Re: Change in driving between Model T and Model A

My Grandmother went in and bought a car. The salesman showed her how to drive it.
Took her money and sent her off home with the car.
This would have been between 1928 and 1930 sometime.
She had...

Re: Modern one piece valve guide removal

You should be able to knock them down with a driver. If they hit a lifter either turn the motor over so they clear or just cut them off and drive the rest out.

Re: Determing transmission condition

Van Pelts book is great and should have the information you need. There are places to
check with feeler gauges. Most of the rest is visual.
Buy the book and if you need more help Van Pelt himself...

Re: 4bbl manifold flathead V/8

I have had one on my 8BA since 1971 and love it. It is using a holley 450CFM carburetor
and a Mallory distributor.
If I had a roadster with a half hood or no hood I would run 2-2's
One time I...

Re: Head gasket indentations pics

Yes, use it. I've used worse with copper coat sprayed on it.
If it works, do the right thing and send the new gasket back to Sacramento Vintage.
None of the vendors work on a very big profit margin.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Maybe the question should be how much power can it handle. The weak link is usually the crank and this one looks pretty stout.
It would be fun to put a good overhead on it and see how it will RPM.

Re: New Engine Oil Change

I always change the oil and filter if it has one on any engine I run for the first time.
Most of the time they run for at least an hour. Its cheap insurance.

Re: Spray paint

Hawley’s paint in Santa Rosa will make up paint and put in a spray can if you can give them a paint code. If not you’ll need to buff an area of the car to get the color up and have them use...

Re: Unleaded Gas

A 1965 289 could go either way. If its a stock 195hp motor and driven easy you can
get away with stock valve seats.
The problem comes when you start running the motor hard and using higher than...

Re: B crank Bearings Who's are they?

The 4547 is a Vandervell bearing company bearing. It a a main bearing for an MGA 1622
motor. So that 12H676 is probably the same MGA bearing.
H&H used to also do it this way.

Re: B crank Bearings Who's are they?

The brand name is Glyco but I don't recognize the part number, it could be a date
I know in the early days AER engines used this type of set up. You should give him
a call.

Re: Is this rumour correct?

I agree with Brent on this one. I have also been involved in this hobby for about the same
amount of time and have the same observations.

Re: Do I have too much toe-in?

How's the camber? Your set up dosen't look like it can handle much castor.
And the amount of toe you have should help you down a slippery drive way in the winter.

Re: Rear main oil pan seal

You can also use an early small block chevy front timing cover seal which is neoprene.
Its the 1/4 thick one, trim to fit and a dab of silicone at edges.
