My Project Cars



Found 3 results

  1. The tires on my Plymouth P15 coupe are 6.70 15 bias ply . When the tires were installed they were spin balanced on the car . The result was a great ride with no balance problems . Recently I replaced front brake drums and rotated the tires. I now have unbalanced tires and steering wheel shake . As of this writing I have not found a doing on car spin balance in Bradenton or Tampa Florida . If you know of shop in this area please let me know. Should I try a bubble balance ? Can a bubble balance be used with the brake drum attached ? On P15 cars tire wheel and brake drum should be balanced together. I request your thoughts on wheel balance .
  2. I am trying to get rid of a terrible shake, shimmy, vibration whatever. I have purchased a new set of tires from that TN tire dealer and that has not helped my shimmy-shimmy shake at 35 MPH. The old tires were 35 years old and sat for a long time, so I figured that was the problem. We have balanced the tires off the car, on the car, with new road force equipment, still cannot get over 35 MPH. While we were doing the road force balancing we checked the link pins and tie rods. They seemed to be within tolerance. the drag link seems like it may be a little loose. I get about 1/4 to 3/8 inch movement at the front of the tire. So is the drag link adjustable or do I need to put a rebuild kit on it? I never rebuilt the drag link the first time I restored the car and it would go well beyond 35 MPH. Greg
  3. I have replaced everything in the front end of my 1949 Dodge B1B PU. Wheels are balanced and aligned. Runs smooth up to 60 then it starts to vibrate/wobble/shimmy. I am thinking of installing steering dampers. Does anybody ever drive these things above 60? Mine is running smooth and great up to that point. I know that a solid axle can have that problem. That was why Maurice Olley of GM came up with the independent front suspension in the 30's. He just couldn't really get rid of that wobble. Anybody else have that problem? If you used a steering damper, what brand and type did you get?
