Re: valve seat cutter

Surprising amount of similarities between that one and my vintage Buma setup. Pilot, rigid upper support, single point tool and a hand crank.

Re: valve seat cutter

I used a vintage Buma seat cutter in one of my videos. It uses a single high speed steel cutter. I don't know if there is a modern equivalent.

Friday flatty fix: Pt 22. Studs in, heads on. Getting there!

Hello! It's time to drop in to Mart's garage. Getting dangerously close to actually being fully built up, I continue to add less than perfect parts to the Crusty Flathead. Somewhat repetitious, lots...

Re: U-joint Play (again!)

Sorry to hear that Tim. Awful things are happening right now.

In response to 19Fordy.

If you take the joint and try and rotate the two ends relative to each other and can feel negligible play,...

Re: U-joint Play (again!)

Hello Buford. Something looks screwy about that joint. I would have to go to the garage to check, but the central part is normally recessed and the washer fits down inside the recess. But most...

Re: Been dabbling in Stainless trim repair

^^ Same here, Ralph. The "your results may vary" never rang truer than when trying to emulate Scott.

Re: Hello! Mart here dropping in from the V8 side.

Re: Been dabbling in Stainless trim repair

Re: Cutting down 42 to 48 ford axles for a 40 ford

To be honest, Skid, I didn't find the material too tough, but I only took 5 thou approx off. It was a conversation with the person that supplied the shaft and he said the machinist that did the job...

Re: Cutting down 42 to 48 ford axles for a 40 ford

I traded for one that had been modified. It was not quite right as far as the positioning of the drum so i set it up and skimmed a few thou off the taper. I then had to contend with a keyway that was...

Re: It's Friday. We're locked down. Lets watch Mart's video!

Thanks guys.

Graeme, the sump pan was ex military stock so probably English and maybe pre-dating Pilot. It should use a lucas starter but I had (some time ago) opened the hole out to suit a USA...

Re: Hello! Mart here dropping in from the V8 side.

Thanks Jim. Yes, it's a rebuild tag. It stated 30 thou over on the pistons, 10 on the mains and 10 on the big ends.

I always try and add the pointer and mark. And when the motor is in just that...

Hello! Mart here dropping in from the V8 side.

Hi. I just posted up a thread on the early V8 section about finding tdc by the solid stop method. As it isn't necessarily flathead specific, I thought I'd say hello and post it here too. Most of my...

Tech Short: TDC by solid stop. Even easier than I thought!

Hello Welcome to a tech short from Mart's Garage. This method of finding TDC will work for any engine. Just rig up a pointer and a stop over No.1 piston. You need to stop the piston around 1/4" down...

Re: Split Lock Washers On Main Bearing Caps Of Flathead Motor

The French motors use sheet metal tab devices on the mains. Maybe they decided the spring lock washers were not a good idea.
