SOME TOOLS SPECIALIST AND HOME MADE

P1060272CROPP1060274cropI was lucky enough to borrow this brake riveting tool from my neighbour.  As luck would have it he was a garage man and very familiar with old cars.  With the tool clamped in a vice assemble a rivet and shoe and clamp. Position the hammer block and give it a smart tap.  Repeat for each rivet all done.  One rivet is not accessible  owing to the spring bosses.

This comes as a thin strip, similar to plasticine.  Placed on the bearing surface and then reassembled it squashes flat, you then compare it to the provided markers.  This gives the clearance in thousands of an inch.

A simple gauge to allow the backlash between the crown wheel and pinion to be measured.  It should be 1/16 ” at 7 inches from the centre line.
