    BORGESON GEAR BOX INSTALL WITH FAST RATIO OR STANDARD PITMAN IDLER ARMS???

    There was a thread on FEBO I think from someone who had the fast ratio stuff but removed it and used stock and it solved his problem.

    crankshaft question....

    True - but I was just pointing out it is not super hard or should not be really pricey to get the crank done so you can use the standard bush and not cut the snout.

    crankshaft question....

    Any competent machinist with a large enough lathe with a long enough bed and the appropriate steady would be able to set the crankshaft up and get it running true. Put the damper snout in the chuck and support the rear of the crank with the steady. From there drilling/machining a crank to the...

    Prop valve question?

    You really need to fit a vacuum booster or hydro boost - and a proportioning valve to stop the rears locking up. Look at a modern car and at how many have manual disc brakes - ah that would be none.

    Prop valve question?

    The reason they are not much good is a disc brake needs around 900 psi of line pressure to operate efficiently. It is hard to achieve this with a manual setup. A drum brake only needs 300 psi so you fit a proportioning valve to the rear drums to limit the pressure. The front discs need all the...

    rust between door skin and shell

    It will wick in there to a certain extent. The call is depends on how bad the rust in the fold really is. My experience - if you can see it externally/slightly flaky it is probably worse when hidden in the seam. The factory certainly would have just folded it together no matter what was there...

    Yet another 8-3/4 setup question. 3.73

    What pattern or how good you can get it depends on the quality of the gearset manufacturing. If that is good as it gets you either decide to run it or buy another gearset.

    Leaky brake

    The switch has sealing O rings so it probably can leak fluid. Yes from what I remember of rebuilding mine the rod would spin if you loosen the jam nut.

    Cold Case Radiator Hose Size Mismatch

    You can buy silicone hose reducers or spin an adapter up in the lathe and have a join in the lower hose. Thinking about it a rubber sleeve with 2 back to back hose clips would work. Use the worm gear clips. Might be a trick finding something with a wall thickness 1/8. The bulge on the end of...
