The Jalopy Journal
It sure as hell had better be for a '62, because it was sold to me as such! It seems to match up with everything in my shop manual, so I think...
I will, thanks. Now then, these look pretty clean and reusable to me, what say you all?
[ATTACH] Guessing some new bearings are in order.
[ATTACH] Nevermind. I just used my head (and a large hammer and punch) to break it loose. Onward.
[ATTACH] Okay folks, I’m stuck. Literally and figuratively.
How the hell do you remove the worm bearing adjuster locknut? Is there a special...
[ATTACH] And so it begins.
Thanks for the information, I will file this away for future reference.
It’s being purchased today. Thank you for the head’s up!
I wish I could do that, but here’s the difference between me and most of the rest of HAMB: I don’t own a welder. Or an engine stand. Or an air...
Trad-style A roadster
‘64 lightweight Hemi-powered Plymouth Savoy
‘57 Vette Fuelie (so I can ignore all your waves as I pass by)
All Wish List Stuff, but also When I Win the Lottery Stuff, as my current funding don’t allow for such extravagances. And I’m honestly already...
Will be the first thing I do. Thanks again for the info.
Wow, I've stunned you all into silence either due to my brilliance or my idiocy. Here's hoping for the former.

Thanks Mike, duly noted.
Is that Turner's on Willow?
Received a response from RedHead Steering:
If it is a manual gear, it would be our part # FLS2-7104, which is a gear that we can rebuild, but we...
BTW, I went with this product over Dynamat and some of the others because it was thicker, cheaper, and got very favorable reviews compared to Dynamat.
The threads, what's left of them, are in pretty poor shape. I'll try and post a better photo this evening.
Forgive me, but it's a C1-era wheel, though the six-bolt pattern is the same. It was just a simple adapter I picked up on eBay that allows you to...
It's Noico brand 80mil sound deadening insulation.
A/FX you say? Subscribed.
Thanks for the info. I've gone ahead and submitted a request for a rebuild quote, we'll see what they say.
Yeah, mine's about a half inch shorter. o_O Thanks for the info.
Probably because I wouldn’t even know how to go about doing that. And the adapter only cost me $15.
Boy, it’s slim pickens out there as far as remanufactured units go. But I’m realizing I may NEED to go with a rebuildable, used unit as opposed...
I’ve found remanufactured boxes with shafts online for a shade under $400.
Let me ask you all, has anyone out there rebuilt one of these boxes before? I’m currently watching one on eBay right now which I could pick up...
I'm hoping that glorious new steering wheel will divert attention away from that corrugated metal slab protruding behind it.
