Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

Hey 52 Allard - if you happen to find any documentation on the serial number of the Hilborn injectors - please post it. Would love to know what it was. :D

Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

One thing is for sure . . . while Sisler may have had good intentions, he knew just about enough to be dangerous when it comes to many of his plans. He somehow believes he will put a mechanical...

Re: Ignition Whack-A-Mole

You'll not be able to stop the "noise pollution" unless you change out the plug wires. You can't run copper-core wires and stereo equipment - you'll fight the noise issues forever.

On many...

Re: Cam clean-up?

No chance that I would run it "as is" - have it reground and know that the lobes are right and that you're putting a part in your engine that won't wear out . . . or wear things out that rub against...

Re: How to compute HP

I'd go for the 16/28 combination . . . as you really don't need the 15/29 combination - especially if you're not in a heavily loaded pickup.

Transmission gear selection in this case is really...

Re: Cam clean-up?

That is too much rust for my liking - as you'll have a lot of pitting on the lobes. Maybe have Pete1 regrind it for you . . . maybe even a bit more performance into it.

Re: fuel pump question

Make sure your rebuild kit has a diaphragm designed for modern fuels . . . the ones from "back in the day" don't last too long . . .

Re: fuel pump push rod

I've hung out with quite a few Kiwis and had a bunch of close mates from OZ . . . the lingo tends to stick as it is ingrained in one's brain over a few too many oilcans. LOL

Re: 59AB valve train questions

A good set of stock replacement spring should be fine . . . you're not putting in a big cam and the engine won't be turning high RPMs, so using a lighter spring will help your cam last longer (less...

Re: How to compute HP

And don't believe most of the 'Desktop Dynos' . . . while they may make you feel good, they typically greatly over-estimate the HP you'll potentially be achieving. Remember, flatheads are lower-rpm...

Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

For $400 . . . he should have taken him up on that deal! If so, maybe you'd still have an Ardun in the car. ;)

Re: Harmon Collins build thread ...

The Harman Collins firing order (on the cap) is mandatory! The reason is that you have a two-pole rotor, so the firing jumps form side to side as each coils fire.

This changes the plug wiring...

Re: Oil leak

Well, you've posted the source of your major amount of oil - the drilled oil galley plug. The gears get plenty of oil out of the front cam bearing as well as a 49-53 cam is drilled to provide...

Re: Machine shop recommendations in KC area?

If you don't find anybody locally, send it to Fowler Engines in Columbus, OH - they do all my machine work and really know what they're doing. If you go this route, I'd recommend that you buy your...

Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

I can tell from the letters that Sisler knew enough to be dangerous and Clem pretty much told him to "let us do it" and we'll do it right. Some of the dialog about chrome lifters and steel cams -...

Re: Oil leak

Re: 3 bolt to 2 bolt distributor adapter

The cam you have is a long-nose cam - it sticks out about 5/16 to 3/8" more than the later cam that was used in 59X engines with the 2-bolt style distributors. So, you can go to a 2-bolt...

Re: German H-block?

The rods looked like the early style rods - not nearly as much material around the top of the big end as later 91A, 21A or 29A rods. If it was mine and a 4" crank fit, then I'd put the later 49-53...

Re: fuel pump push rod

So - given the chart above you most likely have either a 7.872 length pushrod, or you decided to go to the 1" longer one - at 8.872. If your manifold has the low fuel-pump riser (which I believe it...
