installing rubber balls in Durant transmission

I have read somewhere, maybe on this forum, about how to install the rubber ball joints between the clutch throwout and the gearbox on Durant cars approx 1928. If anyone can throw some light on this source of information it would be much appreciated.

Hi
Thanks for the emails 2 of you sent to me. If I was wearing my thinking cap and my patience pants I would have see the technical document on this in the Technical pages of the Durant website.

Oh well!!

Duncan, Over the years I've seen many ways of rebuilding the coupler between the trans and engine. My own experience ( and I've rebuilt three of these ) is to use two hose clamps coupled together which have a big enough inside diameter to fit around the hub, and the wedges assembled with the rubber balls. You can use both of the clamps to evenly tighten the assembly to a diameter which will drop partially into the housing. Then use the handle of a hammer to gently tap the assembly the rest of the way home. Then you can use the clamps for whatever else. Curt
