Re: For those with machining experience. Sleeve fitting??

I've just went through this with two blocks. I've tried a number of strategies.

Before anything, soak the studs in some type of rust buster a few times a day for as long as you can.

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

Tony:

With your method, the guide is acting as a pilot for cutting the seat?

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

I never thought about the valve not hitting true center unless the guide is set. Makes sense now. Curious how you find that dimension before locking the guide into place.

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

Interesting, Pete. So I guess this may be an obvious question, but I'd assume you don't need to use a insert if the entire guide is made from bronze.

Do you knurl the valve opening/hole in the...

Re: Cool Clayborne Engine Stand

I'm thinking the hoop should be simple (a cut piece of correct diameter pipe) and then weld rings around the outside. Do those slots in the ring do anything like lock it in place?

I'll need to...

Re: Cool Clayborne Engine Stand

Do you think there is enough of a market to remake or repop these? Seems like the basic frame is steel stock and the mounts and receivers are cast.

With CNC, I don't see it being that...

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

This is interesting. What causes them to get "locked in" from use? Is it the carbon and other misc gunk? There have been some that need a real BFH to break them free.

What are you race...

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

I thought the same thing, Pete. Seems to me the crown will wear down and eventually open up the lash.

Re: Flathead Lifter Adjusting - "On the Bench"

I'm curious about this as well. Why would a crown be needed to make contact with the bottom of the valve stem?

I have original Johnson's refurbished by the later Ron Furtado and a few sets by...

Look around. This style, while very practical and great for a family, is not the most desirable body style. Prices have come done a bit for cars like this.

My advice, shop around and have...

Re: Extremely Frustrating Change in Fuel Consumption

If this is new problem, have you checked the ignition system? Possibly a bad condenser?

Have you also checked that the air cleaner isn't clogged up?

Re: Brake light pressure switch

Are they somewhat universal? I found some NOS Raybestos ones at a swap and picked them up since they are good 'ol USA. Thread pitch is the same for the end of the master.

Re: Isky cam

Read the description for the "track sneaker" cam.

For the respectable stock car racer who wants to cheat just a little.

LOL! This made my morning.

Re: Isky cam

Is it possible the last digit is worn or missing? I believe I recalled some grind number with 1014, 1016, etc. I’m curious what Isky says once they get it.

Pete,

It's your car, put I wouldn't do it. Less is more in my opinion. Especially on a roadster.

Re: Transmission problem on 41 ford car

Sounds to me like the snychro went to far forward (or would it be aft for 3rd???) and the blocks & balls popped out locking up the trans. Just a guess. You'll need to take it out or take of the...

Greg is great. Depending where the OP's is located, Andy Kohler in Williamsport, PA can do it as well.

Re: 32 axle bent twist ?

Not at all. That’s what we did. We used heat to get it hot before bending back into place.
