No Hammer involved but a good emergency fix for a farmer wife might be a broken fan belt. Truck over heats and stalls out. She cools it down with a bucket from the well and sacrifices her best nylons to fashion a makeshift Fan belt. (It does work for a while)
Fish net??? :shock: :lol:

Re: Underdrive question-no don't want to run it backwards

Or !! Switch to the low speed worm drive rear end. 7:25 to 1, and then add a Utillity TT over under drive at the rear end. The standard under drive for an AA is the way to go. I have a three speed, with under drive and low speed worm. Parade walking speed is , 2nd gear, in under drive and medium idl...

Re: Emergency Resuscitation Of A Dead Engine

Electrical issues are there. A simple short or open circuit will stop one. Distributor rotor some how popping off. The top of the distributor is held on with two clips. If they would pop lose, the cover could lift up and the rotor jump off. This may happen because of the use of the hammer. then to f...

Re: Fordwood.com ?

I built my own. Not that difficult. If you have an old part to copy. Or, I have patterns for my '28 if you would like to use one if it is the same as yours. Better yet, I have an extra one if you want it. I'm in Hamilton, Mi..

Re: overheating

Been there! On my '28 I fought this for a long time. Finally found out that what I thought was the proper 'water' level was too high. I cleaned the system several times to get the block clean, ( and the supposed clean radiator). I switched to 50% antifreeze to get the boiling pint higher, and added ...

Re: Removal of rear brake camshaft bushing assembly

Some thing doesn't look right in your photo. The splined part is sticking into where the cross cam goes. Drive the splined shaft back. Use a lot of penetrating oil.. If the splined shaft moved out board, it must not be frozen tight. It should move back. All the way out. then the bushing should come ...

Re: Extended Fuel Range - How do you overcome this?

You can use air pressure to 'push' the air from one container to the gas tank. If your going to a show you will want something that rolls up and can be hidden. I saw a pix that someone had a "stack" of lumber in the back that was hollow and held a big ol cooler. looked rustic and natural. Small air ...

Drive train vibration.

When coasting down hill with the clutch in and engine at idle, I get some vibration. I assume this is drive shaft and U-Joint vibration. Can? and how can I balance this? just the shaft? or the U-Joint also?
