2019 Small Wonder Micro and Mini Car meet and charitable fund raiser Dover, DE October 18-20

Michael Braun
 

We are 60 days out from the Small Wonder Micro and Mini Car Meet.  In case you have forgotten the dates are October 18, 19 & 20 in Dover, DE.  See  https://small-wonder-micro-cars.appspot.com/ for the itinerary.   I start a big  push for riders with an email blast this week and my big fear is that I end up with more riders than available cars.  Remember all ride proceeds go to the Elizabeth Murphey School an IRS 501-c-3 charity.

You only have 30 days to reserve your hotel room at the Holiday Inn at the discounted rate of $105 and I encourage you to make reservations soon.  A number of the hotels in the area were already fully booked when I signed the contract with the Holiday Inn and they may not be able to extend the offer.

I’m trying to make final arrangements for things like food and the first thing I’m asked is “how many are attending?”.  So, as Voldemort said to the assembled group of Hogwarts’ students and teachers when, in the last Harry Potter movie, he brought the supposedly dead Harry Potter to the school, “Now is the time to declare yourself.  Come forward and join us …”.  Help me get a reasonably good attendance number and let me know if you are planning to join us.

Whoever created the Crosley VC model deserves a standing ovation. Crosley made fewer than 2,500 of them through four years and they continue very desirable and collectable.

Is it just me, or does it appears the survival rate percentage for the VC models is higher than other models or makes?

Both the VCs and FOR were unique enough and small enough to tuck away in a corner and save for later. I have close to 25% of the FOR production accounted for in the register and a few more show up every year.

What is the best method to remove FOR brake drum

jeff
 

For the most stubborn rear brake drum, use an axle drive nut with a hammer,  or put a hub puller on the four drum bolt holes?  Use heat from a torch on the taper?
Thanks, these hubs haven't been removed in over 40 years.

Jeff,

Use the upmost caution, the FOR hubs, are not available for love nor money, or even love AND money!

I'm no fan of the axle drive nuts, use a hub puller and engage all four wheel bolts, if possible.

Penetrating oil and patience are your friends. Heat judiciously, but most of all, take your time.

I've had best luck using a puller, tighten it up to keep pressure on the thing and gently tap all around the drum with a hammer. It always eventually pops free.
