Tire, Bearing, Brakes?
Sorry for the cross post, I also posted in the Suspension, Wheel Brakes section.
I had given up on my project, and bought a runner (Yippee!).
She is a 78 Spider, and she seems to be running fine, except I get an intermittent shake from the right front wheel. It seems to be speed related, as the frequency of the shake varies with speed.
The tires are new, but this was a bit of a garage dweller, as the previous owners was a busy doctor with a Porsche sharing the garage. However, if this was a bad tire, wouldn't it shake all the time?
Could it be a bearing? It is intermittent. Wouldn't a bad bearing be continuous as well?
I haven't had the wheel off yet, but could it be something loose in the brake caliper? It 's pulling left, but not drastically.
Am I missing something?
Any help would be appreciated. I am a novice wrench, hoping to graduate from checkbook mechanic.
