  1. Hello, What is involved in installing a rebuilt clutch and throw-out bearing in a 1930 Franklin 145? Thanks! Bill
  2. Can one of you kind folks tell me what the fluid capacity is for a 1930 Franklin Transmission? Also, what is the proper weight that should be used for the transmission fluid? Thanks for the help! Bill
  3. Don, As far as a replacement for your sheared off screw, you can get two replacement screws at Langs Old Car Parts (www.modeltford.com). Their part number is 5023-4-5. I know these are for a Ford Model T, but they are exact replacements and work fine. My 1930 starters (I have two) do not have the two shims that you show in the picture. Regards, Bill Jewell

  8. Gentlemen, I have a spare starter for my 1930 Franklin that I need to repair or replace the entire bendix mechanism on. Would the Model T bendix set work on my Franklin if I installed the larger spring? Would any other modifications be required? Thanks for the help! Bill
  9. Hello, I have a 1930 Franklin that I need to check for leaks in my Intake manifold and Exhaust manifold. Since the engine heats up so quickly, what is the best way to search for leaks on these two manifolds? Thanks for your help! Bill
  10. Hello, I am attempting to adjust the valves on my 1930 Franklin and have run into an issue that I have not seen before. I adusted the valves for cylinders 1, 4, and 2. When I got to cylinder 6 I am finding that i cannot get the gap to open for the exhaust valve. The "rocker arm" / walking beam will not lift off of the top of the valve no matter how much I turn the screw. I hand cranked the engine a few times and I am seeing the exhaust valve open and close. Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the valve or walking beam? Thanks for any help or advise! Have a Great Thanksgiving! Bill Jewell Arlington, Texas (cell) 817-739-8565
