A friend of mine noticed this nasty galling on one of my inner cones when he was teaching me how to pack my ball-bearings. Got a perfect, NOS replacement part from Royce Peterson (even had a Ford stamp on it) and I installed it today.
I thought it was a hand painted swamp scene with trees in the foreground and light reflecting on the water in the back.
John, that is called found art. It happens a lot with cutting and polishing rocks. That is a beautiful landscape there in a swampy area and even a wading flamingo, although it is not pink. But Mary says it is a snow covered meadow with for some reason palm trees. Must be global warming in Hawaii.
That looks better than the ones on my car. Just kidding!
I think you got your moneys worth out of the old one.
Hey John, I see it!!!
Its great---even the perspective with the nearer trees being proportionately larger. Frank, I live south of Interstate 10--what is snow?
I see three California brown Pelicans on a North coast inland lagoon. I guess it depends upon the area you are used to.
Bout time to change that one, Bob.
It's changed, Dennis. The new one fit so darn tight, I had to bang it on with a wooden drift and a big ol' hammer. Took a while. My neighbor saw me, walked up and asked, "Wutcha doin' there, Thor?"
" The new one fit so darn tight, I had to bang it on with a wooden drift and a big ol' hammer".
Good, that's the way they are supposed to fit.
I've never seen one so bad. Those races are getting a bit hard to find. I never used ball bearings until I redid the front end on my '13 roadster. I had a NOS set, and wanted to try them. Nothing rolls like a ball, and those bearings are way bigger than they need to be. So far so good.
