Jim, Jim, Jim sigh...what am I going to do with you, man? :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

If you don't have a parts book, you have access to them at the Ingersoll website. That's why I harp on members getting their hands on Op Manuals and Parts Manuals.

The parts manual holds the answer to your question. Now the easiest thing would be for me to just tell you but I see my job as that of a teacher. So, I'm pointing you in the direction of where enlightenment can be found. Go EAST, man.

Jim, I always like to put Lock Tight on those bolts. If the star washers are there they have probably lost their bite. In order for lock tight to work you will need to get the holes clean. My favorite for cleaning oil is starting fluid but carb or brake clean also work well. Gregg

It won't be in the manuals but be sure to check threads in oil pan to make sure they are not stripped. :trink:

I agree with Hydriv :thumbsup: Did it to mine awhile ago. Still good.

Jim, use the Heli-Coils, used and installed right, the threads will be stronger then the original tapped holes.

Nuttin' rong wit be-in a hilbilly. :crazy:

That's good to know that your guys would recommend Helicoils too, sorry I couldn't be of more help earlier.

Take some pics and share with us so we can see how it's done. :thumbsup:

laffin at the HELICOIL...exactly What the experts at work said...when i proposed some of the other stuff...they called me a hillbilly... :sidelaugh:

I am gonna do all 4 in helicoils...I got some new screws tonight... :winterrules:

Did you get new cone washers?

Not a bad plan at all Jim, you need to have at least one of these running at all times, and if the 73 needed rebuilt anyway, a borrowed part is not the end of the world even for the purists in our group.

You might want to take the opportunity to pressure wash that thing since you are pretty far torn down, now would be a great opportunity for that and will also give you a clean slate to watch for any fresh oil leaks in the system. Not to mention getting it dolled up for glamour shots. (centerfold anyone???)

As far as how much time in a weekend, usually it goes like this, the more "fun" you are having the faster the weekend disappears, but if you are working or otherwise dealing with an adversity, time will come to a standstill.

I have had some weekends fly by and some others take an eternity. Just don't have too much fun or it will be gone in the blink of an eye.
Too bad you can only drive one at a time, if there was a way to drive both simultaniously, I am sure you would figure it out.

You have set the bar high for yourself, I hope you can pull it off, I will be cheering for you!!!
Nice write up man. May I suggest one extra step when tapping new holes. When I tap holes, I make one complete clockwise rotation and then reverse the tap a half turn. Doing this breaks up the material in the tap and makes it a little easier to continue on in the hole. I also back the tap all the way out about half way in and then clean the tap off and blow the hole out before finishing the job. I have broke one too many taps in holes back in the day and you have no friggen idea how much of a PITA it can be get a broken tap out of a hole. Drilling them is practically uselss.

Oh and one more thing. I am glad you didnt decide to weld the holes solid and then redrill and tap.

I do...bigger torch, bigger hole, bigger tap, bigger bolt, bigger price tag. Whoever said bigger is better?
Nice work Jim, glad you got it fixed and ready to get back to work for you. Thanks for the write up and the pictures, VERY helpful stuff. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
WOO HOO!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Now don't you go wishing for another storm just so you can tweak your caster performance, I am still having nightmares about the last one. :lol: :lol:
yeah, I always hate finding "extra parts" that usually equates to "extra work" but we could all use the practice assembling so you are just that much wiser for your trouble.
