Re: King pin kit

In the "old days" we tended to use what are called "king pin reamers" - pretty much everybody had them. They work okay - especially if they are new and designed to pickup both bushings. In...

Re: Columbia Vacuum Plate

If you have a low-vacuum situation, you can also put in a vacuum tank - with a one-way "flapper valve" - such that you store vacuum. This is the same principle that is used on many brake boosters.

Re: oil in cylinder

Are you running a late style 49-53 manifold that uses a PCV in place of the road-draft tube? The later system works bass-akwards from the earlier pre-49 system - lots of folks mix-match parts and...

Re: Flathead valve job question

Another option to tighten up the guides is to have them plated - typically it is a copper plate that is used to increase the diameter of the OD.

Obviously this means you either hone/ream the...

Re: oil in cylinder

Hmmmmm . . . if you have the typical 3-piece oil ring setup (2 rails and an expander), they can't go in backwards - there is no orientation. You didn't happen to check the compression before you...

Re: Tig Welding

All I know is that my butt would be puckering the first time I stepped down on my Miller pedal! I give you credit . . . and I imagine you started at low amps and worked your way up. Best of luck...

Re: Flathead valve job question

Given the amount of typical "slop" that I see with out-of-the-box guides, I do not use them for seat work. My machine shop made a custom mandrel that picks up the guide bore and has a very slight...

Re: 1936 LB marking

Beings we're talking about LB blocks - what is the current situation as far as finding bearings for them? Are there any current manufacturer's, or is it a situation of having to find NOS stuff? ...

Re: Spark Advance versus Overheat

Unless you need something custom and/or have original tanks and sheet metal that you want to reuse, I'd get a Walker or Brassworks radiator. I had my original 32 radiator re-cored, cost me $900 --...

Re: Spark Advance versus Overheat

My guess is that you could use more advance. I run a Vertex Magneto on my 284 cube engine and run about 24 degrees total advance. I'd move the advance up some more - and keep doing so until you...

Re: Stromberg BIG 97

The Holley 2110 first came out somewhere around 1957-58 . . . with a 3 bolt flange that matched the Stromberg/94 - but with larger throttle plates and a CFM rating of I believe about 210. I believe...

Re: oil pump question

The 8BA pump has helical gears and flows more volume than the earlier spur-cut gears. If the 8BA pump is good (bushings?) - I'd definitely use it. I only use 49-53 pumps in all my flatheads.

Re: Cam shaft profiling

Hey Bob - I'm kind of a camshaft nut. The basic way to understand the actual timing events (before/after TDC and BDC) is to install the cam in a block that has a crank and at least one rod/piston in...

Re: Cyl Heads-Navarro vs Edelbrock or Offenhauser

That can't be known unless you know the displacement of the engine (bore / stroke) as well as the piston to cylinder head clearance. :)
