Re: Carroll Shelby's '49 Race TC

Although there are likely a number of parts that were not on it when Carol Shelby raced it, certainly not radial tires, and I doubt the dry-sump or giant fuel pump that can be seen in the auction pics. What is interesting is the number of things that were left as is. No fancy telescopic shock absorb...

Re: Great old photo

I think there is just one production line shown, although there are a number of cars lined up upstairs. The cars behind the production line, the one in particular everyone seems to be trying to be near for the pic, appears to be a works racer, maybe. Definitely two tone, like cream and crackers, plu...

Re: Lack of readable info on adjusting front wheel bearings

Steve- I don't know how I missed that article in the resources section. Thank you. The number I was looking for was the 80 lbs torque down on the wheel nut, over that coned washer, for unmodified TC front wheel bearings. I did the brakes and wheel bearings first, and in the months since then the car...

Re: Replacing standard TC seats with bucket seats

David- Nice. I have seen this sort of sided/unsided seats, and have been considering doing something similar. I've also seen in various early specials/racers a type of seat similar to these in that the back is rounded, but the aluminum frame has what appears to be a removable/replaceable sort of pad...

Re: Replacing standard TC seats with bucket seats

I do recall Dirk's Shimano solution, now that I am reminded. Normans pics of his TD seats show exactly the problem with the TC wheel arch we have been discussing as a problem. My pic 3 from top shows how I was able to cheat a good 3-4 inches out of the wheel arch with the curved back seat bases, and...
