Depth of Helicoil

When installing a helicoil in a block for a head stud how deep do you like to set the insert? Just below the surface of the block or set deeper?

Re: Double Nutting advice

When using heat on stubborn studs I aim to get as much heat into the stud as possible without heating the block/area around the stud. Then take a very wet cloth and cool the stud as quickly as...

Re: Copper head gasket or best Kevlar?

When using the spray type copper products on head gaskets I do three light coats and allow plenty of time between coats to let the solvents flash off making it very tacky.

Re: Weard leaks

While I'm not familiar with Bardahl I looked it up on line and found two products on their website that were for cooling systems. One was an anti rust (rust remover) and water pump lubricant. The...

Re: Terriable backfiring

The puller will help get the head off. They work pretty well. Once the head is all the way to the top of the head studs it will not be able to lift it any farther. You can then attach a engine lift...

Re: Timber bolts

Consider buying the shorter bolts, cut off the heads leaving an inch of the bolt on the head. Then cut the hex head off a standard bolt and weld the two together to make the correct length. Grind...

Re: Transmission

If changing the oil doesn't help and then pulling off the shift tower for a look see doesn't expose the trouble I would suspect that one of the three roller bearings has failed.

Re: Terriable backfiring

What I meant by changing the positions of the plugs was to take
#1 plug to #2 cylinder
#2 plug to #3 cylinder
#3 plug to #4 cylinder
#4 plug to #1 cylinder

Then see if shorting out the plugs...

Re: Terriable backfiring

Change the location of the plugs you have in the car and see if they have the same symptoms in different cylinders.

Re: Terriable backfiring

Check to make sure the spring on the moveable arm of the points is strong enough. It was mentioned in an earlier post. Hook a fingernail on it and pull it apart. It should give you a bit of a tussle....

Re: Oil Leaks front and rear of the oil pan

The oil pump is held in place by a spring under the oil pump that pushes against the oil pain. When the oil pan is removed the pump will usually drop free of the engine and stay in the oil pan as it...

Re: Rotor to dizzy body gap

After you set the body on and before you put the cap on see if there is any movement of the body if you twist it back and forth. Usually there is. I always put my bodies on and give them a twist...

Re: I'm assuming this is bad. How bad?

I would try the JB weld first. Clean it really well before making the repair.
I've found that JB weld takes quite a while to cure and tends to sag on vertical surfaces. What I like to do is mix up a...
