Drill bits

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Drill bits
I'm kinda obsessing over drill bits these days. I used to buy drill bits at harbor freight and they would do OK for awhile and then they would start walking and required you put your weight into them, then start smoking and making weird noises.

Then I recieved a set of drill bits for my birthday in June. At first I thought it was pointless to spend good money on drill bits because of my Harbor freight way of thinking.

I used these bits a lot in the last couple weeks on my valiant...

Drum Brake Assembly Questions

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Drum Brake Assembly Questions
I had someone work on my rear drum brakes. I believe just about all the Chrysler products in the late 60's and 70's had the same basic assembly design. My question is, I think the guy put the shoes backwards, like the front shoe in back and the back shoe in front.

Would this cause them to grab? The long shoe goes in the front right?

Thanks

8-3/4 hard to turn the wheels

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 8-3/4 hard to turn the wheels
I just had a rebuilt 8-3/4 installed on my Duster. With both wheels off the ground, in neutral, it is pretty hard to turn the rear wheels forward by hand, both of them turn when you turn one, and I know they are spinning things in the transmission so there should be some resistance, but it seems excessive, but what gets me is, it is 2x harder to spin the wheels backwards by hand.

What's up with that?

Carter Carb. Don't know anything about it other than it's been sitting on my dad's shelf of years. I'm sure it could use a rebuild. $25 + shipping.

Need a two or three groove crank pulley from a 1969 or earlier small block with a cast iron water pump. The inner most pulley is smaller in diameter.

A local racer just got one. Right when the "pandemic" started he bought a COPO. He was thrilled when he first bought it....few weeks ago I seen he had posted it for sale, he mentioned he had his eyes on some sort of "Super Car", some sort of Ferrari. Wednesday night we had an Open Road Course night at Spokane County Raceway, Ed was there with the Demon. I never got a chance to talk with him about it...
