Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2008: Removing Transmission Bands - Hogshead on - RHD

I am looking for advice on how to remove bands from a '26 with the hog's head still in place. (They are non-detachable ears).
I believe it is possible with some jiggling - any advice on what to jiggle where?

(RHD engine, so procedure may be different to LHD I guess)

Cheers
Adrian

Adrian,

I thought every 26 - 27 had removable ears? Are you sure?

Either way it may be an easier job removing the hogshead.

If the bands really do have the non-detachable ends, the best way to get them out is to pull one end of the band out of the inspection hole and snip the end off. Throw both resulting pieces away and buy a set of the detachable end style.

That being said, I'm with Royce in thinking that the ends should be of the removeable style for a 26. Maybe someone used the old style on clutch and reverse but the wide brake band could only be 26-27 style and really should be of the removeable type. You do realize that there are at least two styles of removeable end? Maybe you're just not used to seeing the type of removeable end your car has?

Thanks guys,
Yes the wide brake band is detachable eared, but someone in the past has used old bands on low and reverse.
I will try and pull out and cut off the ear as I don't need to keep tyhem, and it may be the easiest way. Failing that I will have to pull the hogs head.
My truck does not have much room in the cab, so I am trying to avoid pulling the hogs head if at all possible as it will be a job of great dexterity :-)

Cheers
Adrian

Adrian,

I have done in car changes on both my 26 Tudor and 26 Touring. If you do not have detachable ends then cutting the band is indeed the best/only way to do this, Then replace with the proper bands. When I did my Touring it took about 2 hours to get them out, re-line and put them back in. They were detachable ear bands. I used one of those coiled up bands with the handle on it to attach and pull them in.

Hope this helps.
