Re: 1929 wire wheel hubcaps

I'm super sorry to hear about that. A lot of history lost.
I'm not needing the hub caps but if you put the item number in your posting it will help others find it.

Are any of the axles and warfords that went through the fire possibly salvageable?

Re: Set of 1929 Bud rims with hubcaps

I believe that it may still be possible to send them individually through the U.S. mail. Wrap a piece of duct tape around the wheel the same as the flap would mount and write the addresses on the tape. If the rings won't stay in place put a two or three small spot welds to hold them in place. They c...

Re: worm drive drive shaft

I remove the rear most rivet. The housing at that point has a little bit larger diameter giving the replacement pin more room.
I'd be reluctant to swap the bronze gear around as by this time the gears are pretty comfortable running where they are.

Re: Worm drive shaft & bearings

I think the bronze ring gear will fit but it will be a little bit narrower. The rest I don't believe will. Neil will know.

Re: Filling a worm drive rear end

I put some in through the top most filler plug just to make sure that there was 600 wt. oil on the thrust bearing at first. Then I finished filling using the lower fill hole. I don't think that greasing the thrust bearing is necessary as the 600 wt. will coat the upper worm drive and thrust bearings...

Re: Filling at Warford Transmission

With the shift tower off I put in two quarts in mine and there was still room for more. With the tackiness of the 600 wt. I didn't feel the need to fill it all the way to the filler plug possibly lessening the tendency to leak. Working well so far.

Re: 1928 88-A platform

I have an extra board that I had made when I did mine. I'll get some measurements and a couple of pictures for you. Might be a day or two before I get to it. Somebody else may have the information for you before that though.

I've plenty of experience rusting stuff to match patina and would be happy to share what has worked for me. If you end up getting something bright and shiny let me know.

Re: Flap or Duct tape ?

If I were to go the duct tape route I'd splurge for Gorilla tape.

Re: 29 wheel

I received four 28 spoked AA wheels shipped this way back in 2011. I'm thinking that it should still be okay to do so. I did some reading and what I have found it that USPS is required to ship anything that meets size and weight restrictions regardless of packaging as long as an address and postage ...

Re: 29 wheel

I believe that a wheel can be shipped through USPS without a box. Just put a couple wraps of duct tape around the wheel same as where the wheel flaps would fit. Write the To and From addresses on the duct tape. Will save the boxing costs and the dimensions will be a bit smaller saving on postage.

Re: What happens when a flat occurs

Glad your going to use the services of the tire shop.

My uncle Bill while inflating one had a lock ring break loose on him many years ago. Knocked out every one of his teeth and broke his jaw in at least 4 places. Was very lucky to have survived.

Once properly aired up these tires are quite safe.
