Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

Hey Gang, while we're at it . . . anybody happen to have a 1934 Roadster wiper motor . . . and in dire need! Drop me a PM if you have such a beast and are willing to part with it. Thanks!

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Obviously you're talking about 49-53 heads, BUT here is a fun fact (that actually makes sense if you know the details of the flathead design). The original 39-48 Edelbrock heads had cast chambers...

Re: Big Boys Heads

It is actually over the intake valve. I've not had the luxury of talking to the original designer, though Jerry Branch was pretty much one of the gurus of taking the factory KR design and making...

The better news is that if a 'Winter Project' happened to find a way to get going, I already have rough SolidWorks models to work from (though they are quite preliminary).

Re: Big Boys Heads

FlatCad Chambers: I designed the chambers and pistons to mimic the Harley KR flathead race engine. As a purpose built race flathead, it is the most advanced of any flathead design that I know -...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Are you talking about the guy that is working on a flathead block design? If so, I've communicated with him, but never met him. I'd love to see an aluminum block flathead that supports 3.5" bores,...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

RE: Prices . . . yes, it is completely different on the prices of Offy's versus Eddy's heads. It seems the Offy guys need to charge a lot more than in the past - probably to justify the production...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Thank you . . . they took a "team effort" to produce! Four of us were involved in this aspect of the FlatCad project. The good news is that I have all the SolidWorks 3D designs. ;)

Re: 34 pickup, finally back together but....

As I'm not sure what vintage flathead you're running - it may or may not have "soft plugs" in the oil pan rail (in the gasket mounting surface where the pan bolts up). If the engine has them, then...

Re: Big Boys Heads

It is possible to make your own heads (out of billet aluminum) - if you can produce 3D CAD models, can generate the toolpaths and have full CNC milling machine equipment.

You have to make them...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Personally, I do not like the shape of these and see no need for the "extra" amount of water. They are just big and bulky to me. I have a set of Tony Baron's heads - my version is designed for a...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Are you looking to buy or sell them? From the pictures, they don't look to have been excessively milled, didn't notice any broken fins. I'd say they are worth in the neighborhood of $350 - 400. ...

Re: T5 guys TKX

Oh Hell V8 Coopman . . . I only wish I was a mere fraction of what you spelled out as my 'MO' up above. :D

If a guy was good at scrounging up all the right parts from cheap sources, they might be...

Re: T5 guys TKX

I agree with most of what V8 Coopman had to say, except I think it isn't all that easy to build a close ratio T5 for under a grand - including the necessary S10 rear section. I don't think I could...

Re: water pump lubricant

I used to run that stuff about 45 years ago (when I ran stock pumps with bushings). My bet is that it didn't do a dang thing. The original 37-48 pumps had an oil-lite bronze bushing that received...

Re: 4 post lifts

Re: transmission question

Thanks! There would surely be issues in cars like a 34 Ford, the floorpans would have to be modified.

Too bad the thing is so dang big, square and ugly (just saying). I bet somebody could...

Re: T5 guys TKX

It will be a much improved transmission over a T5 NWC box. I've not seen one, but from reading the specs, it is probably more like the modern Magnum tranny, but smaller, lighter duty, etc..
