Finished the hogshead for the touring.

I have just the second working speedometer I have ever had on a model T. The Corbin unit on my new roadster works beautifully. The impetus to get the set up installed and working was the recent purchase of an almost new swivel joint. I have even had it nickel plated as original.

I am awaiting parts so I thought I would paint the manifolds and carb. Used hi temp ceramic, was told to cure in oven. I used BBQ grill to avoid divorce or getting maimed. Pictures speak for themselves. Ugh. Going to clean and start over. Think I'll just let the engine heat cure themBefore

Steve,
What is insulating varnish for? What are you insulating?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Donnie Brown North Central Arkansas on Friday, December 02, 2016 - 07:11 pm:

John, It is Glyptal or something similar. Most pro engine rebuilders use it on the inside of the blocks to aid in oil circulation and cleanliness. The insulating varnish Steve is using may be the same or similar to Glyptal. Insulating varnish is used on the magneto spools and also starter and generator windings. Here is a link to Eastwood Supply and their Glyptol

Neither of us had ever driven a T before. Sturggled with coils, plugs and valves over the holiday and finally got it running well enough to stretch her legs.

Glyptal is a brand name, like Kleenex or Band-Aid. It's very expensive. The generic product name is red insulating varnish (or enamel), and the Sprayon version is not very expensive. Of course, like oil, the more expensive one is much better.

My second but first time I got it in high gear . I have had the car for 35 years stored in shop buried with junk. Have 3 year old grandson so decided now is the time to bring it to life. Got it started in July for the first time but would not move. New bands and clutch adjustments cured that now on to the brakes and wiring to lights. Hope to have it road worthy by summer. I will tinker during cold weather. A lot of learning curve . Lots of body work but it will be back !!

Three club members all gave starters during the latter part of November and one decided that while I was doing one he may as well give me six. Two were in terrible shape, one with no guts and the other solid with rust. I also had two spares from Chickasha that needed work.



The two on the left have brand new coils and are six volt. The others are all wired for twelve volts and use recovered old stator coils. It has taken two weeks but it keeps me out of trouble...

I think, I'm close to have Sambuca, my 1917 Canopy Express Delivery back on the road. I could not get the Ruckstell to shift. Asked Ken LeBlanc, if I could bring it down Thursday night to the shop and use the parts cleaner on it. A group of use meet at Merrimack Valley Tire each week to work on our Ts and just have fun. On Friday I took it over to Dick Welch's and he fixed it right away.

The doodlebug has been hard starting, I think the gasket is burnt out on the last exhaust port and may be burnt to the intake causing a slight leak. I can only get it to fire on some either sprayed in a port in the intake, so I think a gasket replacement is in order.

Once I did get it started today, I installed the tire chains and hooked the plow up, weather guy seems to think we might get some snow.

Today a friend and I attended the Pomona CA swap meet. Haven't attended in ten years or so but decided to go because I haven't seen my friend for awhile.

On the last row of vendors I was browsing a table full high performance Chevy parts and saw a Holley G carb sitting next to other parts. It was in excellent condition asked the guy how much and $20 later it was mine. It's a brass model.

Got it home and it looks like it's never been used, it's in great condition. Just needs a new float and gaskets.

Not going to make it north for the party, too cold, too much snow and got invited to help play for a Western Swing dance to raise money for the needy kids and other folks in Livingston Friday night, thought I should go help.

That block just looks so weird with the 5 main crank in it.

Zoom Zoom!!

I got the Rayfield UF done, run and on the way, now on a Stromberg OX-3 going to California. Spent most of the day at the Dr. back in the shop tonight -- right after a little nap in the pickup. Just got home so it is warm in the pickup, colder than all get out outside, about 4 above and getting colder right now.

FINALLY got my gas re-route and plumbing up to code done and got the gas turned back on Monday AM just before I went to the Dr for the night and day, everything toasty warm again. Back to the shop to pay the bill.

I don't know what program Steve uses, but when I want to add text or artwork to a photo, I import the photo into Microsoft Powerpoint. I make my mods, group everything into a single object, then right click on the object and save it as a picture (.jpg file) with a different name so that I don't mess up the original. :-)


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mike Kossor - Kenilworth, NJ on Friday, December 09, 2016 - 09:59 am:

Thank you Mark and Steve,for showing the correct perch orientation. I ordered the front and rear axle book for complete details.

One suggestion I received was to disconnect the wishbone and spindles from the front axle and just reverse the front axle by 180 degrees with perches, shackles and spring intact. May be easier than reversing the perches. Thanks for the help.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mark Strange - Hillsboro, MO on Friday, December 09, 2016 - 10:05 am:

If you do that, you may have to also swap spindles side-to-side. You want the threads on the spindles set up so that normal, forward rotation of the front wheels is trying to "unscrew", or loosen, the outer front wheel bearing.

