Re: NEW starting problem

Coop thanks for the resume. No one was questioning your car credentials or whom you would only hang out with. Your a smart guy. I'm sure slamming this guy really is what every previous poster was...

Re: Reviving a proper six

I'm guessing you are looking to make a good solid motor. The split fenton exhaust manifolds or very rare, almost impossible and probably not worth any gains. Well you can split the exhaust if you can...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

David would know best. Being it's a momentary connection it might be okay unlike gauges. The pitch might be higher and it will add stress to the parts over time. I'm not sure about the internal parts...

Re: Head gasket question

Just a thought. The water travels through the block and heads at the openings made, the gasket, unless the holes in the gasket are smaller to restrict flow, won't do much. So it makes since....

Re: 59AB advice on "new" flathead

Less you are building a blown motor. You'll be fine without a rebuild from what I'm seeing. If you want to pre-pressure the oil (not sure how that's done on a low pressure flathead system, unlike a...

Re: Reviving a proper six

The flat six is a good engine. The later version the ohv 215/223 overhead was called the mileage maker to the flathead and yblock. Bullet proof dependable motors.

Cool Project.

Re: Interior heat

I have the safari front windows on my 36-38. It certainly moves some air. There is the cowl intake too. The later cars certainly had more space to be comfortable. But they removed the safari front...

Re: Interior heat

I had a 70's Cadillac with a climate control dial. It worked great!

I'm not sure I've ever had a car with 180 in the cab. Well I know I didn't, as I would be dead.

Maybe something is wrong,...

Re: Stromberg Big 97 on a stock manifold?

I think running a large 2 barrel single carb on a flathead is a great idea vs duals. It's an interesting idea outside a 4 barrel intake and that. To take it back on topic outside of what carb is on a...

Geez you don't know me. I drive my original 36 coupe ( I do have 39 brakes) to the tasty freeze with a flathead and 3sp. No t5. Also a mostly orginal 38 truck with a mitchell splitter so I can do 70...

Re: Help Iím Lost

How are your battery connections. Are they clean? Maybe add a ground cable from the frame to your motor. Dizzy grounds to the block as well as the plugs, completing the connection.

Re: Axle Key Installation

It's technically the 3rd sentence. But you agree how the axle key is installed. Whether is adds any bond or not. The taper is there for some reason and it's not to put the hubs on easier. Probably...

Re: Axle Key Installation

or running the taper up and outward. or just up. The tapered end is not so you can get the hub on easier in my opinion. It is used to increase bond as the axle is tightened to 200lbs.

Re: Oil in 8BA
