Re: A puzzling problem

Allan, you can try a light coat of white paint on the inside of the drum. Should be easier to see where it’s rubbed off after a short trip.
Maybe you can hear it by jacking up both wheels and have a helper turn the other side by hand ?
Good luck !

Re: Removing “Dummy bearings” from rear axle tubes with safety hubs

I got the sleeve out !! :D Before getting it in my press, I found the piece of flat steel I had was still hitting a rivet inside the tube.

Re: Removing “Dummy bearings” from rear axle tubes with safety hubs

So I tried the slide hammer on the dummy bearings today. Problem is that the dummy and the rivets are too close together for the bit to flip and catch only the dummy. Also the ID of the rivets inside the tube are about the same as the dummy bearing. So I can’t catch it easily from the inside. Any su...

Younger guys, 30-40?, they were mesmerized ! :D I highly doubt they have ever seen a T, wish I had taken a picture of their faces. I wish it wasn’t so crappy outside also, they would have been t...

I run a similar engine (less the cam), and 3:1 gears with a Ruckstel. I have no problems with my 24 touring pulling most hills around here in direct. I think (especially after the new engine),
You will be happy with the 3.25:1.
My opinion and about a dollar will get you a cup of coffee. :D

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

Yep, sure looks like a 2 piece (well, maybe 3 or 4 pieces) valve to me.
I would consider replacing ALL the valves if they have the holes in the top like that one.

Re: Spark plug recommendations?

I was chasing a drivability issue this summer, turned out the float level was low.
I took out an early NOS set of Xs and tried a older new set of Autolite 3095s. No problem with them, but I think I will put the Champions back in next spring. ;)
