  1. There are two bushings in that distributor housing a upper and lower. They should fit to the shaft with .0005” to .001” clearance. You need them fit correctly otherwise the shaft will wobble around and point gap and timing will be erratic. The tricky part is fitting both of them to the correct clearance and perfectly in line with each other. Once you get new bushings installed I’d recommend finding a machine shop with a Sunnen hone and mandrel that spans both bushings. They can hone both at the same time to the clearance required ,insuring there perfectly in line.
  2. Man, that’s fantastic! I would love to find a spare engine to build and experiment with. I’ve been checking swap meets around here in NH and I think other than a carburetor I’ve come up with nothing.
  3. Thanks again ,Tom. Pump arrived a few days ago. Thank you ,it was a pleasure doing business with you.
  4. Thanks Tom that would be great! I don’t mind if it’s a total basket case atleast it gives me something to start with.
  5. There is no other seal that I’m aware of. I’ve never seen a engine with one and the parts book does not list one. Possibly excessive main bearing clearance causing excessive flow threw the bearing, overwhelming the drain tube ? Crankcase breather plugged? Excessive blow buy pressurizing the crankcase? Just a few things that could cause leakage at that location. I can’t cay mine is perfectly dry back there but it does not drip, the design does not work perfect under all conditions but it does work well enough to be acceptable in 1928. 😀
  6. Yes those three holes are on the outside of the felt seal. The felt seal prevents oil pan oil from pouring out when going up a steep hill and the three holes allow oil that just went threw the rear bearing to drain into the trough then threw the tube back into the pan.
  7. Also there is no rear main seal as we know it. Just a felt seal that seals on the rear main cap and the slinger on the crankshaft that slings the oil into that trough in the pan.
  8. This is a picture of my 28 std six engine but I believe it’s the same plate.
  9. Richard I just found this thread, absolutely fantastic work.
  10. I kept it simple the bushing is bigger than that end hole so a drop placed in that end hole will suffice. I did size it for a nice right angle flip top oil thingy if i ever decide to install one . haha
  11. If you have the hubs and just need drums check out ( ) they have quite a selection of drums , there modern truck and trailer drums but they might be able to be machined to fit. Worth a look, something like this.
  12. I bolted the brush holders on with some nice brass bolts I had. Didn’t feel like making some rivets 😬.
  13. And ended up with this. 😀 I left it thicker where space allows I don’t expect this to fail again. 👍🏻 Hahaha
