Re: 32 sedan patch panels any good ones made?

So crazy these crap parts are still out there. I wonder if someone would contact guys Bobby Walden or Flop if they'd be interested in making some.

The metal work these two and many others guys...

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

It is a Regular. I have a new Slingshot that I was going to use, but it just looks out of place since it is so new. I need to figure out a way to “age” it.

At some point, I do plan to run a 4x2...

Re: oil pump

Number #3 can also be checked by taking motor out and removing flywheel/PP and clutch. Doesn’t need a total tear down to figure it out. It’s odd, not all cams have this and the new replacement...

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

I agree. Metric rings are the way to go. I was amazing how easily the motor can be turned over. I'll have to ask Ronnie to confirm the exact details, but originally Ross sent us the wrong-sized...

Re: Engine Made in the Stand

I'm pretty sure no. Same angle, but not the same exact plate. The starter plate in the picture is for a truck.

I do not think the stamped steel starter plate has the large dimple in the center...

Re: Help with a family issue

Thinking about it, Charlie, the bed and torque tube seem to complicate things. The floor of the bed is pretty close the torque tube. Not much space to mount something across the frame, but maybe...

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

I didn't get it from Pete, but I wish I had. I got it from Bill Jenks @ Moon about 15 years ago.

It took quite of bit of work to get it timed right. Ronnie had to redrill and plug...

Hi Dale:

Well, they are cool for sure.

We had two issues we had with them:

1) The water holes had to be enlarged. They were really small and would have acting like washers keeping...

Re: Stromberg 97 Carb Large Logo vs Small Logo

If I understand correctly, the small logo 97's were factory. Large logo were sold aftermarket by Stromberg.

Most guys like the large logo for the eye candy factor, but they are the same carb.

Re: Using 85 octane fuel

It's the alcohol levels that the turbo charged LS Chevy guys like about E85.

Re: Using 85 octane fuel

Right. Just full of more corn alcohol compared to regular 87 which has 10% or less. E85 can have as much as 51-83% alcohol.

I've never run across 85 regular gasoline. Interesting.

Not flathead related, but to your point of LS motors. My friend has a 6.2L from a junk yard that runs on E85. It has a cam change and some other cheap improvements, BUT it's got a massive turbo. ...

Re: Flathead domed pistons and 21A rods

Others would know for sure, Ronnie Roadster, etc., but they look like Ardun pistons to me. Take a look at the notches for hemi-type valves.
