Re: lugnuts wanted

Re: Any suggestions on how to repair?

I would be inclined to leave it alone, my reason being is the truck will most likely only be driven with little load to shows, parades, or short tours as I do with our club, I think this way it would outlive most folks here on this board. Find another coupler, this will reduce the wear by a half, I ...

Re: To File or not to File?

Spectria, It seems to me to be rude to answer for others, especially with your opening statement, Brady is a go to person for usable info. To answer your post it is a well known fact that the A engine crank flexes badly due to its small diameter, no counter weights and a very heavy flywheel 68# + pr...

Re: To File or not to File?

Hello Cliff I don't see any reason not to, instead of filing use some medium course wet and dry emery paper and a flat surface such as a table saw or flat plate glass to sand them down, it will not take much to remove a few thousandth, so recheck often ----- If you end up to close then you will need...

Re: Dual High Pictures

Hello Red, Ever thing was cleaned of old crease when it was apart a year and a half ago, I had to remove the lower half of the rear u-joint housing to drain what was left of the cornhead, the front u-joint I removed the grease fitting to drain it. I believe the mixing of greases is more critical wit...

Re: Dual High Pictures

I used the John Deere cornhead grease in my U-joints, but have now switched back to using the red Mystic grease, the reason for this is that the cornhead turned to oil and leaked out of the felt seals on the housings.

Re: ?? quality/fit of Howell's Sheetmetal ??

The best way to buy the panels is thru one of the venders, that way if you are unhappy with the quality you will get no hassle returning them, I think Howells are the only supplier to the venders.
