Ok, FINALLY got the reground camshaft.

Everything I can think of for the engine to go back together (and run) is in my shop.

How should I put the new cam (timing) gear on, though?

The most likely way is to protect the camshaft with copious cardboard and hold it stationary in the vise.. but that scares me a little. I don't want to mess this up.

I make leather vise jaws out of old tops of boots with ankle padding.

Always worked like a champ with wood work or other delicates....

CDD - I use the plastic inserts that hold the rounds separate in boxes of .357 ammo for soft jaw inserts. The plastic will crush to hold flat or round objects with good grip in the vise without damage to the work piece. This is a great thread ! THANKS - Stan

Ok, FINALLY got around to looking at it.

I'm kinda pissed. The pictures don't do it justice:





I don't think the bearing surfaces are supposed to be gouged and pitted. Guess a phone call is in order..

The camshaft gear? It just slides on the end and a special nut holds it on. Torquing that nut is what worries me.. but this camshaft might not be the one that ends up in the engine.

My uncle has 2 similar books (although newer) that I will borrow again soon. I don't have any Model A literature.

Not to steal this thread but I'm in a similar situation my grandfather bought a 1917 Ford Couplet back in the 40's. Never saw it until my Mom pulled it out of a storage garage (that was condemned) in the mid 80's. Car is currently sitting in dry storage in a building on her property. She says I can have it if I can store it somewhere.







Hopefully over the next couple of years I can clean my small garage of motorcycles and get this car in there.

Good luck on your resto,

SP

I recommend a bigger garage.

...wow CDD, didn;t know you had it in you. Very nice. There's been a few A's and T's in our family over the years. Alway loved the A's. Glad your keeping it stock.
