Re: Bronze valve guides??

I've never had seized valves in the guides before. Heck in my 32 Cab, it sat in a non-heated garage for 55 years, no hood, etc.. When I got it, I pulled the heads (to check the valves), pulled...

Re: 5/16" id or 3/8" id fuel hose?

At stock horsepower levels, you can run 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 - whatever you like. Truth be told, the 1/4" line will feed more fuel than you'll ever use.

Re: French Flathead Blocks

Me - I have a pretty good stash of 59x and 49-53 blocks . . . most are crack-free. I still believe that one has to do a bit of looking, but there are good blocks out there for about $500 - $700 . ....

Re: Aluminum Flywheel

Maybe it would sound like a 'gear drive' when you have the clutch in? All those ball bearings knocking around . . . has to be cool doesn't it? :)

Re: NGK plugs

You can't check plugs by just running the engine, idling it, driving around town, shutting it down and looking at them - they will always be black/sooty.

You have to run the car on the highway,...

Re: NGK plugs

Phil has it right . . . I can't see you running the B4-L . . . I run the B6-L plugs is just about every engine that isn't supercharged (and where this is the correct plug length for the heads I'm...

Re: Flatheads breaking off engine stands and falling.

I just modified one of my heavy 4-wheel stands (made them myself for my heavy Hemi engines). I added some removeable front pieces (reusing a frame mount jig in the process) to mount the front of the...

Re: Using later valves in a '39 flathead

This is pretty much what all of us do . . . as the split guides tend to move around a bit (between the two) and are harder on valve stems as a result. The best situation is to buy a whole valve...

Re: Flatheads breaking off engine stands and falling.

When I port 39-48 blocks, I bolt to the half bellhousing area - as I need to be able to rotate the block to get the best porting angle. I only do this with just a bare block (doesn't weigh that...

Re: Is this junk

You can just chamfer the oil hole - heck, we do that with all our racing cranks anyway. Obviously it will need a regrind, but going to 20 on the rods should not be a big deal and getting to 30 on...

Re: Flathead Friday. Crank. Rods. Bearings. How bad are they?

Hey Mart, I'm sure that engine will run, but I would surely clean it up a lot better - or all the crap that is surely inside the crankshaft (and the block) will be pushed through the bearings and...

Re: What in Tarnation?

Re: Installing replacement pistons

Anthony G: I saw earlier that you were planning on leaving the crank in and trying to 'mask' around it. I highly recommend that you pull the engine apart such that you don't contaminate the...

Re: 8cm cam grind

Also, 'Pete' Samuelson (here is on here as 'Pete') can grind all sorts of great profiles - I imagine he has something that would work for you. I'd drop him a PM or eMail and see what he says . . .

Re: Head gasket thickness

If they don't say 'Best' on them, then they're not. I bought a full-gasket set from Speedway about 2 years ago - and they were a bit tricky on their website, the wording made it seem like I was...

As well as what are the recommended piston to cylinder wall clearances that Ross recommends. Keep in mind, that unless you have a good quality cylinder dial-bore gauge, it is not easy to measure the...

Re: Head gasket thickness

I usually use a figure of about .050 for the compressed thickness. Are you sure you have an accurate mic?

Re: Head gasket thickness

I still like the Best Gaskets stuff . . . the best :D They can be a bit of a pain to clean up after head removal, but they do work well.

Re: Liner/bore question.

I'd be a lot more comfortable with a .090 wall thickness than a .060 wall thickness in a cast iron sleeve. As noted by Gary, make sure you seal the sleeves with LockTite.

Re: Vibration - rumble

You definitely need a new clutch disc at the very least (and probably a throw out bearing and for sure a pilot bearing). Hopefully the pilot bearing held together, or I'd also be checking out the...
