Hey guys, I recently received a handclutch knob I had ordered for my CA im redoing and as I thought the knob has a brass threaded insert. Welll, the handle on my handclutch has a knurled end on it not a threaded one that will fit the knob I ordered. Is there different end on these handles depending on years? (Mines a 53') I was just wondering if anyone out there had any input on this and if they could suggest where I could get the other type knob. Thanks for any help, Hoss

Guys, Thanks so much for the help. Boy I looked the knurled end over before posting this cause i thought it looked like maybe the old insert off of a knob but boy I sure didnt see any kinda of seam like where it would screw off but I will def.put the ol smoke wrench to her and heat it up good an see what happens. I guess when ya think about it 60 years of being screwed on the end it would definitely petrify and weld itself on there! I forget sometimes how old these ol jewels are!(L.O.L.) thanks again guys. Hoss

JMS, you say apply candle wax as it cools, that is a new one on me. What does that do?

Soaks in between the threads and loosens the parts. Used it countless times over many years- really good on manifold studs.

Try removing that knurled end- it may be screwed on......might need some oxy/acet heat, and apply candle wax as it cools, then try unscrewing. cuz the knurled part was part of the knob that got screwed on!

If you are lucky a lock pliers may, I say may, break it loose.

What you have left on the hand clutch lever is part of the old knob, it must be removed to get to the threaded part of the lever. You may have to use heat to get that off.
