Re: Remote master cylinder fill

As I see it, one option you have is to fabricate a filler cap that will accept a right angle hose elbow to attach a brake fluid resistant hose to. ( I had this type remote fill setup on my '51 single...

Re: Rotor too big for distributor shaft on Ford 8ba flathead v8

The rotor should have the same 3/8" slip fit as the shaft.
As previously stated the clip is what keeps the rotor from moving radially and snugs it up axially.

It is possible that you have the...

Re: cleaned fuel bowl=no start?

Re: hesitation

If you did notice some improvement then it appears that the accel. pump needs to be corrected as it is not supplying enough fuel shot off idle which can be the cause of hesitation.

Re: hesitation

Sounds more like the accelerator pump needs attention (longer stroke position).
If it's an automatic, the idle speed in neutral should be closer to 500 RPM or less....

Re: adjustable lifters

The "Isky lifters" being sold using their own part number appear to be solid HI Lift Johnson's but you would have to contact Iskenderian or the seller to get that info for sure.

Hi Lift Johnson solid #A-2032 lifters as i understand it are the ones to use as there are others out there with questionable pedigree.

Re: method for verifying fuel pump output volume

Don't know if you have a glass filter bowl, but if so, a cracked or loose bowl gasket will cause similar symptoms by sucking air.
