  1. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    Thanks Fred, it is possible that I may have overfilled the differential when I replaced the oil with a 250w

    I would be very mindful of what power you put through the wooden spoked wheels.

    Do not use an ultrasonic bath as it can damage the pot metal.
  4. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    Thanks, I have not checked the spout so that's my next job. Many thanks for your help. The axle nut was tight locked by the lock washer.
  5. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    There is a vast amount of free play between the shaft and bearing race in your photo number 3, I only have about 10 thou but that is where the oil is coming from and getting into the bearing and mixing with the grease. It slowly leaks out through the hub cap and splatters over the tire. Thanks for the photos which are exactly the area in question.
  6. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    That's good to hear but I do have an issue of oil seeping through which is why I thought it might be a seal.
  7. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    Yes, just the half axle shaft protruding out of the axle casing
  8. 1929 real axle seal/bush

    After removing my real wheel on my 29-25 I noticed that the axle shaft had a lot of free play in all directions. can anyone tell me if the bronze coloured insert is a seal or a bronze bush? Also how is the bearing race removed? there appears to be either a rivet or bolt in the centre attaching it to the axle casing.

  10. Universal Joint on drive shaft 1927

    Does anyone know of a modern equivalent for the drive shaft universal joint drawing number 20490/20495 I have looked through the clubs Q&A and also this forum and not found any details.
  11. Wanted. 19" tire lock(snap) rings

    I'm confused Mike, I paid you $125 to ship via FedEx but you used USPS. Why? Oh and the tracking number doesn't work.
  12. Wanted. 19" tire lock(snap) rings

    I am looking for some good 19" tire lock(snap) rings for my 1930 Franklin that has wooden spoked demountable wheels. I'm not worried about the finish but must be solid with no cracks. I believe drawing number 26481 is correct but using specs for 34768. Would need to be shipped to the UK 26481 TIRE RETAINING RING TAPERED FOR 32X4 RIM.PDF
  13. Mike, do you have any good 19" snap (lock) rings for my 1930 wooden spoked demountable wheels?
  14. Gearbox and Diff oil grade - 1925-25X

    You have a point there, I guess most of us after knowing that it leaks a little would tend to overfill just to compensate for the leaks.
  15. Gearbox and Diff oil grade - 1925-25X

    Just as an update, I have filled my diff with Penrite 250 and strangely it appears to be leaking more. I think a closer look at all/any seals is on the cards.