This means you want RH threads on the driver's side and LH threads on the passenger side. :-)


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve Jelf, Parkerfield KS on Friday, December 09, 2016 - 11:21 am:

To add text or drawing on photos I use Gimp. It's not wonderfully user-friendly, but it's free. Maybe it would be easier if I used it more often. Of course, make a copy and alter that. You want to keep the original photo in case you need it later. To change your font, click Formatting at the top of this page.

Yes, turning the axle around is most likely much easier than switching the perches. Getting them out of the axle is often a major headache. And yes, you have to leave the spindles where they are.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erik Johnson on Friday, December 09, 2016 - 11:32 am:

Based on my own observations, the right and left spindle bushings wear at different rates. The wear is typically greater on the passenger side, most likely because of the crown in the road. Similarly, the yokes at the ends of the axle wear wear faster on the passenger side.

If you turn the axle around instead of swapping the perches, you may find that that the spindles don't fit as well as they did prior to turning the axle around.

Just something to consider.

Back to "what did you do today?":

It was 17 degrees F in Hillsboro, MO this morning, so I put the winter front on Betsy before my morning drive.

The winter front is just a piece of cardboard that I cut to shape and sprayed black. The edges are crushed flat so that it will slip between the radiator shell and the fins. :-)

I have to add something about reversing the axle, that can of course be done but speaking of the perches you can not always go by the centering boss to go to the back, I got into doing this twice because my perches did not have that boss, they must have been changed out long ago, I add also I bought both perches new for the second time I had to do this, it is the angle of the pin that goes through the axle NOT the angle of the shackle boss that sets the correct caster in case you find the boss is not there!

Mark,
I'm curious as to your comment of right hand thread on drivers side and left hand on passenger side. Somehow I was thinking the opposite. Would the correct way you are suggesting be to prevent a tightening effect that would cause bearing failure?
I'm not far enough along on my T to have looked at this yet. The last left hand threads I worked on were on Dodge cars of the 60's. I thought they were on the driver side. But... I don't trust my memory!
Thanks

Mopars had LH lug nuts on the driver's side through 1970. An obscure engineering study had found that loose RH thread lugnuts on the driver's side (loose being defined as less than 20 foot-pounds) could unscrew themselves while driving.

Apparently, Chrysler changed its mind and decided to follow the rest of the industry with all RH thread lugnuts in 1971.

I finally finished rebuilding the rear end for the 27 touring car. It is for our main "tour car" so I basically replaced everything. Then I made a little tag that hangs on one pinion spool bolt and wires to another bolt. That should remind me when I rebuilt it. Or let the next owner at least know the babbit washers have been changed to brass washers. Before the next time I rebuild a rear end I want to get a small set of stamps, so I can also list all the parts replaced, not just the brass washers. All that's left to do is get a somewhat warm day and give it a quick shot of paint. If anyone notices that it is not 12/11/16 yet. That is the date I chose as the date I would be finished. :-) :-) got it done a little early :-) Now that the rear end is out of the way, I can finally get started finishing the speedster project ...........

With the tag on top of the spool, and after I paint everything, including the tag. It should be almost invisible, unless looking closely. My tags are stainless, but brass or aluminum should make a good permanent tag.

Well, Derrick Pang is turning into quite the T'r. Got a call from him when was having a little trouble tonight while he and his girl were out driving. Car started to act sluggish, no effect with spark control. So with the engine still running, hops out, pops the hood and sees sparks flying of the timer. The previous weekend he took his car to the monthly T Garage put on by members of the LongBeach T Club. They checked and installed a new(rebuilt) generator. Seems some one didn't tighten up the gen. bolts enough . Bolt backed out and the timer hold down strap dropped and the timer came out a little bit. Our young hero Derrick (D'Artagnan) whips out the wrench and fixes the problem on the road !!! He's getting it !!! Martynn Vowell and I had been helping him when he first got the car. It's times like this that make a fellar damn proud of that youngin' Well done young sir ! Well done.

Speaking of ,right and left hand threads, I'll bet a lot of guys here have had the experience of starting the car (any car) on jack stands with the lug nuts, or axle nuts on your T, just loosely on and found them all over the floor when you started it, there is something to the left hand thread idea.

Got my new Stromberg OF the other day. It was in really good shape. I tore it down and all the passages were clean no junk in anything. Even the float valve seals tight! I have ordered a new Viton tip valve and seat from Stan. Can't wait to get it on my roadster. PK
