Re: Hershey experience

First time for me. So I'll give a bit of a summary of my experience. Drove down Tuesday from Ottawa, Canada (500 miles), and attended Wednesday starting at 7:00 until 4:00, and Thursday from about...

Re: Who sells frame bolts that look like rivets

They used bolts witt nuts to attach reinforcements to our bridge that crosses the Ottawa River between Ontario and Quebec. The bridge was originally built between 1898 and 1900 and was done so using...

Re: Who sells frame bolts that look like rivets

I would use carriage bolts and make the hole square using a file. I've done this many times, but not on anything as thick as a frame rail. Would be a pain, but also the most secure. Grade 8 carriage...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

I found this older article from Hod Rod on some "performance" intakes. It seems the Edelbrock slingshot performs very well.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Damn. Are they all like that if you want to retain the original generator mounting position? I believe the slingshot style works and might be better. Yes?

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Damn. It looks as though there is enough room for the generator. I need an intake that will still allow the stock generator to fit in the stock location. Why bother then with the stock generator...

Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

A Fenton 2x2 head has come up for sale locally. It is in good shape except two stripped threaded holes for the fuel pump assy. I've been looking for vintage heads and an intake but prices are crazy,...

Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

I wouldn't touch it for that price. Is the fuel pump mounting opening/surface blocked off? Seems like some kind of finned aftermarket aluminum piece.

What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

This just came up for sale locally, and I noticed the water outlets on the heads are at the rear. The P/Ns are listed as NB249-LEFT and 6289-RIGHT. Does anyone know more about these heads?

Re: What kind of air cleaner setup is this?

Yes, we seem to have established that, but what is all the "extra" stuff attached below the air cleaner? Here is a pic of a 51 Meteor, and doesn't look anything like the one for the Monarch. Can't...

Re: Sacrificial wire inside C69 Block?

That is crazy! I can see why some engines run hot. I'll check myself next time I'm there to see what might come out. Thanks for the tips.

Re: What kind of air cleaner setup is this?

I contacted the seller. He says the previous owner said the engine (254) came out of a 51 Mercury Monarch. I think he is correct as I found this pic. I would like to know more about that particular...

Re: Sacrificial wire inside C69 Block?

I asked him about that, but he told me that no one around here does that. Even though Ottawa has a million people, and is the fourth largest city in Canada, there are very few speed shops around, and...

Re: What kind of air cleaner setup is this?

I thought perhaps also it was a marine engine, but it seems for sure it was set up for some heavy-duty industrial application. Some close ups.

Re: Sacrificial wire inside C69 Block?

From what I could see it looks as though they did an excellent job of cleaning the block as I couldn't see or find any loose material.
