Re: Engine Problem

Not really as the most common valve lash issue is TOO much of it.

Also, typical valve lash values for performance cams are about .015, so it is doubtful that it is just a bit too tight and...

Re: Engine Problem

What is also concerning is that it starts and idles just fine . . . which means the valves are not hitting the plugs.

Then you rev it up and the plugs get whacked and closed. If this is the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Depends "which" degrees you're all talking about. :D Crank versus cam . . .

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

I just read that you thought the oil was coming from the rear. Just to walk backwards a bit, the very first picture you showed was of the back of the transmission - with a column of gear oil...

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

Another option (though pricey) is to have the body stripped of all oils, etc and then e-Coated and epoxy primered (part of the process). This will coat everything extremely well and is a lasting...

01A-1106-A2 - 1940 Front Hub Needed

Hey Gang, working on a hydraulic brake conversion for my buddy's 32 Roadster. I need ONE front hub - the one he has was wrong (for his drum style). He already has the necessary brake drums . . ....

Re: ford aluminum heads

The only real con that I can think of is that aluminum heads tend to have increased corrosion and electrolysis issues over cast iron.

If you correctly maintain your cooling system it should not...

Re: flathead cam

Question: Did the cam come in an engine that had a crankshaft in it? Would love to know if it had a 180 degree (flat) crankshaft? There were some guys that did this (usually in dirt track cars) -...

Re: flathead cam

Keep in mind that Pete is talking about a custom made billet cam core - usually made out of AQ/BQ 8620 steel. The initial operation is to make a cam core (lobes, journals, etc) - but oversize in the...

Re: Accelerator foot rest

I love the spoon peddle and stock footrest setup in both 32 and 34 Fords. The spoon peddle (stock style linkage, not an aftermarket cable version) is by far the best setup I've used . . . especially...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

I've had Pete grind some 1007B profiles (and a lot of others) - he does extremely nice work. Also Kiwi Tony grinds a lot of cams and is highly respected on the Ford Barn world (though I don't know...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Bill has it correct - as this particular cam has the same exhaust lobe profile as the intake. There are other cams where the profiles are different and the split overlap method doesn't work - you...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

This would be my choice in cams . . . but there are plenty of ways to "skin this cat".

Re: Banjo pinion removal tool

This is exactly the way I do it - there is no load on the housing itself - which is the way you want to do it. Also, you're going to need a press anyway to get it back together (easily) - even with...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

The cam card clearly denotes what it SHOULD be - and that the checking clearance is 0. What he is probably going to find is that the cam does not match the card - which I've seen MANY times. If the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Or, if you have "adjustables", just back out the adjuster until you feel it tight against the valve (when the lifter is on the heel of the cam). Even if you go a bit too far, you've taken up the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

You should do it with zero lash - and use the .050 numbers (they tend to be more accurate). We have no idea as to how the opening ramps influence the timing - only way to figure it out is with the...

Re: Stuck engine

What year engine is it? I'd post some pictures for us to checkout. Usually there is a lot of disassembly and "cussing" needed to get one of these apart. The price isn't exactly a steal - maybe you...

Re: what a job, shuddering fixed and back to work.

Nice work! I wish I knew somebody around here that had the right size lathe and the associated tools to do this.

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

My guess is that you've over-filled the case. There will always be some oil coming through the ball-bearing, but that is more than I'd expect.
