Re: Split Lock Washers On Main Bearing Caps Of Flathead Motor

That's the way they came from the factory. The 2 bolts with washers are slightly longer than the front one.

Re: Overheating Flathead

Any sign of water under the engine when parked? Remove the exhaust manifolds, run the engine, watch for water.

Re: 8ABA engine distributor?

I don't plan on changing. Too set in my ways. (Just old I guess).

Re: Fuel pump pushrod length

I'm pretty sure the Slingshot would take the 8 7/8" long rod from the 59 or earlier engines. You press an early pushrod bushing in the 8BA bushing because the early pushrod is smaller in diameter. Or...

Re: Isky cam

I install an adjustable lifter and adjust it so the valve does not seat. Easy to indicate off the top of the valve. Also, the bigger the degree wheel, the easier to read.

Re: New Carb Question

I use Charlie's distributors exclusively. As i understand, he is buying Jim's stock of parts for his use. His are the best.

Re: Isky cam

I did. I have a spare block on my workbench that I use to check all my cams on. I do a complete plot of both the intake and exhaust lobes.

Re: Isky cam

I found timing specs in the Tilden website. It appears to be properly ground and the cam journals are in spec.

Isky cam

Had a customer bring in an Isky Max 1 for his engine. Opened the box and no timing tag. I suppose they want you to trust that the cam is ground correctly.:):)

Re: Stock or later oil pump?

Pressure is dependent on the clearances in your engine.

Re: Flathead Carb

Instead, why not get like a 450 cfm Holley. Cheaper and will still work just fine.
