Re: Replacing A connecting rod in place

If you have a crank that is .002 out of round you will end up with .004 clearance in the end. It will last for awhile but sooner or later you will have trouble.

Re: Replacing A connecting rod in place

Yes but how are you going to get the wrist pin out.
You will have to use the right under size rod.
How do you know if it fits the wrist pin right.

In the end it is always better to do things...

Re: .027" or .035"

The wider the gap the stronger the spark. But there is a point when it can no longer jump the gap. Pus it will take easies path just like we do. I say .032

Re: block crack

That crack goes all the way into the stud threads. I disagree with not fixing it. Yes the crack will not leak water in to the cylinders. But your stud will pull out some time. It will not hold the...

Re: Cos of A Restoration

time wise it is going to take at least a 1000 hours to do, if you really restore it. now add the parts. Buy one already done unless you just want to do it.

Re: Carb riser on stromberg 81 carb

Re: Valve Adjustment Needed?

When new there was no adjustment on the valves. They were set when new, they stayed that way until it needed a valve job.

Re: Stipe distributor cam

Along with the dwell the big difference is each high point on the cam is going to be the same. The other repo cams that I have checked are not. so you get the timing for each cylinder different.
