  4. Thank you all for the nice comments! Being able to work through the problems on this car is a great release after a challenging day at work in the real world. Nothing better than heading out to the shop and escaping the daily grind. She has been in our family since the day she was purchased 83 years ago. <o:p></o:p>
  5. Here is the link to the step by step guide. I could not get the PDF to upload to this forum. http://www.ply33.com/Repair/brake_drums/
  6. Thx and agree! I'm creating a step by step guide including part numbers, pictures and purchased items which Todd will put on his site at POC for future reference.
  7. New drums for my 1931 Plymouth PA<o:p></o:p> After a long summer of many major mechanical repairs my last project for this year was to address the drums. I searched high and low for replacement drums (11”x1.5”) with no luck. <o:p></o:p> My last option was to make something work as my drums were way beyond spec and not safe to drive with. I found the 1931 Model A drums matched the size but in order to make all this work would need machine work. I removed the hubs from the Plymouth drums, machined the center hole in the Model A drums to match the step in the Plymouth drums, machined new holes for the wheel studs and moved the hubs to the inside of the drum as on the Plymouth they are on the outside of the drum. Brake shoes are relined and all seals are new. I did have to add a small shim behind the backing plate to allow the new drum to make complete contact with the shoe, roughly .010.<o:p></o:p> This has been far from easy or cheap but the finished results were well worth the hours, dollars, and challenges. <o:p></o:p> Here are a few pictures for reference: </o:p>
  8. Sorry for the delay. Vacation with the wife took time away from my project! I did get it done. It was actually fairly simple. Pulled the drive shaft, removed the parking brake drum, and the seal was attached with three bolts. I found the shaft on the brake drum inside had pitted very bad over time. After media blasting all parts I machined the shaft, installed a speedie sleeve and a new modern seal. Reassembled and its as good as new! Here are a few pictures for future reference:
  9. Thank you! Yes I believe this is the seal. I plan to put her on jacks tonight and start the tear down. Will give you a update when complete.
  10. I just completed rebuilding from the block back on my 31 PA. Pulled the bell housing and installed a new bushing at the clutch fork, NOS pressure plate, clutch plate, throwout bearing, media blasted everything, and painted everything. Along the way I did replace the rear engine seal with a modern neoprene seal. Previously I rebuilt the rear pinion seal and media blasted the drive shaft. Looking below she looks like a new car. Now for the question: I took her out for a test drive and the both the engine seal and rear seal are tight, no leaks. I did find gear oil leaking from the rear of the transmission just before the parking brake housing. I’m aware an oil seal exist at the rear of the transmission but am asking for some info on how to get to it? Does anyone have experience with this seal? Do I need to pull the transmission, parking brake housing, or can the work be done with the floor boards removed and the car on jacks? The books I have on her simply say rear oil seal with no direction for remove and replace. Thank you, Patrick
