Re: KD 917 tool

Look at the guide thru the spring coils. The guides have a round notch just beneath the top of the spring. Run your bar between the coils into the notch and try to pull the guide down.

Re: KD 917 tool

You need to drive the guide down before pulling the clip or you'll just probably tear out the hole in the clip. You also need to be looking for a driver.

Re: Valve differences

While on the subject of valves I need a favor. Original Ford valves had a "bump" around the stem under the valve head. This was actually a bump and not an undercut. I have a mushroom type valve...

Re: Valve differences

Ron, I probably didn't explain things very well, so I'll try again.

If I grind the seat 0.020" (verticaly) then the valve sits lower in the block. Since the horseshoe clip rests against the...

Re: copper gaskets

I prefer the Best brand of composite gaskets for aluminum heads even on my blown 9CM Merc motor. Do a google search for Best gaskets.

Valve seat grinding

How much can be removed, when grinding valve seats, vertically before replacing the seat in the block?

TIA

Re: Engine block I.D. pictures

i Believe the '32-'33 valve guides included a frlange instead of the horseshoe clip. Removal of valves had to be done in the valley as the guides could not come out o the top.

Re: Is this a V8 tool ???

Seems to me it pushes the guide up & out of the block after the horsehoe clip has been removed. It doesn't look like it pulls it down to be able to remove the clip.

Re: installed height valve and spring

I think the Manleyl ocks are larger than the stock Ford locks as well so that may also compress the spring some more if you use them.

Re: Rare 21 stud 59A ?

Don't know what I was thinkng when I wrote this. The 41A was a 24 stud engine. Sorry for any confusion.

Re: Rare 21 stud 59A ?

Not to argue but I believe the 41A blocks were 21 stud. Ford had a cutter to enlarge the valve pockets on the left head so the old heads (81* series) could be used on the new 41A block. The cutter...

Re: Flathead questions

With stock bore and stroke you're looking at a nominal compression ratio of 8.41:1. You will probably have to have the valve pockets enlarged when you change the cam. Thos heads are no longer in...
