Green bay, the bronze, forgot about that,,that does wear well,and now they have aluminumized bronze, which as long as oiled will last just about for ever.. i made a set of cam bearings out of it for my dads packard 12.

they use it for roller coaster bearings.

green bay...thank you, that is great advice. i will look into it,

cause i am pretty sure i am going to make my own casting, to hold bearing.

packard went aluminum to lighten things up.,, my casting will be out of hot roll,, and hardened..

thanks again for your in put, i have torringtons bearing book and i will show to the shop,, they have their hardness specs. in there..

green bay,,as far as heat,,i don't think so, that tail shaft is full of oil,

the only thing i am not sure of is that i had to grind the shaft down a few thousands. i am more worried of spliting the shaft. but i think it will be ok,,, ia am not going to race it. do burn outs etc...

what i might do is machine a new casting that holds the bushing. Since its comes out, then i can keep the org. size of shaft.

and get a larger needle bearing. machined to fit.

Hi,,all,,

with my 400, i am going to leave the strips off, or remove the stripes.. they do hold rust... so the 400 would have the look of a caribbean and an exe.

but i also thought of making a tool with wheels for each channel. for on the car use the moldings to keep it straight while rolling it.

My thought is the other way, the needle would give more pressiure.,, the big problem with the ultramatic is when the bushings wear you lose oil pressure.

The only bushing with an oil hole are the bell housing and rear pump.

For the bell housing, i think the needle bearing, will reduce or stop the oil leak from the front seal.

Yes this is R&D project..but if i can get it to work, the transmission will last alot longer.

as the saying goes,,ANOTHER PACKARD FIRST,,,,
