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??

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.

Re: 28 AA brake adjust advice

Recently I completely dismantled a 29 AA differential, starting with the hubs and all the brake parts. When I got to the 2 cams, they were completely froze solid inside the camshaft along with the 2 spring behind them. The cams are supposed to float inside the camshaft and find the drum. hope this m...

When the big 29 AA left the factory with the 6 hole wheel, was the dust cover black or silver?
