Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

A peculiarity of 35-36 engines is that at high flow rates, the cylinder head mounted pumps tend to push coolant up and outta the overflow. Fitting thermostats in the top hoses can slow this down...

Re: 1934 V8 slipped timing gear

Yes, I once encountered that....now on all my builds I 'scotch key' the gear in place to prevent it happening. To fit a scotch key, drill and tap a hole somewhere around the seam where the two...

Re: Door Hinge repair

Good on you! A lot of work- needs to be done, and sounds like you've done it well. Satisfying isn't it? the final product...especially when you're putting your own 'energy' into it- not paying...

Re: Driveshaft spline wear

I think your idea is sound....you're lucky, normally it's the pinion end of the coupler and pinion splines that wear; a harder fix. Keep it all aligned when you weld it; set it up in a lathe .

Re: Options for rims for a 35

Yes, remove all the weights. Running tubeless? so easy to fit the beads in that case. Try 'em, you love 'em.

Re: Options for rims for a 35

Anyone had luck with the sand in wheeled?


Yes!, well dynabeads, I run them in my 35 with KH wires. The fun part is getting them into the tubes, but very worthwhile result. I drive my 35 fast and...

Re: 59a with Scat Set Up Your thoughts please.

I run flattop Ross pistons in one of my engines [with the appropriate heads]. I got them custom made by Ross. All standard Ross flattie pistons have their own specific dome with the .180 dome height.

Re: 59a with Scat Set Up Your thoughts please.

Are you sure it's sleeved? That is a C69A block, these things have thick walls. I've just built two of them with 3 5/16 + .030 " walls myself. Ultrasonic test showed .125" wall thickness left. Thing...

Re: Egge Pistons and Aluminum Heads

The above information is spot on except it need not be done on a CNC, could be done on a manually operated milling machine

Re: 59a with Scat Set Up Your thoughts please.

Take care with sealing up head gaskets; looks like a bit of damage to the deck top corner above #5
Flattop pistons-domed heads
Has it been balanced?

Re: 1935 or 36 Dash Waterfall Question

You can see the evolution from that style late 36 Deluxe to 37 and later models that used stainless trim strips

Re: 33 Harsh noise

I think Lawrie could be onto something with the 11A advance....try a 68 advance and see if it improves. A quick test without removing the distributor would be to retard the distributor from where...

Re: Preventing electrochemical corrosion alloy heads

The zinc anodes I make. Get some 1/2 dia zinc rod [I buy it from local marine shop], cut to suitable lengths. Cut a 1/4 pipe thread on one end. Get a brass 3/8 pipe plug, it'll have a recess inside...
