    Differential Set-up

    Alright.-- so this week I finished the second differential, this one is for the Victoria. Here are the shim numbers.





    This ring gear/pinion ratio is 3.54:1. I read someplace, sometimes these were marked on the Banjo. The marking was on the web from the drive shaft flange to the banjo body.. If memory serves the marking would be:

    11 - # Pinion...

    started a blog post Measuring Backlash

    Measuring Backlash

    After my previous post I decided I would try to get a backlash measurement on the ring gear. It took some time to figure it out, but I did manage to get my dial indicator in the hole were the ring gear is. I was able to move the carrier thru the other hole, with a screw driver as a lever.



    The first measurements were widely variable around the ring gear, so I decided to...

    Rear End Build

    Spent part of Sunday and Monday working on the rear end for the Woody. Nothing much new to add to the already significant amount of information that exists on building rear ends on this forum and other sources, but wanted to document what was done for this rear end. If you are going to do this the Tom Endy documents are a must read, but don't ignore other inputs. There are many ways to skin a cat....

    Electrical

    I’ll start by saying it’s far from stock original. I installed a 12 volt alternator. The harness that was installed previously got pulled out and some of the wire was salvaged. I like to have all circuits fused so I made 2 panels holding 2 fuse blocks. One is for power without key on and the other has power only with key on. I bought one of the 3 gauge polished aluminum brackets from Bert’s...

  • FEB 2021 Running Gear Back in the Shop

    So I picked up the running gear, it runs smooth and every bearing, brake lining, drums, gears, etc. has been cleaned inspected for wear tolerances and if not in spec then replaced with a good original, NOS or quality brand new parts where available. I ended up going with a 6V alternator and a new higher efficiency radiator with leakless water pump, the engine has inserted bearings and an oil filter...

    First day in the garage

    Got the Falcon in the garage for the first time yesterday to do some exploratory work and just generally see what I'm dealing with. All in all, it is very solid. The cross member that goes over the transmission tail housing is rotted on one side, I have sourced a replacement. The floor in that immediate area also seems to be starting to go but it's not horrible. That also turned out to be the cause...

    JAN 2021 It runs!

    Engine ran for the first time since 1988 Friday night! I have a video but I think it is too big to upload. A few more brackets to put on and I should be able to pick it up next week if I can get a day off work.

  • JAN 2021 Frame, engine, Steering column/gear

    Frame is sand blasted and painted, the engine is almost all together and the steering column/gear rebuild is done.
    Parts should be going onto the frame soon, wheels are getting powder coated black and should be done soon too.
    I am anxious to see how the body and bed fit back onto the frame.

    Back on the Wood body

    Well I finally got back to the shop and put some sawdust on the floor. Working on the bottom piece that goes behind the rear wheels. First, cut the tendons to mate into the pieces that the fenders attach to. Because the saw cuts are straight, the joint needs to be altered to fit the curve. I put a scribe line on the lower piece. A little work with a chisel and then to the drill press, where I...

    Installed and sized the wrist pin bushings today.

    Picture shows my Sunnen Pin Hone with a bushing expander mandrel being used to expand the bushing before honing. You can see in the picture that the expander puts enough pressure on inside diameter of the bushing to cause it to grow in length. This mandrel also trims the bushing to proper length after expanding.

    Rear End for Vicki, Day 3

    More cleaning and got the bearings and seals removed. Doesn't seem like a lot of work, but it took all day.

    This a pic of the double race for the pinion, that is pressed into the banjo. I have found that running a bead of weld around the race makes it easer to remove, so now all races get this treatment.


    Also had to remove a twisted off bolt from the banjo. An Easy-Out...
