    Good Morning Boys, Spent the last couple days on Spring clean up. Good to get outside and do some manual work. Boy my muscles are sore. Looks like a DaWiz day here, rain, drizzle, damp, cold...…. Sunny later.

    That is just it...I have all the parts that the Parts Price List calls for plus I assembled it just like the Service Bulletin has said. Cant compress hub any more to tighten up the 5 lockwashers and nuts yet I still have that 1/4 inch play up and down movement with the discs themselves. Hmmmmmmm????

    The parts can only go on one way...I think!

    Great project Ken. Fine attention to detail.

    Knowing your background, I would have thought that you would have used an F150 Tremec transmission rather than the Mitchell OD. Either way, you have one fine vehicle there. I'll have to make a point to come see it next time I am in the Dallas - Tyler area.

    I'm with Tom on this, last time I rebuilt my Model A multi-disc clutches they were both like tight compact units. I don't know if you have seen a motorcycle multi-disc clutch, they look exactly the same. If they are not clamped up tight together they will just slip.

    The spring should keep the pack clamped tightly together until the clutch throw out bearing pushes them apart.
    Are you maybe one disc short?

    The new rad was junk. There was a bad solder joint around the petcock. It’s frustrating when you put the work in & all you have left is to add fluid, just to have to take it all back apart & do it again tomorrow. Then I had to explain to the owner what happened & let him know that I will be doing it again tomorrow for free. I guess it could always be worse...
