Re: Snyder’s 6:1 head

Over torqueing the studs will crush the gasket in the area near the stud, thus distorting the block and causing another blown gasket!

Re: Snyder’s 6:1 head

A basic rule is to never assume anything. Measure it! After the first gasket blew your troubleshooting should have included a trip to a machine shop to have the head checked with a machinist's...

Re: Broken Tap Solution

There are special broken tap extractors made for this. They work unless the broken tap is really jammed in. Try blowing out any chips with air, then use a flat punch to hit the end of the tap to...

Re: arbor shim size for pinion shaft

There should not be any "fits and starts", "clank, clank, clank", or "rumble" in a tapered roller bearing! If these are new bearings, could they be mis-matched (that is, the wrong cup or cone for...

Re: H&H Model A motor thrust bearing issue

What's wrong with putting the trans in neutral and taking your foot off the clutch at stoplights? This way you're not wearing out the thrust bearing, nor the throw out bearing, nor the pilot...

Re: Ford's Cadmium Plating process

Or it could have been a case of counterfeit bolts (some supplier selling Kenworth cheap bolts with a name brand stamped in the heads).

Re: "Angle Milling" heads

You're right tubman. How easily we get sidetracked! Even some of us old guys are falling victim to the microscopic attention spans so common today!

Thanks for the reminder, JWL. I was about to ask what procedure to use. I got your book several years ago, but totally forgot you covered angle milling. I imagine you get tired of being asked the...

Re: Flywheel housing

It's a magnetic base dial indicator. You can flag down the next tool truck (Mac, Cornwell, etc.) you see, or find a tool supply store. As a last resort look on the internet.

Re: axle key

If the axle nuts were kept tight throughout the car's existence, the original keys will last indefinitely as they are merely going along for the ride. The taper of the hub and axle shaft is what...

Re: "Angle Milling" heads

Maybe he should have said "thrown off the rods", rather than 'splash', to be technically correct. But oil flung off the crankshaft is what lubes the cam and lifters.

Re: .100 or .125 bore without sonic testing the block? How Safe?

A caution on ebay sonic testers! There is a caution on some ads: "cannot measure cast iron due to its big crystalloid composition". This is on item # 202561250938, which appears identical to many...

Re: 56 Thunderbird distributor

Well, guess I'm living way in the past, but I wasn't really thinking of T-bird specific numbers as being necessary. After all, '57 & up parts on a '56 wouldn't be kosher anyway. Any Y-block...

Re: T engine hooked to other tranny?

That 4 cyl. was actually the 9N tractor engine. It was sort of half a 239 flathead V8, using the same pistons, valve assemblies, lifters and a V8 60 starter.
It was like having the whole pickup...

Re: Need help ID on 32 V8 21 stud

Weren't a lot of original early '32 blocks replaced almost immediately under warranty? Did the factory replacement blocks have the angled drain plugs, or the vertical ones?

Re: Flathead prices back in the day

Didn't say 'flathead' rebuilt. Today's equivalent to a flathead then would be a 302 Ford, which you can find for around 1200.
