  1. OK, I may be spoiled, but I expect engines and transmissions to be separable. It is impossible to remove the bell housing with the transmission as on newer cars, because that dowelled housing wraps around to the front of the flywheel! It seems like the clutch/flywheel has to be dropped out the bottom with the housing in place! That meant separating behind the housing, at the transmission itself. OK, except there is a spring between the throw-out arm and the transmission, INSIDE the housing, and only (barely accessible through a small access/vent panel on top. Oh, and of course, the throw-out bearing drops away, as the transmission shaft slides away. I have no idea how I will get it all back together! It would seem to need five small hands on multi-jointed arms to hold all the bits in place while wrestling it into alignment. Has anybody else pulled one of these early straight eights with the wraparound clutch-housing/engine mount castings? Are there secrets I missed? Thanks, jc
  2. I am looking for a part highlighted in the picture below. It is a linkage. It and one 33x4 tire is all i need to have a driving car.
  3. I'm wondering if anyone can help me troubleshoot a gear grinding issue. My 47 Cab has been sitting for about 30 years, only recently getting it back on the road. The clutch feels fine, but I'm not getting a full release from the flywheel I'm sure. It grinds even going into first at idle. Of course, I only did that once then started it in first to get it situated in my garage. Is it likely that something is frozen/rusted, a spring maybe, or bad bendix? I know the clutch itself is fine, although I have not tried an adjustment yet. Looking for any and all advice.
  4. As I'm working on the engine I remembered the pilot bearing was reduced to rusty dust when I took it apart 2 years ago....The Victory Six bible gives a part number- Hyatt RA-133 But I have not been able to get it to cross nor do I see one for sale anywhere online...Any ideas? I have not tried the measure & dig thru catalog method yet...(last resort)
  5. Hi there everybody! I'm new to this forum and am looking for a clutch disc for my Dad's '38 Dodge D8. Does anyone have any they would be willing to sell or know of a good resource to purchase one at a reasonable price? Thanks! Am excited to talk Dodge's with all of you! I also have a '47 Power Wagon that will be a fun old rig to restore! -Ron
  6. I bought a 1964 Skylark convertible with a 300 V-8 and 4-speed for my wife. The car is an original 4-speed car. I can drive the car without an issue but for my wife the clutch is very hard to push and the shifter is notchy and ambiguous. The clutch linkage is in good shape so I think it's the pressure plate that's too hard. The shifter is in good shape-it's just the nature of these shifters. I have made many modifications to this car but they are all bolt-on mods. I have saved all of the original parts in the event that we (or anyone) restores this car to original in the future. I added disc brakes, replaced all of the suspension, stiffer springs, added sway bars, a quicker steering box, electric fan, electronic ignition, and after market 4bbl carburetor. My first thought is to put in a 5-speed and hydraulic clutch from a later car. My wife is more used to this kind of shifter and clutch. However, I'd have to put another hole in the floor. The car is far from perfect but I don't know if this extra hole will irreversibly de-value the car in the future should we decide to sell it. Any thoughts on this? Does anyone know of an after market shifter that will be an improvement? When I was in high school we'd replace the factory shifters with Hurst shifters. They were just as notchy but less ambiguous. Does anyone know a good clutch that has a minimum of pedal pressure? This would help quite a bit. Many thanks for your input. Joe
  7. Looking to buy a cone type clutch and flywheel for a 1915 era, 3 ton, 4 cylinder pair cast engine. 50h.p.
  8. The flywheel on the '26 engine weighs over 150 lbs alone. Along with the multiple clutch we are talking about over 200lbs of weight. Is all that weight necessary? I wouldn't think so since V8's use a flywheel & clutch assy that weighs 1/4 of that weight. The question I have is, "Has there been anyone who has converted this huge flywheel weight & multiple clutch to a lighter flywheel and a regular clutch plate??" Thanks/Lee
  9. Hello,, I am currently restoring a 1926/27 Pontiac in Australia. After pulling apart the clutch I have found a worn/broken section I would like to replace. It appears to be a kind of 'thrust bush' and is made of a graphite looking material. It pushes directly onto a flat plate which is held in place by the pressure plate forks. The bush is shown in the photo below and has an OD of 2.5", an ID of 1" and is 1/2" thick. The housing is still in good condition. I was going to try tracking down some new graphite material or maybe replace the bush with a proper bearing that fits into the original housing. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I am new to vintage cars but am hoping someone may have some experience with these parts and suggestions they can share? Thank you and regards, Ryan
  10. Hi Mopar folks, I recently bought a new clutch throw-out bearing for my 1937 Plymouth, but I can't figure out how to replace the old bearing. How is the bearing attached to the bearing-holder, or whatever it's called? Is the bearing heated to expand the old bearing? If so, what temperature should it be heated to, in order to remove it? Also, what temperature should the new bearing be heated to without ruining it? Thanks for your help. Willard Crawford
  11. Hi there, who would know where I can get a new clutch disk for our 1947 Buick super eight 46C. Please send any sources. Clutch is bad, so far I didn't find any suitable parts. Thank you, Tom
  12. Hey, folks, was told these were from the 1920s, from same car. Any idea on make and model? One of the pedals has a mark that looks like "G.S. 2" thanks!
  13. I need one (I'll take two!) NOS NRS or used CLUTCH DISC PLATES for a 1928 1929 1930 1931 1932 1933 1934 or 1935 Cadillac V8 V12 or V16 using the "Twin Disc" or "Two Plate" clutch. The part is pictured below (photographed at an angle). Please write me at John.Sweney@Brookwoods.com! Thanks!
  14. My husband and I just aquired a 1963 GMC pickup(305 v6). Well it needed a new throwout bearing, so we took the tranny out and got the clutch out...Come to find out it has an 11" clutch and we can't find that anywhere. Everyone is saying it should be 10.4",10.5", or 12". We have found 2 11" online for upwards of $400. My question, is this normal? can we fit a 10.5" on it? are we in for a long restore? TIA
