Re: Media blast?

Steve:

I bought used Snap On hand held unit. I was skeptical that it would work, but I was surprised by the results.

Re: Media blast?

Good point. I was referring to "media" as the various sorts of material people use in blast cabinets.

Re: Media blast?

I don't think I read your original post properly. You are going to blast these parts off of the engine, right? If so, make sure you clean them afterward with soapy water and dry immediately. ...

Re: Media blast?

Any chance you have access to a soda blaster? I would not use media since it's very course and will get inside the motor causing havoc.

Re: how much is a v8 60 block worth

$0-100 bucks max. unless you know if it's good and the seller can prove it or will give you a money back guarantee.

Is it a tin sided block or cast?

Re: 8BA block cracked

I've been thinking about this and, by no means, is it meant to be a fail safe repair.

Re: At my age why do I bring these things home?

Would have been a shame to send that to scrap, so you did a good thing.

Re: 8BA block cracked

A known good block (one that is cleaned, pressure tested, and mag'd and this work can be proven) with a bore size at under .030", I would say between $750-$1000. Could be more now days.

Re: L-100 & 9" clutch

That's good to know, Charlie. Those 9"ers are super light even compared to a 10" clutch.

Re: L-100 & 9" clutch

Ron,

My friend and I just picked up 3, pumps in block 221 stud motors this weekend. If I recall, Paul's motor ran pretty strong for a small CI engine.

All the spiders need to work together. Either find the correct ones or you need to change the differential unit to match the replacement axle gearing.
