Re: 1931 Intake and Exhaust valve/valve guide clearances?

Metal spray technology or HVAF is commonly used to build up worn surfaces, crank journals, cam journals, valve stems, etc.

In most cases the HVAF coating is superior to the base metal, better wear properties / less friction. This would be one option if you wanted to build up the stem to have the correct stem to guide clearance.

Hi John,

Sometimes there is a thick washer between the castle nut and face of the drum hub. Pictures below of a 29 640 rear axle / bearing assembly, found online.

Re: 1932 cylinder head distributor mount?

The 32 901 left knob on the steering wheel is for the running lights, headlights low & high. There is a control rod running from the left knob to an electrical switch housing at the bottom end of the steering column. The car wiring harness enters the metal housing and is connected to multiple switched connections inside the housing.

The two positions on the distributor housing allow you to easily retard the timing by pulling the pin out and then rotating the distributor to the other de-tent position.

Retarding the timing means the plug fires later in the compression stroke (closer to TDC). Retarding the timing can help reduce detonation.

Depending on what de-tent position you initially set the timing in you could also pull the pin, rotate the distributor for more advance.

Advancing the ignition timing means the plug fires earlier in the compression stroke (before TDC). Advancing ignition timing typically helps raise the high-end power while reducing the low end. It also helps get the spark past the ignition delay and run at peak power.

Some dash panel images, hope they are helpful.

Switches on a Senior 8 model, located on the left side of the dash panel, control the lights for the dash gauges and reading light above the gauges.

Re: Burr Ripley L-8 Oil Filter question...how do you replace the filter??

I think they just don't have the fittings installed in the picture.

Another design for an L6 replacement. Separates in the center, not on one end. Closer to the original.
