Re: What are the must haves for you're shop?

I'd like to see photos of some of these shops if comfortable with sharing. I like the garagejournal but they never have anything in their shops that interest a Flathead guy...

Re: Cast steel vs aluminum crab distributor

Personally, I prefer the iron bodied unit. For one, the bore of the piston brake plunger is lined with a bronze bush

Re: 59A Engine Fitted with Truck water pumps

And the procedure to strip these pumps is somewhat different...Use a bearing separator around the pulley and, supporting the bearing separator in a press, press the pulley off of the shaft. After...

Re: Fuel pump rod - what is the purpose of umbrella?

And... the pushrod length is determined by the manifold, not what it's made of. Your original intake, be it aluminum or iron, uses the longer pushrod.

Re: I just can't burn another armature....

Moving the third brush down, ie in direction of armature rotation, increases the charge rate. Start with it positioned just slightly down, run engine and watch ammeter. You want it indicating around...

Re: I just can't burn another armature....

Re: I just can't burn another armature....

How have you positioned the third brush? You need to set it so you're only charging around 5 amps as indicated on the ammeter. Do not run the 3rd brush all the way down.

Re: Update NOS WWII Engine

The Canaks used the lock in shells C49-6215 in trucks up to serial # H48-20000 [C69A engines], then from #H48-20001 used the new 8BA style engine. This also occurred during the 1948 production year

Re: Update NOS WWII Engine

Some of the differences with Canak stuff;

Starting with the LB 36 blocks, all Canadian blocks with shell mains have two 5/8 holes machined in the pan rails, I assume they were used to locate the...

Re: Update NOS WWII Engine

In my opinion, that is not an '81A' engine. Canadian blocks have cast into the area either in front of cyl #1 or cyl #5, the series number. Pre war Canadian blocks have the boss at the back where...
