Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

Re: rear axle nut torque

And if you need too . . . go BUY a bigger torque wrench - or borrow one. I have about a 36" Mac Tools torque wrench - bought it specifically so I could handle torque loads like this.

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

Give him an ultimatum -- deliver in a month or go to court. He needs to be shutdown with the way he's going about business or he'll just take the next guys 10,000.

Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

Hell - send it here to Ohio . . . can have Fowler Engines build it . . . and you'll be very happy with the results. Also, it won't cost you $10,000 to build one. PM me if interested.

Re: trying to reach Yankee Mike

I've dealt with him - didn't have a problem (this was last summer - looking for a 32 rear axle).

Re: Drop Axle Installation

In addition, the stock steering arms are now higher - which may cause a drag link or tie-rod clearance issue. (the issue you talk about up above)

I've not built a 36, but one solution might be to...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Good point - I forgot about the 'stretched' versions . . . kind of like a piece of carnival taffy. FWIW, I've never liked the stretched look - and the amount of stretch I see on some axles makes...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

I've had Okie Joe do my work for me. It is more than just heating and bending -- the axle needs to be magnafluxed and the correct camber set. Also, depending on the spindles and steering, you may...

Re: stromberg 97 metal fatigue?

What is worse is that somebody trusted JB Weld or something similar to not only fix the prior problem, but to also NOT LEAK and potentially cause a fire.

Now this is going to sound bad, but it is...

Re: valve question

I'm not a big fan of the split guides - due to the larger opportunity for movement/slop in the guide bore and around the stem - as well as side-to-side misalignment on the stems, etc.. I used to run...

Re: Which Cam

Well, the duration is the same for both 220 degrees at .050 -- the 77B only lifts about .325, while I believe the 248F lifts .350. When I sent to Schneider's site - they showed two different lift...

Re: 59A Flywheel Machining & Clutch refitting..

As almost all flywheels use a "shoulder bolt" - you probably have shoulder bolts where the shoulder section is too long. I would take the pressure plate back off and check the bolts and the holes...

Re: Distributor vacuum brake question

You want it to drag a bit - otherwise the timing can "flop around" a bit. I tighten it down until I just feel it start to drag.

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Yes - that is my general idea here . . . but this is bench racing, have not compared both blocks up close and personal (though I have both sitting in my shop).

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Yes - though the coolant passages in the head/block for 49-53 are such that the water volume is at the back . . . the 59X gaskets and heads are the same front and rear.

Anyway - more to...

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Note: One thing I would explore a bit more if I was doing this today is to rework the rear water passages on the 59X block to allow more water flow (like a 49-53 block) and I might even reduce the...
