Back together with new Scandinavia linings. (more anon)**
If I cinch up the low speed band so the pedal won't "bottom out" on the floor-boards, car creeps - tested this by hand-cranking. I have backed off to where she doesn't offer to creep. Will the new linings shortly find center and seat in so that a proper adjustment can be made ? I don't think there's excessive wear in the pedal cams, as low was positive with the old (wood) linings which after approx. 15k mi. were plenty worn-out. They did give yeoman service !
**disclaimer - the car came to me with wood linings, and yes, I know most everyone hates the new Scandis, doubtless kevlar or wood is a better choice, try as I would I just couldn't seem to land any NOS bands with asbestos. I wanted to pick up where I left off in my Model T experience 50 years ago with what I'm familiar with, and, well, this just proves that while some folks have common sense, and others of us have to pee on the electric fence for ourselves !
Rich: according to your profile you are in Idaho, what is the temp like up there does the car still creep if you warm it up? I have heard the new scandinavia linings take a little driving before they behave like they should.
As l am sure you are aware,Rich,band ajustment is a juggling act.
Give it a little more time to seat in.l,personally,like a tiny bit of low gear creep,when first installed.That soon goes away.l then think low engages smoother,once worn in.
Wood bands probably would work well, even with worn cams, because the wood is so incompressible. With only very little movement, a wood band will go from tight to free. On the other hand, Scandinavia linings have lots more "squish" in them, requiring far more band actuation to both grab fully and to release fully. Worn cams will really show up under those conditions. I use wood bands in my Model N because Kevlar, which is also compressible until well seated, would either slip or drag. The limited travel of the N bands agree well with wood.
