Re: FWD Streamliner differentials


On the Treit streamliner build I have some questions to ask BEFORE I post his new front drive-steering system.

Having read thru this post, I better be prepared for I am certain that I will be quizzed.

I'll study before I take the test questions.

I only have fotos of the entire assembly in the shipping box. I do not have a breakdown or neither have I

asked any questions about the drive system. I do know that the concern that prompted this update related to

the ability to steer with a wheel speed of 6000 RPM. A lockup in the steering assembly because of the RPM

would be catastrophic.

Strike me down.....OK?

I couldn't wait. This was like Christmas in April when the box arrived.

Hold your questions. I have no answers for you but I do have these two fotos.

The splined stub shaft in the first foto points toward the engine. The change gears are at the extreme front of

the car.

The two views are just from the front and back of the assembly.

When I have more info or even fotos of the individual parts, I'll post them.

It will likely be several weeks before this assembly is taken to Hume's place and bolted into the chassis. I

know I'll be there for that.

Freud,

Looking good. Tell Marlo way to go.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

   I don't know if you have a picture of the Mark Williams drive axles Freud, but Marlo showed me a picture of what basically is a a male-female dragster coupler with a crown shape on the male coupler so that there can be misalignment. This allows the hub to have 5  deg. of steering. I guess it has to have a small mis-alignment when it is going straight so the two parts won't gall together.The Rembrandt of land speed cars.  They should be making a docudrama about this car and Marlo's life!!!!!!!!!

The only images that I have were posted in Reply #216.

Mark Williams sent those a while back. I may never get fotos that deep into the assembly unless

for some reason the entire drive is disassembled. I think there may be a set of drawings but I haven't seen them.

Ryan, I usually always get there on Wednesdays. I go to lunch in Mt Vernon, Wa and that is about 15 milss South of Humes place. Then I go

up there.

There is always progress but the part that is exciting now is the rebuild of the front steering mechanism. Marlo told me tonight that he

plans to replace the wheel studs with cap screws and so it will be a while before he takes it to Humes place. For him it's 290 miles each

way so he doesn't just shuttle back and forth too frequently. Les Davenport will be down again soon. He will fab the connection  between

the blowers and the manifolds. I think Marlo and Les will again coordinate their trips. It's one thing to discuss on the fone but something

totally better about eye to eye and right where the car is located.

This is OLD SCHOOL. My recent assignment is to produce "water transfer decals" for the project. It's a learning curve for me and I am

excited to see how many bubbles some people have under them when they make the application. 1955 revisited. That's about where I

hover in this day and age.

Fellows, THANK YOU for your interest.

FREUD

Well for the people that are smarter than I, there's plenty of you out there, I'll post the pictures that Marlo sent me today.

I have no comments. Glean whatever you can and after I have been briefed I will add comments. Marlo put the assembly on an engine

stand and tore into it.
