Re: Trailer tie down locations

Jim Bollman
 

I would have to go out and measure for the exact measurement, but they are spaced to be inside the tire track. I tie straight.

Jim,   how far apart do you have your e-track spaced on the floor?  Do you tie straight down on each side, or do an X?

The D rings have worked well for the car, but as you predicted, other uses for the trailer are arising, and I'ver ordered 4 lengths; 2 for the floor and one for either side.

I found both of them, but then couldn't remember who they were for.  Give me your address and I'll send them.  If they are good enough, you can send radio in return.

Steve,
You have to pry off the bezel but be extremely careful.  Taking it off is the easy part.  When you put it back on thats when it gets difficult try to bend it back around.
We here at Service Motors do restore the gauges.   Just give us a call 866-449-0029.

Re: Steering wheel removal

Ron D.
 

Well, I used my washer trick, with a 3 jaw puller, and the wheel is off, without breaking. Once I got the puller snugged up, I tapped each jaw finger at the back of the wheel, and the wheel started moving up. The only adjustment I had to do was loosen the puller, and back the nut off, to maintain a small gap between the nut and wheel. My wheel did not just pop off, it slowly moved up the first 1/4" or more, before I could wiggle it off. Here is a pic of all I needed, other than the 3 jaw puller. I did use black tape to hold the washer halves in place, till the puller held them. I hope this will help someone else,trying to remove their steering wheel. Thanks for everyone's help.

Re: Question about installing new brake linings on a 47

David Reina
 


I finished the brake job on my 47 this weekend.  I worked Thursday night until the morning hours riveting the new linings then up to Boston on Friday.  All day Saturday fitting the new shoes.  Butch, the new linings were 3/16” and each one had to be dressed down to fit the drums.  Fortunately my mother in law had a wood shop and on a good Delta stationary belt sander and using eyeball technology I fit each shoe to the drum.
Sunday I finished the job, did the initial adjustments and went for a ride around the block.  The linings that had been in the car I could not get to work properly.  They were a very hard lining with a lot of copper woven into the shoes.  I finished the brake job with those linings in the week before I brought the car to Charles Gould’s Microcar meet in Bostontwo summers ago.  However I could not get a crisp stop out of those shoes.  Part of the Microcar meet involved a 100 drive through towns in MA. I kept hoping the shoes would bed in a bit and work better but I had a scare every time I had to go down a hill with a stop sign at the bottom.  Every time we stopped on the tour I was under the car trying to adjust the brakes tighter.  Finally one shoe must have gotten hot from being tightened too much.  The lining became unglued from the lining, bounded around in the drum, locked up the drum and broke the cast iron shoe.  Did you know that with the mechanical brakes you can drive with one set of shoes missing.  Anyway my car sat at my father in laws all this time (2 years).  Thank you Jay, Butch and Fred for your help and advise.

Dave

We had one but sold it when we sold Service Motors.

Another problem, with the 3/16" inch lining (as I recall), often it won't even fit in the drum, without doing some arcing/grinding on it.

Without the shoe arcing machine, it's a major pain fitting them.

Here's the problem with brake shoes and linings today. No one arc grinds shoes. Either they don't know how or simply don't have a grinder. I'd love to find an old AAMCO grinder.You just put linings on the shoes without arc grinding the shoes and the shoes are only touching the drums in a very small area. I think this is the single biggest problem with Crosley brakes.It matters not if you have 9" or 8" of lining if they are only touching the drum an inch or two.The very first thing my old auto mechanics teacher?? taught us about brakes was arc grinding shoes.That was 48 years ago. There has to be a grinder out there somewhere.

Re: Steering wheel removal

L.E. Hardee
 

The washer halves may fold or slip and damage the steering wheel.  I believe the bearing separator idea, while along the same principal, is superior in that the two bolts keep the halves from folding and the added advantage that the little taper on the backside of  the separator may act as a wedge between the steering wheel and the steering column as you tighten the two halves.  Any extra separating force is a benefit as steering wheels can be hard to get off.  I attached a picture of a bearing separator.  They are not too expensive to purchase.  Also some auto parts stores have a tool lending program for their customers.

The next thing I will try is this. I took a large flat washer, and cut it in half. I want to slip the two halves behind the wheel, and use a 3 jaw puller. I already have a thick 5/8 fine nut screwed on, to protect the threads. This way, the jaws will pull on the metal washer instead of the plastic of the wheel hub. The washer I cut was too thick to fit between the wheel hub and steering tube.  I then went camping for 4 days, so I hope to get the washer ground down a little thinner tomorrow. 

Now that I read Butch's idea, I think this should work about the same.
