1931 Shock Links

I had my shocks rebuilt by Apple and went about cleaning up the shock links and other hardware. My question is if there is any guidance about how tight the endcaps of the links should screw in to the ends to secure the balls. Is it safe to assume to get it it tight and snug, but not so tight that the link won't articulate?

I bought a Duracell 6V battery from Bulbs and Batteries and found it to be adequate for an 826. Good Luck!

Lubricants - 8th Series

Hello -- Getting ready for a first drive in my 31 Standard 8. But, I want to swap out the trans, rear end, and steering gear lube before doing so-- is there a one-size-fits-all lube that I can use for all three? The manual I have has vague information in it. Also, I want to clean and repack the wheel bearings -- Does the castle nut need to be torqued to any precise number or is it just to get it snug to the point where there is a slight drag?

BTW, Straight Eight sells just the small ferrule that is soldered in place. No need to run the whole line.

The best part of this design is that Ukrainian hackers can't hack it and plant malware in it.

Thanks. I was able to get the old fitting off the head unit, and after inspecting I concluded the tube was part of the fitting and therefore, Max Merritt will be receiving $60 from me for a replacement line. Very interesting this hydro-static gauge. Looks like the industry only used them 5 years then went to electric sending units.

King Seeley Gas Gauge

On a King Seeley gas gauge, how does the capillary tubing connect to the head unit? Mine is disconnected, but at the top of the head unit is a brass fitting with a small tubular extension coming out. Does the capillary tube slide into that then everything tightened for a compression fit?

Also, anyone know a supplier for King Seeley fluid? I understand a fluid with a precise specific gravity and resistance to fading is in order.

I was after the plastic plug, but I decided to make one using a 7/8" dowel rod shaped to the correct size and carefully drilled to accept Model A Ford brass hardware. The telephone wires are just to test the connections with my multimeter.

I’m good for the fronts but need a taillight socket. Have any of them? I think I can make one out of a 7/8 inch plastic dowel rod, and some thoughtful drilling.

Crin -- If you want to remanufacture some parts, try doing some Oakes tire locks for 29-32; I would think they'd be hot sellers. I have a single reproduction one you could use as a prototype if you'd cut me a deal on a pair that'd fit my 31. Thanks!
