    Re: Front hub bearing grease repacking

    I believe you might be referring to the video that shows John Twist of University Motors. I have not watched that video in a long time but I believe he is showing to remove the outer bearing and...

    Re: Front hub bearing grease repacking

    The old time mechanics, and I do mean "Old Time" like back when I was a preteen (by the time I got to high school the practice had been largely abandoned) again the old timers would put a swatch of...

    Re: Wheel Tire Camber

    I used the Delrin offset bushing from Moss. Worked a charm. If I remember right there is a zerk fitting in the top swivel pin bushing but not in the trunion bushing. Never had to touch it after...

    Re: Thread Locker on Shock Bolts?

    More than 15 years ago when I rebuilt my shock towers I reinstalled the shocks and used blue thread locker on the threads. I use to think about retorquing them but never did because I didn't want to...

    I was thinking it doesn't look like one of the early six cylinders. Looks much later.

    Re: Doing a favor, Is it worth the trouble.

    It's a good thing that some people think it is worth it. Otherwise many would miss the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the cars and to share in the camaraderie and fellowship with other...

    Re: 3.5 ring and pinion

    Yep, I agree with you Healey Nut. I must say that the fact that mine whine some is annoying to me but it is not really excessive but definitely noisier than the original gears. The guy that set...

    Re: 3.5 ring and pinion

    Dougie, I believe you have something there. The extra processes such as what you have shown I believe certainly go along way towards solving the problem. Unfortunately I believe that the parts for...

    Re: 3.5 ring and pinion

    I really think the problem is in the quality of workmanship and tooling that is acceptable to some parts of the aftermarket. With the one set of gears I could almost tell that the tooling that was...

    Re: 3.5 ring and pinion

    In my opinion you have about a 50/50 chance ( or less) of getting a quiet set of gears from any source. This is not to discourage you from getting the gears you want just to give you my experience....

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Larry, there is a variation between the early 6 cyl cars and the later 6 cyl cars before you get to the dual light system in the BJ8s. You might run into this so I better cover it. My last circuit...
  13. Re: Shifting into 2nd, problem because of the Flywheel?

    I agree with Ray. I don't believe any non-syncro transmission can be expected to go into 1st gear smoothly all the time. Touching another gear before attempting to go into 1st gear sometimes works...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    This circuit will work. With the N/O (normally open) contacts open the stop/turnsignal relay will operate normally. There would be no interconnection of any circuits. When the 3-way toggle switch...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.
