Re: Removing crank gear - engine in car

Leave a loose bolt in mounts.
The engine needs to come up fairly high .
It'll take a real puller to get the gear off, heat helps.

Do Not drive the new gear on. It'll beat up the babbitt.
I...

Re: Another Main Bearing Question......

What Brent said.

Cotters are cheap and should be replaced correctly.

Torque wrenches weren't used when these monsters were made. Snug up the fasteners to what spec you want and then turn a bit...

Re: Arching shoes

I just check the shoe and put it in the press if needed. Then once the friction material is mounted I sand them. Put a sheet of sand paper in the drum and wiggle away.

Re: coil overheating

Is the coil oil filled or epoxy ? Oil coils do not like to be tipped upside down. If it has an oil coil I'd recommend changing to epoxy.

Measure across coil terminals, should be 3 ohms for a 12v....

Re: Muffler Question

I don't think so, but, you might try loosening it bit and giving it a wiggle, then retighten to see if that helps.

Re: Clutch Disc Exploded!

Thats a lot of work because of a bad part. I too would only use the caged spring disk.

I stopped buying from Macs decades ago.

Re: shock talk

Shocks help, good shocks really help.

I don't have an issue with dog bones, they are easy

Standard links may be more original, but can make you say some naughty words.

As for new shocks I...

Re: Size square on banjo

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

The wireless 'modern' upper plate is troublesome. They are fine if a wire is added.
Check for voltage to the open point arm, should about 6v.
Check for voltage when the points are closed, should be...

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

I asked this to help without having to remove front cover again. Tooth mis-alignment will affect compression.

70# is high. I think too high for a stock engine/cylinder head.

Is there a chance...

Re: Parasitic Drain?

Well, Nu-Rex is right. But I think that amount is a bit high, but, regardless they draw.

As mentioned, a good shut-off in a convenient location is a good thing.

Re: Engine

A tour engine usually has a higher compression head and a regrind cam [ or new kinds 3/4 grind]

Rebuilding would probably depend on where you are.

Re: Clutch Disk Chatter

Re: Crankshaft end-play

Remember the old Pennzoil commercials ? I think that may be what he is referring to. Liquid ball bearings.
