Re: 13T - Rocky Mountain Brakes and While You're There

1913 and 1914 (I am told) rear differentials have the three spider gears with replaceable bronze bushings. I have only ever found one, and yes I did successfully find modern bronze bushings in a standard size that fit the gears and the three corner gear stub axle. I used the solid bronze style bushi...

Re: Using a single port Chevy head for poor man's ohv?

Jason, the answer is yes. The Chevrolet head has NO combustion chamber in it. It is just flat. Consequently the entire combustion chamber is within the thickness of the adapter plate. Most I have seen are about 1", but it would be worth doing some calculations on volume to determine compression rati...

Re: Tbay problem

On my search there are 4900+ results listed, and only 100 on one page show. There is no button at the bottom to change the number of listings showing per page. There is nothing showing any additional pages to go to. I have not been able to find any "work around".

Re: LETS TALK REAR ENDS

I am using mainly the axle gears, the spider, and the spider gears. The 3 legs of the spider need to be ground down shorter to fit in the Ruckstell carrier. New axles, a variety of new Ruckstell parts (thankyou Chaffins!), and reusing what I can from the old Ruckstells. Had to break down one rear as...

Re: LETS TALK REAR ENDS

Well, I have been busy tearing down rear ends to find good pieces for 2 Ruckstell rebuilds. Am now on 4 loose differentials with axles and 3 additional rear ends in their housings. The spider gear sets seem to be a bit of a problem. The spider gear shafts on many are galled on one of the 3 arms, and...

Re: Bushing hand brake cross shaft brackets?

I am not driving with them yet, but I have brazed up several (building up all around the shaft diameter), removed the levers from the end, chucked them up in a lathe and turned the brazing down to match the diameter I need. The brackets can be reamed if you have access to a large reamer of the right...

Re: Did any of the Ford 21 inch wood wheels come with loose lugs looks like maybe early Chevrolet, But?

OK. The same catalog shows 33 different rims for 20 different Chevrolet models between 1919 and 1929. All were made by Jaxon or Kelsey-Hayes. However, there is only one loose lug rim in 21 x 4.5. That is a Jaxon Type 30 rim. (click on photo and it will turn right way up)

The other way to come at this question is from the part supplier end. Attached copies are from the 1929 "Official Catalog of Genuine Wheels, Rims and Parts" published by the National Wheel and Rim Association. Rim photos in the following posting.

Re: Cast iron Warford - Complete

Actually, I have looked at many Warford 3-speeds with straight shift levers. I do not think they were manufactured with a dogleg, I think someone bent the levers that way to make them fit their installation, at least until the Model A Warfords. The shift tower looks much like the 2nd version of the ...

Re: Loading The Wagon for Chickasha

Hi Dan- When you get unloaded at Chickasha, would you please try to snap a few photos of the Warfords, Right side, left side, also showing the shifter? Those plus the serial number showing on each would be a welcome addition to our Warford data. Thx / Tim

Re: Rebuilding Cast Iron Warford

Hi Matt- Based on the Warfords I have looked over, the serial number on the case should match the serial number on the shift tower. This is true all the way back to the early aluminum case Warfords. I have looked at several with non-matching numbers on the shift tower, and concluded that the shift t...

With regards to the note that there were "more aluminum ones manufactured" I offer the following info. I have been trying to assemble a sequence on what production changes were made and when. I have verified aluminum Warford serial numbers as low as #1313, and as high as #75938. For iron Warford ser...

I currently show one private message waiting for me. I am logged in. I click on the "1" and get a new screen "General Error, module not accessible". Am not clear if this is the problem, or if it is due to the action Chris has taken to try and isolate the problem.
