  • bearing number for early 1600-2 spindle / IE big brake retro

    Hello all, I am in the midst of converting my front spindles to use the IE big brake units. The old inner bearing is a FAG KL44649 which is too small for the new hubs provided. Does anyone have the part numbers for the proper size bearings for the early spindle using the larger hubs? (I will be going down to IE to buy more parts and would like to make sure they are the right sizes first.) Thanks, Jim

    Rear Brake Kits

    About to endeavor on refreshing all the brakes in my new to me '74 tii. Does anyone sell a full refresh kit for the rear drum brakes? I've seen individual parts but nothing that bundles together everything I'd need. Also what are y'alls thoughts on converting to rear disk brakes? Right now I'm just going for good enough to pass safety inspections and being able to stop, but thinking to bigger future upgrades.

    Brake Master Cylinder Leaking

    I just bought a `74 tii that I've been working on and it's very close to running. The brakes and clutch aren't working and I noticed the reservoir was empty. Hooked up the power bleeder empty and pumped it up to test for leaks and heard air coming out at the bottom base of the master cylinder. Took it off and there is what looks like a small hole at the base where air was leaking out (see pic). Any ideas on how to stop a leak there? Any way to fix the master cylinder if that hole isn't supposed

  • Wheel bearings and some suspension assembly

    In the spring, I painted the subframes and associated bits: All of the bushings are now urethane and I hope I don't regret it.  I bought it all in 2006ish from TEP so I don't know who manufactured all of it.   A bicycle repair stand is useful for front strut assembly.     A nine-year-old is beginning to actually be helpful in the garage.     I am re-using a lot of old hardware. This project is expensive enough and no one will ever see these b

    bring back that side exhaust!

    I am moving from bit to bit on the car shell these days.  Getting ready to roll it out for paint.  When I bought the car five years ago a friend pointed out how the exhaust was not correct.  I was a bit miffed since I did not know that about the car.     Well in a quick effort last night I started to pick at it and noticed the patch was brazed in!     So with a little heat and a pair of pliers - off it came!           Here it is removed.
