Re: Ruckstell Fiber Spacers

An interesting note/question. Didnt Ford use bronze thrust washers in early 1916 cars? I had an original 16 with them. Also had an original 1917 car that used babbitt and an original 1919 car that used babbitt. None appeared to have been molested.

Re: Ruckstell Fiber Spacers

Larry there were two thicknesses of the red fiber I had. The stuff I had saved for myself I gave away for the most part when I unloaded my early Ford stuff. I measured the pieces I still have and they are .060 and .110 inches thick respectively. Thanks for catching the decimal point error, Allan. 😀

Re: Ruckstell Fiber Spacers

Larry I sold most of my red fibre material to the 2 cylinder Ford guys. It came from a stash found in Australia by an early Ford guy some years ago. Tim got some as did others that frequent this forum. If you're interested contact me by phone and I'll investigate further. You probably have my phone ...

Re: Ruckstell Fiber Spacers

Larry, I suspect Ruckstell used fibre washers of varying thicknesses to account for manufacturing tolerances. Or perhaps the washers were not made to exacting standards.. The one I provided you with the Ruckstell years ago was .010 thinner.

Re: Ruckstell Rear Axle Shifters and Cross Sections.

Also noticed there should be a fiber washer illustrated inside the bell housing on the Ford side between the inner surface of the housing and the triple gear carrier. I believe Chaffin calls for a metal washer in that area but Ruckstell used a fiber washer.

Re: Ruckstell Rear Axle Shifters and Cross Sections.

Couple observations. I don't think the pins extend thru the shifting fork in the early shifter. Also there is no inner Hyatt bearing on the Ruckstell side of the axle housing for either the early or late model.

JB Weld has its place but not where, as here, you have side thrust. No way will it hold up to the rotational forces bearing the key.

Re: What are the dates of use of this 2 Piece Driveshaft? I think its pre 1913

Spool is post 1910 because it is 191B not 191. It fits the 13/32 inch studs. The ball is later than 10 as well because the flanges for the bolt holes are thick. But not as late as 13 because the ball has the half moon cut outs for the ujoint pin retaining bolts.

Re: 1909-10 Brass Timer contact ring

If you have access to a mill and lathe you can make a contact ring out of a large bar of delrin. The cut outs for the contacts can be made with a keyway cutter. The moon shaped contacts made from steel bar stock drilled and tapped for the posts. Delicate work but doable.
