne. It is easy after you have done it for the first time, but if you have never taken off an inner seal, you ask how it is done. I think that was the gist of the question. I know some people use a hook and take a chance of wrecking the seal. I think the brass punch works best and usually the se...

Re: full set wire wheel hubs -

I believe fronts go for about $200 and rears go for $150 depending on how good they are and if the races are in them.

Re: Need Some Advice

Mine turned out fine. The upholsterer added extra padding . You should have enough fabric on the sides. Classtigue hog ties the sides to the frame. Mine has a cording all around the edge so it is tied underneath. No hog ties.

Re: Greasing inside wheel bearings?

Matt Remove hub cap and outer bearing. Lay your wheel on a couple of 2 x 4's. Take a brass punch, angle it to the side and punch out rear bearing and seal with a couple hammer hits. Now you will not have to buy a new seal. Rinse bearing in kerosene to clean out old grease. Dry. Check bearing and rac...

22 Roadster seat question

Should a 22 Roadster have a metal plate between the gas tank and the seat? The car we just bought does not have one. Or should we just replace it with a piece of plywood?

The disc brakes are the size of mill wheels. The exhaust is unique. 12Volts with a dizzy, but coils are still there, just not connected. Check out that intake from the radiator. Went by Bob to get parts and he was closed. Must be getting ready for his big sale. pick2.jpg pick3.jpg pick4.jpg pick7.jpg

You can add more spacers. Is the top of the nut holding your springs together correctly inserted in the hole in the front crossmember? Is the nut from the rear spring in the crossmember correctly?
