I did not post for a long time. My project continue. My front axle is ready (not painted, I wanted to build the car before to paint all the parts). My wood fro the steering wheel is finished. My chassis is not anymore bent... I am working on my rear axle. I don't know if there are inner sleeves for the bearings or if it is an older reparation.
I can't send pictures of my steering wheel because there are too heavy. I will see what can I do tomorrow.
I put under the links of the older post for people who don't remember me :
Thanks for the photos. Its always good to see your project.
The no rivet rear axle housings with their babbit bearings were a poor design and prone to failure. It looks like yours was close to failing. That can be quite catastrophic, as Jem from the UK knows from experience.
I don't have any experience with the no rivet housings, but perhaps there is a modification to make them more reliable. Can somebody who has rebuilt one give some advice?
It looks as if someone has tried to build up the worn areas of your axles with weld. That's not a good idea. Looks like you'll need to make some new axle shafts.
I tried to make pictures of my last jobs :
wood of the steering wheel
measurements for the engine
Nice work on the steering wheel! And a fantastic project. I very much remember your earlier posts. Thank you for the updates. I hope to see more.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
