Re: Oil return line plugged?

Re: fuel pump removal?

I have never measured it, but the claim has been that it allows a pressure drop. It would sure be a big drop with the bushing out! I even plug the 59a blocks just for the heck of it.

Re: 6 Volt dim headlights

If you are not wanting to keep it 100% original, relays are a good option.

Re: ID help with this engine

Pencil test - could you rest a pencil on the block just above the timing cover without it falling off. Earlier blocks yes, later blocks no.

Best to do a pressure test to check for cracks. ...

Pressure drop is not an issue with the pressures, flow rates and distances we are dealing with.

Re: Reusing head bolts.

Someone would have to be over torqueing a flathead head bolt to get much stretch on it. But you never know what it has seen in the past.

Re: Cleaning the center bearing.
