Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Hand crank bushing from Langs?

I ordered a bushing repair kit for the hand crank with a pin and two springs from Langs. Can anyone tell me what is the best way to remove the old and put in the new one. Also where does the smaller spring go?? Thanks
Matt

They drive into the pan to remove and out to install.Pan best be off the car.The spring goes on handle near bend.There should be a small hole for it to hook in.

Matthhew, it is not a good idea to drive the new bush in with a driver/hammer. Best to use a length of all thread and nuts and washers to pull it in. that way you will reduce the liklihood of damage.

hope this helps.

Thanks I have a large spring that goes on the handle but also have a small spring too. Don't know where the small spring goes

Matthew, I missed your reference to the small spring. On the cranks with the tapered cast iron sleeve there was a small spring which fits inside the handle and keeps the sleeve from rattling. It is not used on later cranks with the rolled on thin steel sleeve.
Hope this helps.

Without seeing it, I cannot say for certain. I think ONE series of hand-cranks (the '15ish to '20ish) used a spring inside the handle grip to reduce rattling. Most '20ish to '27 hand-cranks only use the one other spring to push the whole handle forward from the front of the pan. That anti-rattle spring is about 3/4 inch OD by almost 4 inches long.I have never had one completely apart. But I had one that the hand-grip was broken and I could see the spring inside it.
Good luck!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I have tried to pull the old crank bushing out of the pan with all thread - no go, got to have a really large dimension for the threads to last. I had to cut the old bushings lengthwise with a hack saw both times I've done the job. Then the new bushings got in place nice and easy with a new piece of all thread :-)

My experience was the same as Roger's. Not a bad job at all.
