The blue packaged Nutley parts are not originals. They were repops made by REHco.

 
This is actually perfect. Use the repops and keep the originals.
 
And yes, I would just gather all of those vintage arms and send them off for some nice, modern "non-vintage" balancing and reconditioning. It really makes a difference. I use Alpha here in the US.

Hey guys...I'm starting a Vintage pin tab collection...all donations welcome! :D 

 

But seriously :crazy: 

I ain't none too computer literate, so, I will just relay the title of a thread I stumbled across while doing a Mura and Lenz search...

 

Look up a thread by Jairus called: Sheet metal drill arm balancing

 

There is a comment by Ron Hershman in post #6 about how Mura would use 2 different machines to balance their arms? One would use a larger drill, then a 2nd would fine tune the balance w/ a smaller bit?

 

BTW...how come I can't do a Copy and Paste? That's what I wanted to do, but??? (like I said I ain't too 'puter literate)

Tom, make that $500 & get titanium pin tabs with both clockwise & counterclockwise threads. Those, you'll never pull out! :laugh2:  :laugh2:

 

I think it's the board software that prevents "copy & paste." [It's not the board software.] I think it will work with PMs like it does email.  :good:

Hi Pablo...thanks :)

I been lurkin' some...but not posting much...

I'll take some of those pin tabs but only if they are in pristine / used condition...no marks on their heads! :dash2:

 

Yeah...Paul (English) ... don't mean to side-track your thread or nuthin'....but as I was searching, I recalled reading about youze guys wondering about the 2 different sized balancing divots.

 

I have one arm that has something similar...the balancing drill divots, except mine has a sheet metal hole that looks like it was spot faced, or like a miniature Forstner bit did it, and with a conventional drill divot of smaller dia. inside the flat bottom hole!? :wacko2:  I think it's a Mura arm? (maybe Lenz...that's what I was wondering about)  

 

Hey Bill...send me some of those "special" pin tabs will ya...for my "collection"... :laugh2:

Finally found the keys to the garage & cleared the dust off this thread :laugh2:

 

obtained a few more parts and some bodyshells for more cars than this thread hints at, so much more building in the near future for this race series!

 

A Lancer #881 wider Cooper Maserati

OS Talledega Torino  (although amazing looking could be a little narrow at around 2.75", certainly not nearer 3" )

 

The other Stock car bodies (MAC Cyclone, Dynamic Torino) are they 3" wide? Just so I can determine if the OS Torino is to be used for this series or not.

Plus a John Dilworth Ferrari 312P Berlinetta which raced in 1969 1:1 So should be Ok for this purpose or at least a close *what if* . Better shots to follow

A few bits and pieces are now in the design department including Dynamic metal angled spurs, Faas spurs , Associated rear rims and some other bits perfect for these cars .

 

A long wait but finally in a position to start with motor box bending practice :shok: :D  and some building..

 

 

** Must remember to get the armatures rebalanced & checked out !!!**
