Re: Change oil in the rearend?

You could do like Adam shows in that post, but the 1/4" works fine so why go to all the extra work. :) OK it does look nice doing it that way. By the way, I use an Allen head brass plug, so it does not stick down any more then it has too.

Re: Change oil in the rearend?

Mine is only tapped for 1/4" pipe thread, maybe takes a little longer to drain but works fine. Any larger then adding a support might be good. The casting is not real thick so 1/4"PT is good enough. As the size goes up the thread count goes down, so would have less thread to engage in the thin casti...

Re: Change oil in the rearend?

I have done some that are still installed in the car with lube in them. Most of the chips come out as you drill and tap, rest with the lube as it slowly drains out. You can also put grease in the hollow parts of the tap to trap a lot, then a quick flush and fill.

Re: 1907 Model R coils.

google "MTFCA Heinze coils" For the Model T type, what I is read in the postings it would be something like .8 -1.0 for original windings. I would guess the pre T coils would be about the same. If you are changing the windings, that might be different.

Re: Change oil in the rearend?

Nice job Adam. I just drill and tap mine and do the same to all the rear ends I do. Unless the engine oil has been flowing down the tube and over filling and with the amount of driving I do in a normal season, never really worried how often it got changed.

Then all you need are the rim liners. Where the spooks are welded to the rim leaves an area that can chafe the tube.

If you are asking about the Ford wire wheels, then all is needed is the rim liner. If you are asking about clincher or split rims, I use tire flaps in both. The flaps are esp needed in the split rim (21" wood wheel rim). For the clincher it helps keep the tube in the tire when installing on the rim....

Up to maybe 1926, the Dodges did not have a drain in the pan. You disconnected the oil pump feed line and removed the pickup screen, which was held in the side of the pan with two bolts, to drain the oil. Guess they figured, it would be a good time to check/clean the screen at the oil change to make...

If it is coated over the bobbins on the ring it could be thick enough to change the gap. Once you clean it off you should recheck the gap.
