Re: 28 worm drive brake drums

All model A's and AA's came with pressed steel drums, cast iron drums are now available only for the model A cars and pu's. Model A car's and pu's had 11" drums. The AA's had 11" drums on front only but are different from the cars and will not fit AA trucks, because of there shape and lug pattern. I...

Re: what lubricates roller bearings in AA drive shaft, outer shaft hot to touch

Yes, your correct about the bump and recess. I thought the race was correct when I installed it, any slight tap will cause one of the pointed ends of the split race to push out slightly. It was hard to notice because of the grease in the race until I wiped it clean.

Re: what lubricates roller bearings in AA drive shaft, outer shaft hot to touch

Heres what gave me fit when trying to install the torque tube which is similar to what you worked on. I had to replace the seal which means I had to remove the needle bearing and the race, it was hard to get the race in the perfect place, the bearing would go in but not all the way, it looked OK but...

Re: what lubricates roller bearings in AA drive shaft, outer shaft hot to touch

I have my 29 rear axle completely disassembled, sandblasted and reassembled, reinstalling the torque was very difficult. My question is, did you remove the torque tube?

Re: 28 AA express rear floor retainer original gauge??

Don't know if this will help, on the 29 AA flat bed, the strips that are 8' long measured with micrometer are .090 thick which is 13 ga in my steel handbook.

Re: Wood hydraulic hoist pump

If the hydraulics have not been in use for a long time, I would remove it and soak it in diesel. The diesel fuel is too thin to test for pressure. If you remove the cylinder and take it apart, you may be surprised how much sludge is in it. If it has a reservoir, clean it out, look for a filter or sc...

Re: Wood hydraulic hoist pump

I've worked on a lot of equipment with hyd systems. If your pump has been out of use for many years, you might soak it in a bucket of diesel fuel for a few days, I made an adapter that goes from a 1/2" drill chuck to the pump shaft, the pump will turn clockwise, then you will know which side is supp...

Re: Breaks 'arched'

Another way is to go to the auto body supply and buy a couple pieces of air file sand paper, it is 2 3/4" wide x 17 1/2" long, get the one with glue on the back, peal and stick to inside of drum and turn, I would use 80 grit. or you might move the drum- hub out with an axle shim.

Re: torque grease seal

Great reply, I had a 5' piece of 3/4 pipe but no reducer, so I used a thick flat washer 1/4" x 1.750" od, the seal and the race came right out, it was easy.
