Thanks, Outlaw. They are taking a time out and, from what I understand, will have subscription details worked out and posted soon.

Re: Modern day cosmoline

CRC also makes two other products. SP-350 & 400. I've used the SP 400 and it's incredible. Forms a thick, tough film over parts and protects it for years.

Howdy All:

I know this forum is dedicated to "stockers", but I hope to believe even the most strict stocker can appreciate a hopped up flathead banger, six or V8.

Re: FH Valve Springs

Interesting how the stock v. LZ @ 2.125" is a 10 lb difference, yet at 2.00", the difference is 22 lbs.

Re: spark plugs 59ab

Do what you want, but I wouldn't use Champions. Quality is way down from their glory days.

Re: Motor City Flathead Oil Pump

Is Kirby still in business? I know he was working through Shadow Rods, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Do you have any current contact info for him or his operation?

Thanks,

Re: .100 or .125 bore without sonic testing the block? How Safe?

My engine (a 59L block) is at 3 3/8th + .030". According to the builder (Ronnie Roadster), the bores still have plenty of meat left; even at this large bore size.

Maybe I got lucky, but...

A few suggestions: If you must use it, send it to Pete or Delta cams to get the journals built up and resized.

Or, I think Tilden Technologies has an "improved" EAB cam they make or regrind. ...

Re: 32 stock tudor shortened pitman arm

I have a ‘32 frame under my AV8. I also have a lot of different pitman arms. Give me a few days to sort them out. Maybe there is a solution in Henry’s parts pile. You can add a ball stud to the...

Re: Roy Nacewicz's business, and it's future

Is there black cadmium plating? All of the bolts I've ever bought from Roy were a satin black color.

Re: 1934 v8

Right. I was assuming he put in a high volume pump in during the rebuild. I could be confusing it with comments made by other posters.

Re: 1934 v8

I'm assuming you have an aftermarket oil pressure gauge hooked up. 70lbs @ 40 mph sounds a tad high. To confirm, no leaks or issues at idle, correct?

Does a '34 oil pump have a relief...

Re: Nut and bolt gauge for Early Ford

I have a really useful thread pitch and bolt size in SAE & metric and pipe. I'll snap a picture of it and post it later. I forgot where I got it, but I use it at least once or twice a week.

Re: How would you fix severly pitted crossmember metal?

I know it's pricey, but Belzona 1212 or 1111 is the way to go for epoxies.

Honestly, those pits aren't the worst I've seen. Snag with a front X member is is can be seen to some degree.

Re: +003 Timing Gear

Seems odd that this even exists. So the crank gear is worn so you put on a larger cam gear?

Thatís what we did, just trimmed it to fit. There is enough meat to dril a new hole. What welding a new flange does though is allow you reposition the flange so it fits properly (angle...
