Re: Flathead won't idle

When you say you are "only running off the primary", what exactly do you mean? Did you actually block them off, or just disconnect them. Since we don't know much about the end carbs, I think the best...

Re: fun

Where are the guys who always make thumbnails full-size? Surely, they can shrink these.

(Thanks for the one you did, Coop.)

Re: Send generator off for a rebuild or just rebrush it myself?

It may not be exactly the same, but I replaced the bushings and brushes on the starter for my '51. I had scored new bushings and brushes for penny's on the dollar from Rock Auto on closeout. It was...

Re: What does this engine stamp mean?

I would expect that it is stamp applied by a former rebuilder, who is probably the only one that could decipher it, and they are probably long gone.

As a former Corvette "matching numbers geek", I...

Re: 1941 pu 4 cyl.

If those 4 cylinder engines were like 8N's or Jeeps engines, they were 134.5 ci and 34 HP, weren't they?

Sounds they were seriously underpowered.

Re: 8CM high oil pressure?

Sounds like someone shimmed or stretched the relief spring.

I'd replace it.

Re: Early and late '32

And let's keep this discussion on this thread. No need to "clutter up" the "Murray Body Number" thread.

Re: 1932 Ford Deluxe 3W, Murray Body # informal registry, how many are still around?

I notice the poster is from France; wouldn't it make a big difference whether he is working on a car of US or foreign manufacture? I would think that should be the first thing we should know.

Re: 1949 Merc 8CM engine

I'm with the "take it apart first" crowd. There's a Merc crank in there, so I'd be extra careful.

Re: Merc manifold bore spacing and size

Notice that all of those carburetors have the fuel inlet on the front, not the side. That means they are most likely "B-O-P" carburetors, as the desirable Chevrolet carburetors have the fuel inlets...

Re: Reviving a proper six

I usually reboot the system when something like this happens; it fixes it most of the time.

Re: Engine Oil Drain PLug Flathead V8 1946-47-48 Engine

I think they were made that big to be able to drain the big chunks of sludge that accumulated in the engine from using non-detergent oil.

Re: Turbo Flat Head

You're right. I tried using a Quadrajet from of a 3.9 Liter Buick a couple of years ago because I happened to have a spare Sharp 4 BBL manifold and a variety of adapters. I couldn't get it to run...

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

WOW! I would have never thought of using 0W20 in a flathead, even a fresh one. If it worked for you, I might try it.

Re: 1953 Project
