Re: Pulley casting number

I was only able to confirm the TDC with the finger test. Finger in the plug hole and turn over the engine until it blows the finger out of the hole. Then line up the dot with the pointer. Cap on the...

Thank you, I appreciate your input, as I continue to look for an anomaly that might offer an explanation.

Pulley casting number

What application, Ford or Mercury, would this pulley, with the casting number B 16, be for?

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

From what I can tell, by putting the old pulley over the front of the new one, (shaft towards the engine) they appear to be the same.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

I know the only way to check to see if is has slipped or if there is a broken tooth, is to remove the timing cover.

Really, I have no problem or issues with the running/performance of the engine,...

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

I used to get Legendary Ford from a book store in the city (Denver), then they went digital and are now gone.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

The original block was cracked, so I found a new block and then rebuilt the engine myself. The engine came out of the car on 1/29/11 and went back in the car on 6/29/11. It currently has 8434 mile on...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

I had a chance to take the bolt and washer out of the pulley again and I agree, no slippage. With a mirror and flashlight, I was able to look up the slot in the pulley and see the end of the key.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Did they offer power steering on flathead 6 cylinder cars/trucks then? Interesting thought.

I am thinking that I might be able to pull the bolt and washer from the front of the crank again and...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Mart,

Since the motor turns clockwise (viewed from the front), and assuming the pulley slipped, this could account for the new location of the TDC location on the pulley.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

I was wondering if the crank, in a Y block had the same size end, since I know they offed powering steering in 54'. Could this be a pulley from a Y block?

RalphG,

I think you have the air cleaners that were used on the 52' Mercs.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

That is not a slot, it is piece broken out of the back of the pulley. There is a guy on e-bay that sells new three belt pulleys. The first photo is his. The second and third photos, are of the...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Unless a small piece is broken out of the pulley that goes over the key. These pulleys have a tendency to break. If you notice, the part of the pulley that goes over the key is thinner. That may work...

After checking with an old time flathead racer in the local club, he feels the pulley has slipped. It is on the key by only 1/4". The only way to confirm this would be to pull the front timing cover...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Ok folks, I have to admit putting a foreign object into the cylinder, of a perfectly good engine would have not been my first choice. But here it is. Bottom line, the new TDC, is still 1 1/2" off the...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Then it appears mine is correct, as to the pointer location. Definitely not as easy to get photos when mounted on the completed engine, in the car.

Thank you

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

You could use the cable tie method to see if the TDC marks align with actual TDC on the motor.

I did a video on it.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

That is my question precisely. Is there a difference ((diameter and TDC button (actually 2 degreed befor BTDC) on top)) between the Ford and Mercury pulleys?
