Re: how many cfm for two carb flathead??

I'm not sure what your getting at but, FH's are somewhat limited to 5500 rpm and by today's standard, they are small V8's.

The 94 carb is more like 125 cfm so, if you were to build a 276 CI engine...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Oh, one other thing, did the ignition timing vary much between the 150 and 200 hp versions?

Re: 33 engine noise

Is the noise present, when the car isn't moving? If so, it eliminates any drive train issue and you can probably find it with a stethoscope.

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

My wife took me to see it, last night, for my 75th Bday.

Overall, I liked the movie but, the driving scenes, are down right "Hokey"!!

Re: Isky cam

Yes!!!

Castrol R, I loved that stuff. I first got a whiff of it at the '59 Times Grand Prix, at Riverside.

I loved it so much that I ran it in my 400 Maico MX bike, even though it would foul...

Isn't that what we call a Blueprinted cam, today?

Re: Rhythmic smoke puffing out of oil input breather cap

I'm late to this but, here is my take on it.

Re: Clutch chatter....

Murre,
It sounds like you know the trade and yes, that's true, that's why I said usually.

When turning, it can also make a difference where the hard spot is as, surface speed changes, as you go...

Re: Clutch chatter....

I have rigged a die grinder in my lathe, to just take the hard spots but, I've also used ceramic inserts. They will usually do the job. I've never used any but, there is also diamond tipped inserts...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

Anthony, as a machinist, you know that where a thread extends threw something, it needs to have the edge broke, for one, to as many as two threads. 1.5 is the standard I use. Besides getting the...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

In reviewing the spark plug links, I couldn't find a 5/8 reach plug, either. So,to get the plug to fit right, I think you should go with GOSFAST spacers, as your thinking.

You gotta remember, old men, don't usually get nicer as time rolls by :)
