Re: Remove inner oil pan

Guten Abend Jim,
here at this point I have to enjoy myself. When I had the tub solved yesterday, I saw some rough areas (like rice) below. I soldered them hard today!

Re: Cracked Block

Attached is a photo of the cleaned weld. It is easy to see that only short distances were welded.

Unfortunately, welding beads have jumped to the rioght valve spring. They can be abraded, but the...

Re: Remove inner oil pan

I did it similar to PalAl. That worked well, thanks for the hint!

Again, it is easy to see how clean the interior of a motor is, if it is lubricated with HD oil SC. Minimal hardly any residues in...

The beginning and end of the fracture was stop-drilled with 1/12" diameter of an inch deep into the water channel. The course of the fracture line was milled 1/4" deep and 1/3" wide a V-seam.

Re: Rotella T4 oil, dirty oil

Kimlinhn ha described it exactly and correctly. Oil always gets dark because it gets residues from combustion in the cylinder. Every combustion that does not run 1: >1 stoichiometry produces a lot of...

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

The contamination of the oil by foreign dust etc. is trapped by the filter.

But this has little influence on the color of the oil. Oil gets darker due to the soot from the combustion entering...

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

Thanks at all for the filter-idea and the many hints! I have chosen now the pressure oil version 'Bratton's oil-filter-kit'.

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

I think I can restore the clutch cage by myself. The pressure plate I can extern turn off at 1/128 ". I can round off the scoring finger levers myself. I have the finger-gauge and a...

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

J. Franklin,

does this only affect the length of the return pipe? Shortening or extending the tube is really no problem.

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

Russ, what you say is right. But I have to look at it from the other side of the globe. When I buy a restored pressure plate in the USA, I have to return the old one. Overall, the cost of duty + 2 X...

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

Probably I have misunderstood something: The hardest of the 5 different pressure springs has a length of 2.3 inches. When I press these together on 1 9/16" like described above, I measure a pressure...

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

Good morning,
it is hardly possible to remove the rubber flutter valve. But I have just read that there are filter cartridges without a valve. Care must be taken when shopping.

Re: Oil Filter Model A on timing cover

Has anyone also checked whether the filter is actually flowed through? (Slicing and dirt inspect after 2000 Miles.)

I doubt the open oil-pressureless system because the backflush valve in the...

Re: Must replace timing gear

There are two different sealing rings for the pulley. Teflon worm and "modern" like a soft shaft seal simmering.

Who has experience with the one-piece "modern" ring?
