Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: Holes for pin in slow speed notch

Are the holes in the slow speed notch that the pin (rivet) goes through supposed to be different sizes? Mine has a smaller hole on one side that the pin will not go through. Am I supposed to drill it out larger or what?

The pin is supposed to be tapered. It is inserted into the larger end, through the shaft (which is also tapered), and into the small end. Tapped in with a hammer, it is not going to fall out. When removed, the pin-driver must be started at the small end.

James Bell:

Make sure you have a SUPPORT under the slow speed notch or you will stand a good chance of putting a bend in the shaft.

Yes you have to drill the new ones. They are made that way. Guarantees alignment.

I have a new shaft and the hole in it is not tapered. So, who is right, Jack or James Mahaffey?

I have never seen a tapered one.

AGH! You are correct, sirs. Wrong Ford. I was thinking of the pedal-shaft on the Model A, which is held onto the bell housing with a tapered pin.

So sorry.

Jim
