Re: 35-36 Water Pump - Pulley Removal

The pulley itself is easy to break ... BE CAREFUL not to put pressure on the pulley rather than the water pump housing.

Do not put blocks or press plates under the pulley rim. The idea is to...

Re: advance curves

Re: 35 transmission

Keith, I believe you have come over to V8's from the Model A side with that great 3 window. There are a couple of things that you should be aware of when dealing with transmissions.

Re: Timing a B engine with A Distributor

Your timing is set at 19 degrees BTDC ... CRANKSHAFT degrees. On the distributor, that's 9 1/2 degrees advance since the crankshaft turns 2X the distributor.

The objective is to eliminate that 9...

Re: Ignition timing

Thank you, Phillip, for making my point on terminology.

Re: Ignition timing

Michael,

The "knowledgable answer" would include exactly what you've said.

Further, there is no guarantee that sending your distributor out for rebuilding will have it TIMED correctly. That...

Re: 37 ford transmission

Re: Sun machine power supply

Alan, last contact I had was for Dave, dcwager@gmail.com. Let us know if that email works.

He is in the Charlotte area and, I believe, worked directly for Sun as a tech.
