Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Is the opinion the duration is 248 vs 260 due to the .014" lash? It seems logical to me. In any case, is the deviation from 260 durationan issue responsible for the extreme static advance I see at...

Re: installing a front crossmember

I'd like to add the importance of the 6 rivets on the top of the frame. They must be low profile, or you will have a interference issue with the front fenders.

Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I'm back, and have no idea what I am supposed to make out of the numbers. Here they are. If you recall I have been reluctant to pull the heads, and it was suggested I degree the exhaust valve on...

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Exactly, that is why I am trying to avoid mounting directly on the end of the crank. I think ive got it figured out. I'm going to mount to the 4 bolts for the 39 -40 fan. I can turn the crank with...

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Kurt, the only one I could find at Speedway that fit a flathead was the Offenhauser one that had the crank hub part of the wheel. Flathead crank is about 1.310" What did you find?

Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

I've been shopping for a degree wheel to check my cam, but have not seen anything size wise to fit either the crankshaft, or the '40 fan bolt pattern. Any recommendations?

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I will do that flatjack9. I need to locate, or make, the degree wheel arrangement.
Thanks

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Your the winner! The simplest and most clearly articulated for my feeble mind, thanks.

I have not degreed the cam yet. Got a lot going right now and it may be awhile.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

About advancing the cam. The cam gear is a bolt on and will fit only one way. I would have to pull the cam and gear forward enough to clear the crank gear before I could retard the cam. All the...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Flatjack9, My light has no advance detection ability, so it can only work correctly or not work at all.

Brian, thanks for your patience. I will take your advice and try to degree the number one...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Bored&Stroked, Yes, it has 25* static advance and with RPM will hit 35* with the vacuum brake full on, bolt fully in. Keep in mind, the distributor thinks it is zero* at TDC, so I'm only getting 10*...

You guys are probably giving up on me, wouldn't blame you, but I still need some help.
I have set up a few different distributors, and I am sure my problem is not ignition. Engine runs and starts...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Thanks Bob. Seems a bit complex. Is there a discussion somewhere that explains the "why" of its construction? It looks like all attempts are made to eliminate any press fitting- ring gear to body,...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I don't think you could visibly tell through the plug hole whether both valves are open .030" or closed. Especially if they sit low in their seats. JMO

Re: Stewart Warner Parts Source?

If you can't find them they would be simple to make. It would be easy to make very original looking plated duplicates. Guess it just depends on how much time you have.

Re: Points car

I have always seen judging aimed to that end, not that I have anything worthy of being judged. If you enter a car you want judged, aren't they obligated to conduct the exam and detail deficiencies?

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

In post 41 I revise my observations of cylinder 6, for which Mart asked me to clarify "almost closed." Both valves are closed as best as I can tell. This must be the overlap that I really cant see....

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Mart, i think im seeing what you described as to the cam check. With number one at TDC both valves are closed. At that time, number 6 exhaust is almost closed. Any clockwise rotation closes the 6...
