1924 Touring, car has wide brake drum. Removed/rebuilt rear end. While rear end was out removed hogshead for band replacement. Reinstalled rear end/drive shaft. Replaced trans bands. Trying to install hogshead having clearance issue.
Should have reinstalled hogshead before rear end due to ears on hogshead? Obviously I have a mix of parts due to large brake drum. Any suggestions?
Back off the two bolts at the bottom of the ball cap and allow it and 4th to tip or move back a little.
"ears on hogshead"
Are you saying that it's an '26-'27 hogshead?
Does it have a 3 dip or 4 dip pan?
If it came apart it should go back together.
Try Mark's suggestion.
