Front Radius rod ball cap

Should I buy the APCO Adjustable Ball Cap for the Front Radius rod or is the original setup with shims, if needed just as good?

The same question applies to the Steering gear rod Ball Cap.

This is for my 1919 Touring.

Re: Oil drain petcock

I am referring to the petcocks to check oil level, sorry calling them oil drain caused confusion. I appreciate all the responses, I think I will use the Teflon tape.

I got mine from RV Anderson. it was cheaper to pay the core charge than to pay shipping to send a core to him. He had one all ready to go, so i didn't

Re: Problem Installing Transmission Cover

Steve,
How much for a set of the narrow original Ford bands with removable ears. If possible I would like a set that was relined, if not I still would be interested, if pricing is reasonable. Reply by e-mail to: wgoodheart@tds.net

John Kuehn Thanks for the info on the correct band length. Unfortunately I didn't measure the ones I had before installing. During the riveting process they seemed to me to be too long if anything. I didn't have any problem leaving the 3/16" overlap on each end. The lining I used came from Langs, I ...

I am reinstalling the same bands. I relined them the same way described by Norm. If the linings are too thick what can be done about it. Do I need to rip out the lining and get different lining material?

Re: Assembly of Fun Projects Coilbox kit

James, my kit does indeed have the circular counterbore, it's just that the counterbore is not quite large enough for the terminal screw head. I guess I can put it on the drill press and enlarge the counterbore so the screw head will fit.

I bought this kit about 3 years ago and am just getting around to installing. When trying to install the contact screw for the Battery and mag connection I realized that the contact screw heads were to big to fit in the recess on the back panel. The screws for the 8 other contacts work fine. I might...
