General Discussion / Motor wiper yoke

The yoke inside the wiper motor was broken (I think it is made of bakelite) so I did a 3D print of the material, The wiper motor ran very well after this replacement.
Does anyone have a problem with this part?

I started the motor and saw that the propeller shaft was wobbling a bit. See attached movie.
Is there some marking on the shaft and parts for centering the shaft I have missed?

This was the first time I have started the motor after buying this car. It has been in a warehouse for over 60 years or more. Someone has disassembled the car long time ago.

So the motor starts up directly after the rebuild but do not go on lower speed

The motor is rebuilt. The carburetor is RT-08 Carter original with some new parts inside.
Yes, I have checked with a dial indicator that the #4 piston is .050 below TDC.
I have a 2 fuel filter in line with the carburetor. Maybe as you say @Touring29 it could be a leakage somewhere?

I have a plastic cup instead of the brass cup (temporary) and can see how the float level works inside the cup.

If I need to buy e.g a Zenith (24 T-2?) - do you know what kind of model I can use? (or other models )

Starting up the engine for the first time.
Full choke and 2 turns and the motor starts up. Oil pressure over 4.
When I close the choke to 50 % it still runs and I can increase the speed.

But when I try to close the choke the motor stops and will not idle.  Can it depend on e.g. air leakage? 

General Discussion / Clean vacuum fuel tank

Do you have some good tips to clean the brass and tank without destroying the brass or soldering or the zinc too much?
The brass float is broken with several broken parts as shown in the image
I think I can repair it with soldering.
is the Self Adhesive Camper Mount Foam Tape -same as the Camper top seal?
Thank you
I will add a thin nitrile rubber sheet between the parts.
Thanks for the information,

So there is no rubber between the running board frame and the main frame?

I'm wondering what size/type of fender welting I shall use for the 1929 2-door Sedan.
I found one supplier: https://www.steelerubber.com/ ok?

1. Is it a list between front fender and frame? (see image)
2. Is it a list between running board and frame (see image)
