  1. I've been doing some editing in this thread. Figured I'd drop a link to a more recent thread about the cotter bolts for the lower fulcrum pins. There's also a bit of info about the seals....like the ones shown above. I also have 40+ sets of king pin kits on hand. Check my site for info bluehandsfab.com

    I've never actually found a bad matchbox dizzy.....just poorly grounded ones. :)

    With the matchbox dizzy, you need a dedicated ground to the body of it. I'm sure any EI dizzy will need one. While you're running new ground wires, make sure you run one from the body of the dizzy to the block or a known good ground.
  4. Mike and Hainz have pretty well covered it. A spongy pedal is air in the line. If the pedal goes down slowly while pressing hard on it, there's a leak. The leak could be at a bore seal in the m/c or wheel cyls and you won't know it since it will take some time for the fluid to build up in the cups. If it leaks at a fitting, that's pretty easy to find. The pedal won't feel rock hard until the shoes have "bedded" themselves to the drums. Back in the day, they would grind/sand the shoes to perfectly match the diameter of the drum. They don't do that any more so it's common for the sho
  5. Do you have paypal? Hopefully, Adolf Brown will follow the CDC and let us breath for a change.

    If you have too much trouble finding a rubber line, you can get generic SS line with adapters. About a third of the way down, you'll find examples of what I'm talking about. You can get any end you need. http://www.bluehandsinc.com/caliper-options.html On the trans output seal.....when I had the '64 NL320, I looked at the seal. I found that every truck trans from it, up into the HB's had the same output seal
  7. When you click to reply and the box opens up......there should be a Drag files here to attach, or choose files... at the bottom.
  8. Hell....if I have to drive all the way from Gresham, the least you could do is haul your butt up here. 😉
  9. I guess I'll plan on coming. No clue if I'll drive my wife's 521 or not.
  10. I was thinking about how Moss doesn't have 100 of them and considering making them if they run out. Then it dawned on me that they're probably not the only supplier. lol I found a couple of other places that show having them. A couple of the places have a minimum order which is inconvenient when you only want two $4 bolts. I'm tempted to order a few dozen to include with the kingpin kits. I'm also looking at small anti-seize ampules, too. I have lots of anti-seize around here, but someone else may not want to buy a $30+ tube/tub of it. I'll have to think about that and research it some
  11. Huge shout out to Stoffregen Motorsports for providing links to the cotter bolt options!!! Big thanks to debbheff and Coop for the info on the fulcrum pins and seals. When I get a chance, I'll link this thread on my site and post up the kingpin kits I have available. The shims I had on order came in yesterday. Since the cotter bolts are available thru Moss Motors, I'll be able to post up the kingpins soon, rather than waiting until I get them made.
  12. Just posted a vid on my youtube channel with the info. The info is also on IG and FB now, but I can find it on YT more easily down the road.
  13. He bought them....we're good. Martin is great. He started, but since you know him, then you know that things went a bit sideways and he couldn't keep doing them. I'm pretty sure that when he was able to do them again, he just didn't really want to. I completely understand that! Every day I think about shutting the shop down again because there's so much of it that I really just don't want to do. Hell.....somedays I think I'll sell all the equipment and put a pool table in my shop. lol
  14. I'll try to do a video fairly soon. I just got the other 4 pieces in from the last recommendation......they're the ones. In fact, the four of them are cheaper shipped than I can make/ship them for......so I will NOT be making them. I'm going to contact them about ordering a bunch to go with the kingpin kits, but I will not be reselling them by themselves. I'd have to mark them up and my shipping is a lot more. I'll post the info for them on my site when I post the kingpins for sale. https://mossmotors.com/pin-cotter-unf?assoc=135520
