If it's a big spark that's an indication of a bad condenser, it should be a small spark.

Re: cracked cyl head

Any idea why the head cracked? Possible freeze crack? I would check the underside of the water jacket on the block, LH side for possible crack(s).

Re: Timing a B engine with A Distributor

I would remove #1 spark plug, bring #1 piston to TDC on compression stroke and set the points at just before starting to open, same as you would using the timing pin method. Simples.

Re: 1929 Hood Latches won't reach

Are you sure that's a factory photo? The starter push rod w/an offset looks odd, also the sleeve on the spark control rod.

Re: Transmission Issues

They would be from out of the pressure plate.

You need to replace the clutch ass'y, and possibly the release (throwout) bearing.
