Re: wheels and rims

Ted, I went thru the same thing with my 23 Canadian Coupe.

I thought the car was nicely original but on removing the wheels to rewood them had 2 different types of felloes & 3 types of rims.

Mine are Kelsey loose lugs wheels.

There are 2 different kind of lugs, ones with a flat nut and ones with a conical nut.

One side of the car has the flat ones the other side the conical ones.

Which one is correct or are both correct?

Re: It has been awhile and have a couple questions

From the encyclopedia 1926 COLORS: All cars were painted black, with black fenders, initially. Closed cars were then offered in colors: green for the Tudor and Coupe, and Maroon for the Fordor. Other options offered later in 1926, perhaps for the 1927 models. WHEELS: Open cars used 30 by 3-1/2 tires...

Re: Removing stuck inner front wheel bearing

Thanks guys, I got it, had to move up 1 hammer size and filed a chisel down flat and pounded away.

I checked the bearing against another spindle and it slides right on.

I took some emery cloth to the spindle very lightly, it did not seem to have a high spot.

Removing stuck inner front wheel bearing

I am having some problems removing this bearing. I may have messed it up already trying to use my gear puller behind the seal and possibly bent the cage.

Any ideas? I know it is NOT supposed to slip on the spindle but this one is really tight.

Buggy Wheel Rebuild | Engels Coach Shop

Stumbled across this watching something else, found it very interesting.

Lots of the same things as in our Model T wooden wheels.

I like the part where half the spokes were put in backwards.
