Re: Priming engine with oil

Yep, that's what I've ever done. Just stick a funnel in there and let a quart or two slowly percolate down in there. Others have use a small drill pump. Jack E/NJ

Re: 21 stud cam installed in my 59AB

>>>They ruined my 21 stud block when they installed 2 new sleeves in 4 and 8, both leaked top and bottom.>>>


How's the 21 ruined? If the 24's not broke, don't try to fix it. Jack E/NJ

Re: Oil around spark plugs

Exchange the plugs with other cylinders to see if they get wet on those too. Then you'll know the plugs are leaky. Jack E/NJ

Re: oil in cylinder

So does that mean the plug broke off and banged around the cylinder? I think what we're getting at here is there perhaps a hole or crack thru the piston crown? Jack E/NJ

Re: Exhaust in coolant

Well, you could bypass the radiator altogether with a couple of Dorman radiator cap Tees and connect the outlets/inlets directly. Then use the highest pressure caps you dare to use. Jack E/NJ
