Re: Main Bearing Shims, a question ???

You can cut the A rear main shim and use it in a T engine as well. It will be a little shorter than a T rear main shim as the A rear main is 3" long from thrust to thrust, but that won't hurt anything.

So. . . . here you go!! I don't recall him ever making any billets, but could be. Back then, Jess would...

Re: Exhaust Nut Wrench

On the exhaust nut wrench, you can get by with a big old fashioned monkey wrench. Not as good as the real thing, but . .. On the toilet nut, soak the nut with lacquer thinner. If the last guy used plumbers putty on the joint, that will loosen it up.

Re: Polishing Repro Fronty covers

You need to start with much coarser abrasive and work your way toward 600. I would start with a 120-180 grit flap wheel or a DA sander and work your way up to a sewn cloth wheel with imbedded abrasive. Or take it to a shop that specializes in metal polishing and have them do it.

Re: OT lathe question

You will find it difficult to get a good finish on most any steel part with carbide unless you can get the surface speed up around 300-400 feet/min. Consider changing the size of the motor pulley to increase your top speed. Those old leblonds are great machines just not made for carbide turning on s...

Re: > about Z heads

If you have a stripped head bolt hole in your block, use a helicoil to repair it. Using a solid type thread repair insert like an ez-lock removes too much material from the original area around the hole. Except for a few head bolt holes, there is only a cast boss around each hole under the deck and ...

Re: Cracked hub repair

From above: " bearings are never 'tight'. The cups need to be a firm slide fit". Take it for what it's worth, but bearing cups in wheel hubs should never be a slide fit- light press fit yes, slide fit-no. Others may disagree, but this really is bad advice. I'm sure it would be ok for a wheel barrow ...

The threaded hole damage is very slight and using a nut on the inside of the hub during use keeps this from happening. Let me know if you are interested. dmcgearsatyahoodotcom

If you take a piece of 1/4" think acrylic big enough to cover the chamber and drill a 1/4" hole in it and glue the plate to the head with some grease you can a fill the chamber thru the hole and get a much more accurate measurement. You might be surprised at the difference in readings if you redo th...

Re: Clutch pressure ring

The cause of the worn out holes in the driven plate is that someone assembled the transmission with a small disk as the last one in the stack. This causes the pressure plate to act just like a large disc, except the 3 pins are now reacting the torque rather than 6 notches in the brake drum. Always c...

Some masking tape in a box wrench to hold the bolt makes it pretty easy to maneuver those blots into place and get the nut started.
