Re: B head sample.

Tod, I noticed in a past thread that you have a Mazak in your shop. Just wondering if you use it to make this B head?

Re: How to check a Model B Cam?

Yesterday I posted my measurements, but it may be just a little under. Could you take a look and tell me if it would be a waist of time to bother with that cam?

Thanks

How to check a Model B Cam?

Last year I picked up a Model B engine. It was all cracked but I did save this camshaft and tappets. Still have the intake and carb too.

Where do I measure to see if the cam is not worn out?

John, my points are lasting about 200 miles. I'm using NOS model B point sets.

I will try a condenser, and look at my ground connection as Ryan suggests.

The only reason I didn't consider the...

Re: T-5 5 speed trans VS Mitchell overdrive

With some advice from Ken and Al, I just finished my F150 conversion.

I traded the BB for the one pictured.

Re: Ford 150 OD Transmission install in 31 Roadster

There's a place at the bottom where's it pretty thick, not at the lowest point though. I wanted the option to drain the oil in the future, so I used a 1/4-18 NPTF tap. Not sure if you can see in this...
