Re: overheating

advance that timing, the easiest thing to try first in my opinion. my truck would boil in 10 minutes sitting at an idle in driveway. advanced or turned maybe 1/8 inch, actually just a few degrees and runs cool all summer. hope this works.

i had a similar thing. the timing was retarded just a bit too much. i don't mean on the lever, adjust inside the distributor just the smallest bit with lever all the way up on column. hope i don't confuse you. hope it works. kevin

Re: GREAT SOURCE FOR VINTAGE BEARINGS

Re: GROOVED VERSUS SMOOTH HYATT STYLE ROLLER BEARINGS

there is a company called lang't that sells model T parts. i looked in their hyatt section. they said that the one's that are available don't have the grooves and they would not recommend using them on the outer end of rear axles. this made me wonder?

GROOVED VERSUS SMOOTH HYATT STYLE ROLLER BEARINGS

ARE THESE INDEED FOR OIL FLOW. I HAVE HEARD THAT THIS IS JUST A MARKING FROM THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS. THE STEEL IS WRAPPED AROUND THE ROLLERS ALMOST LIKE RIBBON? SOME SAY THIS STYLE FLEXES AND THE NEW STYLE ie. SMOOTH DOES NOT GIVE AND IS A BAD DESIGN. ANY IDEAS OR VIEWS, EXPERIENCE??? THANK YOU I...

Re: Truck progress photos

thank you for the info. are there any other seals that i should check before install. i purchased warford ready to bolt in. very clean inside, honest guy sold it to me. just want to be sure other than the obvious gaskets that there are no other seals in the "snoats" on each end of the unit.
