Re: Tireshop for '37 Ford wheels

For 25 years or more new tire machines have been built to hold the rim by the OD of the rear side, to accommodate newer styled wheels without damage. If the shops you contacted don't have them, they...

Re: Bolt remover socket

Chisels work too. A couple blows on a sharp cold chisel next to the corner, then use a blunt square ended chisel to continue without cutting the corner completely off. We be crude n'stuff, but...

Re: Big Boys Heads

I'm having a hard time seeing the shape of the chamber directly above the piston. It sort of looks domed, but not as domed as a stock chamber. Does anyone else see that, or does it look flat to you?

Re: Big Boys Heads

Just saw photos of these iron heads on FB, with chambers sort of like the KR chambers.

Re: head stud removal

The way I did it with the bushing in the head was almost that fast, definitely would be next time when I don't have to experiment and feel my way. I had no way to determine the exact center of the...

Re: head stud removal

I just did battle with the studs on a 36 LB block. The studs were crusty from sitting with the heads off and being roughly handled so I didn't care about saving them. I'm gunshy about heating any...

Re: Stuck block two questions

One more thing - Don't put any aluminum or other non-ferrous metals in the sodium hydroxide. The part will either be damaged or won't be there when you go back for it, plus it will crud up your...

Re: Stuck block two questions

I found the photo. I mixed some in the trash can with hot water from the water heater to try it out. Was a small heater, I ran out of hot water pretty quickly so it wasn't real hot. Dropped this pan...

Re: Stuck block two questions

Rods are cheap, last one I had to do I torched a few of the rods so I could get the crank out and concentrate on saving the block. I'll sell you a set of 221 rods for $50 if you need them.

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Most of the new parts sellers have them, they are currently made. I have a set I don't need now.

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Since Pete is here, what is the acceptable smallest diameter for cam journals to reuse? I checked the 3 I have, they range between 1.7955/1.797.


What do (or should) installed cam bearings...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Thanks for the knowledgeable recommendations! A quick search shows isky cams only for 42-up, would I have to give up the 3 bolt distributor and front plate?

L-100 cam in a 221

I've been forced to rethink the motor I've been building and will start over with a 36LB block with maybe .030 overbore and stock stroke. I'll be using stock 36 aluminum heads. I plan to optimize the...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

Not so far, that's why started this thread. I'm still hoping to find them, other wise I'm starting over with another block or modifying this one. If I have to modify it, I may as well make it...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

L-head - at .015 over you'd have to move the bore centers way too far up into the block to be useful afterward.


Brian, how much narrower are the later center mains? Milling that to size seems...
