Cutting Down A Model TT Drive Shaft

I am putting a Muncie 3 speed gearbox in my Model TT Truck. The drive shaft I have, that I am getting cut down to put the auxiliary gearbox in, has 0.035 inch run out in it. I was wondering is this too much for this drive shaft? I would like to know what your experience is in this matter is.

Re: Model T head, how can I tell if a T head has been milled?

Just as a side note, this is what I do. When you figure out or know the amount that the head has been milled off the head, please stamp the amount that has been milled for future reference. Like -0.125 somewhere meaty on the milled side of the head. That way you will not have to remember it and the ...

Re: Two Problems

You need to pull the engine. I am pulling mine this winter because I found a magnet clamp and some brass screw heads when I changed the oil this year.

I would be interested in it but I do not have the money now or the room as of yet. I only have room for two at this time. It is just bad timing for me. Ask me in four years form now when I am retired. I plan to get a 1913 or 1914 Model T Touring to add to my collection.
