"Dave did you get a throw out bearing from these guys ?"

I didn't replace it, but all bearing parts front and rear I did replace where from them. Probably pictures and part numbers in the old build thread. I know tractor guys use them as well for hard to find parts. They were good to deal with, but its been a few years since I have used them. Have a feeling I will be back soon.

I didn't replace mine when I did the bearing. (I should have) I see myself pulling the whole rear end out sometime in the next couple years. Pinion is spraying oil, seals leaking etc.

When I pull the seal I will take it to these guys (see link below) rarely stumped, can usually cross reference an oil felt seal to a modern one. If you have the exact dimensions or maybe an old part number they can get you squared away.

I thought I saw some felt seals for our cars on eBay a couple days ago.

I've actually spent more time than usual working in the garage this winter. Just not related to progress on the Plymouth. I come to realize it needs a substantial amount of work to make it right. (a lot of that would be budget & time) I can get by a little a longer with trailer trips to little shows, where oil leaks are common and unnoticed  :)

Have been working on tractors and old gas engines. Clearing the progress Que and making the room for the eventual Plymouth tear down.

Also have finally got my compressed air setup complete. Was having issues with moisture in the lines, under heavy use. (blasting cabinet) I have a homemade (copper) water condenser and scored a previously enjoyed Ingersoll rand commercial air dryer / refrigerator. So I should be set. Also ran a rapid air kit for additional outlets and high flow to the end of the garage for outdoor sand blasting use. Maybe we should start a garage tools thread, curious to see what some of you guys have for tool setups.

As Frank mentioned earlier, its been a winter here. Broke a record for snowfall in February, which was during and after the polar vortex. Actual air temperatures of -30 F. Fun stuff. Snow blower really earned an oil change this year. So roof raking and dealing with ice damns is another great way to spend free time. And now its going to rain and rapidly warm up. Flooding anyone?........

Hey Fellas:

Been busy with other things down here in Florida, however, I did manage to get the car out this weekend for some exercise for about 15 miles.  It was in the 80's down here!

Thanks Chet,

Can you recommend any supplierr of bearings in US?

I donít buy enough bearings to recommend someone.  Basically though, if you have a modern bearing number just key it into your browser and you should come up with a dozen companyís selling the item. 

If you have dimensions and are trying to match a seal try Granger.

See link to SKF Standard Single Lip Rotary Shaft Seals:

Good Luck,  Chet...

Hi Frank,

I had a friend who retired to his childhood home of Fargo, ND.  I think after a couple of years he found himself back in North Western Virginia.  A stark contrast the Blue Ridge to Fargo.  Or in at least my limited understanding since I have never been to Fargo in midwinter.   I think the snow was welcomed at first but got old fast especially in one's later years. 

Here on the Eastern Shore of Delaware we have been shielded from the few snow storms that made their way to the northeast.  The ocean warms the coast so on average our snowfall is always lighter compared to just 30/40 miles inland.   My daughter is in Fairfax Virginia and when we get an inch or two she will get anywhere from a half a foot to a foot of snow.   Not much by your standards but enough to close the schools for days.  My older daughter is in Cocoa, Fl.  Her kids grab winter coats when the temperature drops to 50 degrees.  So I guess everything is relative.

During the winter I usually turn to indoor projects but since we retired the punch list is getting smaller and smaller.  I guess we are finally getting caught up after so many years.    So it's either create more projects or become addicted to the cable news reality show.  The later being the most undesirable.  So the clocks moved ahead last night which is always a good sign.

Chet...
