Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

Is this evidence enough? The hub turned on the axle because not nearly tight enough. Rolled the key right over in the slot...destroyed axle. No myths here! It's exactly the same theory that a...

Well then....what are those three long, skinny black things that are going through the sky, but are NOT REALLY over that house that they just LOOK LIKE they're going over? DD

Re: Electric fans

If crank-mounted fan is above bottom tank, that placement is optimum. Is that radiator clean inside? I'm not sure why you're having a hard time cooling the engine. Whatever you do, don't let...

Re: Electric fans

Looking at the rounded rise and curvature of that sheet metal panel, as well as the rubber-looking gasket/seal on top of it, and comparing that shape with the curved external body shape of the blue...

Re: Electric fans

If you depend on a fan to SUCK air through a radiator, a shroud effectively allows air to be sucked ONLY through the radiator. That's what shrouds are designed to do. Opening a 4th, empty hole in...

Re: 8ba questions

Zeke....I believe you've asked a valid question, but you should remember that the PCV valve-vented system has engine vacuum helping to propel the noxious gasses, through a roughly 3/8" nipple on...

Re: 8ba questions

That sounds like a reasonable assumption. These things must have a way to relieve blow-by pressures, or they find their own way at the most convenient, leak-prone gasket surface. I'm not sure why...

Re: 38 starting woes

Re: 8ba questions

B&S is correct on ALL counts above. The PCV valve must draw from the modified (capped-off), removable road draft tube stub at the front of the valve chamber, 8BA. That can clearly be seen on the...
