    In april last year I come in contact with Jim Berkner, who instructed me how to do this operation. With an electric hand grinder I removed some metal from the inside of the case where the ring gears goes.


    Last photo. Here is the unit assembled and you can see the space between the house and the ring gear.

    Last summer I was on a rally on the west coast of Norway (where the Fjords are). A trip over the mountain of 500 km. (320 miles) I could very simple follow the regular traffic.


    Sorry wrong photo!


    Very nice work with that hand grinder, Oivind!


    My winter project. Get the mechanics and paint ready for 2011 touring. Six new tires, paint 6 wire wheels, valve adjustment, tune up and making the 1929 coupe shine. This 40 year old paint is getting a much needed polishing. The paint was never wet sanded or buffed… until now. (My 30 Model C wheel is in the spare just to check fit of the 650/19’s in the wells before I order a set for this car.) More later, Karl


    My experience with the High Speed Rear Axle is in fact that my Pierce is using about 15% less gasoline. 320 miles test last summer as to the same trip in 2006.

    A problem is when I am driving at a speed of 80 km/h (50 miles) the odometer is showing about 60 km/h (37.5 miles). Many of you must have had the same problem. Have anybody the solution?


    Another Winter project for the 1703; assist straps. A local guy scanned the pattern from my originals and stitched them up with a computerized machine. I had the edges of both the fronts and backs marrowed (that’s the overstitching around jacket patches)and hand sewed them together. He will do more, if anyone wants them, as he is keeping the software on file.


    Those are just like my 1933. How much for a pair? thanks Doug Vogel
