Looks great! Did you put oil in the rear end??? (You never know!)
Amazing! She looks great....looking at your avatar and what youve done its hard to believe
Full of oil, and yes I could have forgotten ...
Sounds like a tire rub .. Rub silence rub silence rub etc etc
Can't find anything rubbing anywhere , jacked it up ran it with and without tires ...nothing
Rear pumpkin is from John 9 inch
Moser narrowed the rear and made the axles
Brakes an drums are new
Only makes a noise under load and acceleration
What a great job. You can be proud!
How far apart is the rub-silence pattern? U joint?
It's a relatively long rub sound snd loud under acceleration
I would have said tire , initially
Now it sounds like a metal rub like a drum to backing plate
Could not identify anything meaningful when I looked at this perhaps I missed it
I would not discount anything at this point
Sorry I have no noise solutions, but I do have some of those coffee sacks...err, upholstery material
Hope the noise is an easy fix. Car looks great.
I am mind blown! Great work man!!!
The air cleaner snouts are simple to make. I made this into a dual snout.
Dyce looks great , I could use one
Re arena noise is still a problem , I have re adjusted pinion angle
Pull the drive shaft and inspected
Pulled the rear tires and drums 3 times
Can't find any marks or scrapes on the drum backing plate
Switching drums side to side makes no difference
Noise gets worse the longer you drive it, increase maybe associated with brake use
Does not seem to be deep enough to be gears
Have sanded the shoes on the high spots...
Thanks a bunch
Could the edge of the shoe be hitting the inside of the drum? Maybe the return springs too heavy for the hold down springs? Self adjuster not seated right, if you are running the adjusters. Good luck, Dennis
Thanks for the suggestions
I appreciate it
Can you run it out on jack stands?
I ran it on jack stands , no noise
Noise only occurs on acceleration
Could you have a roller sticking in the bearing? if one of them has light pitting it may only stick under load.
My coupe also had a noise from the rearend in the beginning. It was exactly as Dennis D said . Shoe edge touched the drum. Grinded the shoes a little on the sides and the noise was gone .
If it isn't the mentioned, I'm sure a lot of rpm can fix it Mike
Mike: This likely has nothing to do with your issue but, I couldn't find new drums for the 8" in my car so I used '82 F150 drums. 8" with a 4 1/2" bolt circle (only year for that on pickup). the drums were a little deep so I had to make spacers to put on the axle before installing drums. They have made contact once or twice but not necessarily under load. Hope you find it....Tim
How's the roadster coming along???
Way to slow at the moment Tim,this autumn it's been a lot at work and also helped a friend with a chassis for a '32 sedan .
Now I'm spending the time giving the Coupe an airpump during the winter and the plan is to get back to the roadster project as soon as the Coupe is put back together before the summer.
Anyway I've recently found a Halibrand QC for the roadster .
hmm...the bearings are new...I could pull the axls
sounds more like the right side is causing the issue..
Martin I texted you a couple weeks ago.. probably in the middle of the night..sorry
I ordered new drums and shoes spring kit on Sunday. I am changing everything to do with the brakes... will give update once I am finished..
I enjoy watching what you guys do. Always something interesting and or informative.
Did you install Strange axles?
That was funny!
Did you ever get this figured out? D
Thanks for asking but unfortunately no
So this afternoon I tore the brakes apart and worked on replacing the hardware and shoes
