Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

On a more somber note, I was created by WWII. My dad was to old to be drafted and met my mom, in a motor pool, going to the Long beach, ship yards.

In my moms later years, she married a man, that...

Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

Well, I'm glad to hear the the Navy, at least gave there guys choices. I was drafted, into the Army, 3 days before my 21st Bday, in 1965.

I can't remember getting any choices on anything :(

Re: The forgotten 1960 Fords

Those pictures show "Business as Usual". Scrapers only care about the price of steel per ton.

In the sixty's, I was a mechanic in Orange Co. Not only that but, it was the time that I owned MY '60...

Re: Replacing rings on 1 piston on 8ba

A broken piston, might make more since than a broken ring.

We will all be interested in what you find.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Pete, I hate to disagree with you and maybe I should have said EMC type of testing.

Race cars work in a limited rpm range, usually 1500 to 2500 rpm. Are you trying to tell me a engine that has a...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Racing has very limited, comparison value. Weight and chassis set up has more valve, in racing.

In road or oval racing, it is how fast you get out of a corner (both weight and chassis set up),...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Unfortunately, the only way that we can get answers is, with a dyno and then compare one build, against another, on the same dyno, to see where the last bit of HP comes from.

Dynamometers are the...

Re: Replacing rings on 1 piston on 8ba

I agree with your solution but, I would have tried to isolate the "odd lower end noise" before pulling it out.

Did the oil pressure drop, at all, after the puffing started? The other thing that...

Re: how many cfm for two carb flathead??

I'm not sure what your getting at but, FH's are somewhat limited to 5500 rpm and by today's standard, they are small V8's.

The 94 carb is more like 125 cfm so, if you were to build a 276 CI engine...

Oh, one other thing, did the ignition timing vary much between the 150 and 200 hp versions?

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Thank you, very much, Ted. Are those dyno results posted somewhere on your web site?

If not, could you give general specs for a 150 HP and a 200 hp build? Such as, cubic inch, approx C/R, cam and...

Re: 33 engine noise

Is the noise present, when the car isn't moving? If so, it eliminates any drive train issue and you can probably find it with a stethoscope.

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

Overall, I liked the movie but, the driving scenes, are down right "Hokey"!!

Re: Isky cam

Castrol R, I loved that stuff. I first got a whiff of it at the '59 Times Grand Prix, at Riverside.

Isn't that what we call a Blueprinted cam, today?

Re: Rhythmic smoke puffing out of oil input breather cap

I'm late to this but, here is my take on it.

Normally you will get that with a broken ring or broken ring land. It usually won't cure itself. Since yours has stopped doing once, my guess is that a...
