  • Lets keep the fight alive with reaming!!

    So got home early and thought I would ream one of the spindles. Started the pilot through the first side making sure it was center and as level as one can with spindle in vice and me at eye level. Well I get through the first side and slide down to the other and it doesn't align. With the reamer out looking straight down it looks like a perfect shot? Any ideas?

    Hood hinges, how to remove pins?
    by dmdeaton
    I have removed the hinge pins on my hood sides, the center pin is hollow, or at least on the ends. I don't care about keeping the original pins, as I will change them out for new. The center looks to be a little trickier than the sides. A good pair of vise grips and a hammer removed the sides. A punch started the pin outward. Looks like you almost need to turn a driver to fit in the hollow to get...

    Front Spindles Easy Removal and the Price is Right
    by Tom Wesenberg
    So, there is more than one way to remove the front spindles. LOL
    The price is right, and even if you don't need one for your car, they can be used to make a wheel balancer.
    I bolted my spare spindle to the stand, so if I should even need it for a car, it will still be good to use.

    King Pin Kit
    by Beauford
    If you purchase the Kingpin kit from the two reputable sources, the felt cups are too big. If you search to buy individually felt cups they state that these are machined to the correct size as the others were bigger.(I'm certain the bigger ones are in the kit) I was putting in pins last night and with the kit felt cups and felt it will just wedge and mangle itself trying to align the spindles. Just...

    Early 28 rear end
    by Manager
    I bought complete front and rear ends not needed by a hot rodder. It's all in good condition and I have pulled the front end apart, got the bits I needed and went to start on the rear end. My shackle holes are very worn in my bells. Plan was as the car this all came out off was that good and everything looked in that good shape to just put the complete rear in and keep the current one for spares....

    Rear of hood?
    by Ted Duke
    My sons are helping me reassemble my 1929 roadster PU which was disassembled in the early seventies (yes, I know, some of you weren't born yet) and I have a question. I can't find the answer in any of the many books I have purchased. The center hood rod slides into the hole in the front. What happens in the back at the cowl. Does it just sit there? I saw a suggestion that you tie a little loop of...
