Re: Merc manifold bore spacing and size

Yep! Those three are "side inlet" while the rest (that I can see) look to be "front inlet"; not absolute, but a good initial diagnostic.

The differnce in the ait cleaner mounting flange size is...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

A separate Air Compressor room is really a good idea. I had a friend who had one in his garage, and had a large pipe on the inlet port that went through the wall and terminated in a 90 degree upward...

Re: 1937? K Model Lincoln in Junk Yard

I'll bet the reason it is still in the junkyard is that they are asking an astronomical price. "NewC" had a post on here recently about a bunch of flatheads available in a scrap yard in Oregon. The...

Re: 1949 Merc. Water Pumps

Running them on what? I believe the wide belt Mercury pumps are the least used of any on the 8BA series (they are not reproduced). They would only be practical on a concourse correct restoration.

Re: timing a 51 EAB flathead

"EAB" heads are '52-'53 Ford (the best stock heads). From what I can find out, the ECG carburetor is a Holley 2110 from a '55-'56 era "Y"-block engine. Given this, and the head markings, your engine...

Re: timing a 51 EAB flathead

If the engine is totally stock, disconnect and plug the vacuum line to the distributor. Then start the engine and let it settle into a steady idle. Connect the timing light, and make sure the "bump"...

Re: Flathead won't idle

While you're looking at the distributor, check and see if it has a vacuum can on it with a vacuum line going to a port on the manifold.

Just so you know, the "9Super7" carburetor has a spotty...

Re: Flathead won't idle

You said you replaced the carb. What did you replace it with? Another 97, a Holley 94, or maybe even a Speedway "9Super7". It would help to know, Also, more information on the distributor would help;...

Re: lost my best friend today

I am very sorry to hear this, Stan. I can understand what you are going through, as I lost my companion of 38 years three years ago. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her.

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

Not when it comes to English grammar. There are some areas in our lives where the absolute still reigns.

Re: Another Led tail light question

Those ARE awfully bright, but they appear mostly white to me (maybe it's just the camera). Perhaps the red ones may be worth trying.

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

You're point is well taken, but I have a REAL problem when obvious erroneous information is presented as being correct.

Re: I need a V8 in my life

Uhh, Tinker; eight and two make ten. Every Zephyr I have seen has twelve cylinders.

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

Obviously, the one with the 4" crank. Ford cranks are everywhere.

Then I'd bore it .125" over.:D

Re: Flathead won't idle

When you say you are "only running off the primary", what exactly do you mean? Did you actually block them off, or just disconnect them. Since we don't know much about the end carbs, I think the best...

Re: fun

Where are the guys who always make thumbnails full-size? Surely, they can shrink these.

Re: Send generator off for a rebuild or just rebrush it myself?

It may not be exactly the same, but I replaced the bushings and brushes on the starter for my '51. I had scored new bushings and brushes for penny's on the dollar from Rock Auto on closeout. It was...

Re: What does this engine stamp mean?

I would expect that it is stamp applied by a former rebuilder, who is probably the only one that could decipher it, and they are probably long gone.

As a former Corvette "matching numbers geek", I...

Re: 1941 pu 4 cyl.

If those 4 cylinder engines were like 8N's or Jeeps engines, they were 134.5 ci and 34 HP, weren't they?

Sounds they were seriously underpowered.
