Re: Lincoln Y-Block 318 Problems

Guys, the y-block and Lincoln distributors interchange. All you need to do is switch the gears. Plus, if you do that you will have to upgrade to a later hex-drive oil pump as well.

Re: flathead to ohv engine swap

Yeah, those were the days. Caddy or Olds, or a couple of other weirder motors. I wish I was still there, but now 4 cylinders rule, and sometimes a 6 cylinder. Pfhoey!

Re: flathead to ohv engine swap

Re: Wire Wheel Tires with Radisl tires

I shouldn't jump in this, but, you know, there are radial tubes. You also need rim strips with tubes. The question I ask is why do you insist on radial tires in the first place? Bias tires would...

Re: 170 6 cylinder stalls on acceleration

You might also want to make sure the distributor is functioning as it should. Everyone forgets that distributors need periodic attention as well. Also keep in mind, not all "rebuilds" are done well,...

Re: tick tick tick tick

It's a low oil pressure issue. You MAY be able to stave it off for a bit with an aftermarket high volume oil pump, but it won't fix a worn out engine.

Re: 2012 f150 5.0 motor

The noise you hear is the valve train, resulting from low oil pressure. It would run a long time like that if necessary. There are lots of things to oil on an overhead cam system, and a convoluted...
