Re: cam gear timing 1936 LB engine

The timing mark on the crankshaft gear may be hidden by the oil slinger.
If it is still not visible, this should work:
Turn the engine over until the camshaft timing mark is vertically down.

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

Damn! I got put off there with talk of '35. It is, of course, '32 - thanks Mart.

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

Yes, Frank, for the Batten.
I've always believed that the present radiator shell was a 1932 design, truncated. What have I missed?

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

I will, Mart, when it's got along a bit further.

Why would anyone want to do that to a 21-stud engine?
Because my special copper cylinder heads (Federal Mogul) are 21-stud, but more of that...

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

The cylinder offset is inward toward the centre of the V, so, as you say, TDC in the right bank (looking forward) will be "late" while that in the left bank will be "early".
My initial concern...

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

It is a Pilot engine but that makes no difference really.
In order to preserve material around the lower stud holes each cylinder centreline has been moved 1/8" inward and bored out to 3.1/2",...

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

Got all you said, B&S.

Heck, since I'm putting together a 286 CI 21-stud, there may be no time for messing with cam jigs, even for sh*ts and giggles. :)

Look forward to your post back - me too....

Many thanks.

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

I could do (have done) that.
As I said, I just like designing and making things.

Re: V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

Thank you, that will be a great help.

I'm making a jig/tool to re-drill the camshaft mounting holes in the timing gear to enable the camshaft to be advanced or retarded anything up to five...

V8 Camshaft Bolt Pattern

Good morning Barners.
Where can I find a dimensioned drawing of the bolt pattern of V8 camshafts, with the one hole offset?
Any pointers gratefully received.

32-36 Heads Puzzle

A pair of 1932-36 aluminum cylinder heads has turned up, but there are no cast-in numbers or Ford script. There is a suggestion of Canadian origin.

What is the real answer?

Thanks chaps,
Neil.

Where has billben/flathead gone

The flathead tech site at

Re: Admin help

Oh, OK. It's almost a year old. Does that make it "older"? Guess so.
I'll start a new thread.

I want to edit a post but cannot. The FAQ says
"To edit or delete your posts, click the Edit button by the particular post"
but there isn't that button beside my post.

How do I get that button...

Water Pump Flow Rate

Searches here, there, and everywhere have not provided an answer, so I have to ask:

What is the flow rate of a flathead water pump?

Gallons per minute at some rpm.
