    Rear fender steel thickness on Series 14

    Hi, does anyone know the correct gauge thickness of the rear fenders on a Series 14? I need to order steel but finding it difficult to measure and need to replace some rusted portions.

    6 volt solar charger for battery

    I have 4 x 3v solar panels without a regulator and they work well. 2 pairs in series and then both pairs in parallel to increase the wattage. Bright sun provides 7v

  7. Hi Does anyone know the throwout/thrust clutch bearing specs, such as a part number so that I can track one down for my 1929 Buick 29-25. I'm hoping to replace the clutch and bearing on the same day.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, just the half axle shaft protruding out of the axle casing

    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.
