Re: Push button Starter

I substituted in a "modern" ignition switch, one that has the ignition circuit and the spring return Starter postion, in the place of the Key Switch on the yellow wire in the above diagram. Just put...

Re: sump removal

I too have had the motor move forward. I blame the float a motor mounts because they are not as rigid as the stock mounts. I used a thin wall socket to get in there.

Re: Whistle sound from new timing gear

Dave is right that oil will come out of the timing pin hole if left open. Plenty of it. I proved this scientifically on a 30 mile drive.

Re: Whistle sound from new timing gear

I drill a 1/16" hole in the top of the plunger housing. Did you check the camshaft to crank gear clearance. Should be around .003-4

Re: Clutch Chatter & Flywheel run-out

I have the same thoughts as Bill W and a couple of others to try another clutch disc. I had a flywheel from a prominent machinist that was .022 off, that a local machinist was able to get milled down...

Re: Downdraft preference or Opinions?

I like the Holleys but they are more difficult to set up and tune. As Jim notes the main problem is the power valve. But they are nice once tuned in.

Re: Engine Ticking sound

I once had an engine with a tick and no matter what I did it would not go away until I got a new block and built a new engine. Check valve clearance. The real question is performance affected. l...

Re: Head Gasket for the 6:1 Iron head

I use the copper spray on the Best graphite gasket with a 7:1 head. Tighten to 60bls. It does seal well. I get the head off by loosening the head nuts a few turns and turn it over with the ignition...

Re: checking timing

Grind a little off the sides of the timing pin to make the point a bit sharper. Easier to drop into the marker hole. Similiar to using a philips screw driver as above.

Re: Timing with 6.0 Head

As you drive with the head you will start to learn how to use the spark advance. Not to much advance for cruising(say 25* for starters.). Full retard going down hills. A little less advance from...

Re: Bill Stipe Model "B" Cam - not fitting

It could just be an error. I bought a Stipe front pulley that did not fit, it had not been honed to size. Stipe was a stand up guy, said to return it, or have it honed locally and he would reimburse...

Re: Rear main seal options - which one?

A properly restored rear main will not leak more than the proverbial few drops. No need for an after market seal.

Re: Dual Carb Options for Miller Over Head

Bill: The 1 1/16" Holleys came out in 1955. Don't know how it would be on a Lincoln V12 but you find some strange things on old cars.

Re: Does this noise sound familiar to anyone?

I would go with vacuum. Good news is there are only a few places in an A for a vacuum leak. I would first check torque/tightness of the manifold and carb. Thats easy. Then try it without the fan belt.

Re: Adding a 4 blade instead of my 2 blade fan.

Not sure how you have your timing set up. If you have a stock FSI, total advance range is about 32 degrees. If you have adjusted the timing so that max advance is 21 degrees BTDC, the initial setting...

Re: Adding a 4 blade instead of my 2 blade fan.

Agree a fan not needed at highway speeds, it actually gets in the way and robs HP. Retarded timing will also cause an engine to run hot. Check how much advance you use. Maybe try a little more....

Re: Rebuilt B engine has no power dilema

Agree with 909. You can use the A distributor, but it has to be timed to the B cam, so needs a B timing cover with the B timing pin location. Check that the cam is aligned with the crank while you...

Re: Oil mist on left side of engine

Look at the center main bolt. Seepage there sometimes.
