    Franklin parts needed

    Tom is a great guy. Give him a call.
  2. The second carb is common to many tractors depending on number. Allis Chalmers, Case and Oliver all used them in the 30's.

    32 Ply PB tranny prob

    Never worked on a PB, but have 32 Chrysler CI and 32 Dodge DL. Both have floating power mounts, shift lever is mounted to frame and not to transmission. Maybe sagging mounts have allowed lever to pull out of 1st and reverse shifter rail?

    Effect of delayed maintenance.

    A good friend had a black snake in the cowl vent area of his Corvette. Flushed it out with hot water.

    Corn head gearboxes operate under incredible pressure and shock loads, and at a high rate of speed.

    Need very tacky grease

    John Deere TY24425 water resistant grease. Tackiest out of all our grease. What we use around the shop to hold needle rollers in place.

    I really should have been more specific on what I use. I use Mobil 600 which is about an ISO 320 rating, or 140 in a API chart. I will agree that I have seen oil sold for Model A Ford use that is way to thick. 600w was an old AGMA rating from the 20's , Mobil 600 is still made to old formulation. 600 Super is a different animal all together, ISO 480. Mobil 1000 is ISO 680. I also have steam traction engines and live steam locomotives, so I have done a pretty fair amount of research into various cylinder oils. Have Mobil 600 in two Detroit four speeds and don't have an issue. But I will add we don't put the miles on that Jeff and Tom do, and probably never will.

    I run John Deere 10w30. Good oil, but I work at for a Deere dealer and get it very reasonable. Mobil 1 on pads.

    So you are saying none of the rest of us successfully drive our cars? Last time I counted I had 15 roadworthy cars and trucks in my care, including six Franklins. Have yet to have a problem using what the manufacturer called for lubrication.
