Re: Tapered Axle Rear Brake Conversion

Matthew,

We are in the process of using the 2259r drums and they are a pretty loose fit, did you encounter the same issue?

Re: Tapered Axle Rear Brake Conversion

Hi Mstthew.

Center (Axle hole) bore on the Raybestos 2955R worked fine? I can't seem to find that information anywhere I loom.

Re: Drive belt wobble

Ricky, by 3/8 you mean a thicker belt? Can't really go wider

Marvel Mystery oil

Hello everyone.

I have never used Marcel Mystery oil before.
I have seen it mentioned alot, throughout the years.

Is this product snake oil or is it magical?

Any thoughts on why it might or might not be good?

Thanks all!

Re: replacement '59 headlight switch

After I installed LED's in the dash, I took out the knob and shaft and cleaned it up with some super fine Emery cloth.
After that it rotated beautifully even though with LED's they won't dim unless there's more done to the circuit.

I lay on my back with my head squeezed in behind the gas pedal to get access up behind the console. NOT an easy way to do anything behind the cluster. I changed out the bulbs...
