Re: Turbo Flat Head

I don't know if it is a 'Big Turbo', but they can be highly effective if the system is correctly designed, things are sized to meet the specifics of the engine and usage, etc..

Keep in mind,...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Hey Chris - have you done a compression check on it? I would surely do that just to be dang sure the valves and rings are seating. Once I've done that, I'd be wondering about the carb - especially...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

If you find gaskets from Cometic, make sure you follow their advice on surface finish and have the block lightly decked to match their recommendations. Also, "square deck" it and ensure the...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

Info: Cometic does make 21-Stud gaskets . . . is varying thicknesses. Here is a link to Jegs for a .040 gasket. One thing to note, MLS gaskets usually require a very fine RA surface finish - or...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

That would only work if you had really thick rod bearings - something that is probably not really available. Now, you could shoe-horn in a later crankshaft and offset grind the throws to exactly...

Re: caveat emptor

To me this is a case of the buyer better know what they're looking at . . . or bring an expert.

I've seen a few of these types of builds - where they are trying to make a new body look old (and...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

I only machine the decks to true/square them up side to side - to get equal compression heights. I never machine the decks to tune the squish.

You really need to determine what your actual...

Re: '32 Roadster Rumble Seat Frame Mounting???

I can see how folks do not like losing all the trunk space that the rumble seat takes up, but I'm glad I kept it in my 32 Cabriolet.

While it is not very 'utilitarian', I like the looks of it. ...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

I question whether grease shields are even necessary these days? You don't have them on almost any modern drum brake and the quality of the lip seals are very good. I don't believe there is any...

Re: Building a 255 from a 221 block, help needed.

The 49-53 pump has helical gears, has it's own pressure relief and will flow more oil than the earlier pumps. The 'standard volume' version is what most of us use in just about anything (other than...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

I'm helping a friend build his 32 Roadster and he ordered a set of the adapter plates from Richard about a month ago - and I tacked them onto his 40 backing plates. I'm sure Richard is still in...

Re: Building a 255 from a 221 block, help needed.

And plug the oil hole - as it is not needed with a crab dizzy. I'd also put the early cam/crank gears on it - so the thrust it toward the block and not toward the timing cover.

Re: Cam degreeing sanity check

Also, you need to check both the intake and the exhaust on the same cylinder - as the amount that the cam "is off" may not be the same (though it should be). I've seen plenty of cams where the...

Re: 59AB advice on "new" flathead

I think you're heading down the right approach - take it all apart, clean and inspect everything, check all your clearances. I'd clean the bores with Scotchbrite, make sure there isn't any rust on...
