  • Probably my ebrake?

    So putting on the rear drums, one side slide right on and fits nice. The pass rear not so much. I have ebrake released and brakes in and I still can't get drum to seal to backing plate. I have checked the key placement, and moved it around different ways for giggles. I can't recall if it was like this before and I probably did not realize at that time the correct fit. I was just happy it was on and spun. I sanded a little on ebrake but still off....

    Is your axle key possibly sliding up in the key way when trying to install the hub? Just a thought other than e-brake. Long shot but possible. Rod

    Slip it on without the key and see how it looks.

      Tom it's a wee bit better but not there yet..I'm thinking ebrake needs more off. It's one of those new style brake material that is way to thick. Worked ok with my worn out drums but these are new.

    I have found that ebrake band to be devilish.

    I have actually had to grind a tad off the stop so the band would fully retract, and in some cases the stop was not perpendicular to the band parts anyway, again necessitating a touch up with the 4" grinder. Tape up the axle all the way over the housing to stop debris from getting in there.

    I have also had to chamfer the outboard edge of the band lining a bit, so it would mate up to the inside of the drum better...make the profiles match better. Remember, these repop parts are seldom 100% authentically sized, necessitating stuff like this. In one case, the lining actually hung off the band a bit on the perimeter, and I had to grind down the overhang to make it flush with the metal band. Again, keep trash from getting in between the axle and housing

      Beau by the time you get finished it should be in great shape. Teach your wife to drive it so she will be able to drive you to the funny farm in your new shiny straightjacket.:rolling

        I had to replace one of my ebrake backing plates. Could not get the drum on and finally decided to measure from bearing surface of axle housing. It was off a total of 1/8". Once I got it centered, the drum went on. The backing plate was new from Bratton's. Again a repop part problem.

          Rear axle key question
          by Mickey
          I know the beveled end of the key goes inward towards the bearing but does the bevel itself go down into the groove up?

          I have no key for my electrolock ignition switch, but I have a key machine and blanks. What are the chances of making my own key (how to go about it would be a handy bit of info)or can someone make one for me ? Thanks, Pat...

          Shimming rear hub question
          by Mickey
          When I disassembled the rear brakes for sending out for overhaul I found a worn through shim on the left rear hub. I'm about ready to reassemble the new rear brakes and am wondering how and what to check for as far as shimming is concerned. I ordered up a couple of new shims to have on hand just in case.

          When assembling the rear wheel hub to the axle taper is it installed dry or lubed?

          Pinion gear key
          by Great Lakes Greg
          Probably an easy one. I assume the pinion gear key is the same size as the axle keys?

          Won't Go Into Gear
          by MatthewO
          I have come a long was with my 1930 Ford Model A pickup so far but now I face a different issue. My Model A will not go into gear. I had tested every gear, putting the clutch in, shifting, and then taking the clutch all the way out and the vehicle didn't react. I could however feel as if something was trying to grind inside the transmission. To give a little background this is the first car I have...

          Key cylinder is seized in the handle
          by EarlyBert
          Good day all. I am new to the Model A lifestyle. I recently purchased a 1928 AR Tudor that was, for the most part, restored. One issue I am trying to address is the key cylinder in the passenger door handle is seized in the handle. I made a key for it & the tumblers are free but the plug won't turn.
