Re: Mitchel overdrives

Good reason to have a Mitchell. This is with a 3.78:1 ratio @ 1.26% over drive. As usual, can't control the picture rotation.

Re: Oops! Do you see what happens when you are tired and it is late in the day?

Pulled my engine 4 weeks ago because I missed the clearance on #3 rod bearing and damaged the Babbitt. Anyway I finished the repair today and reaffirmed an engine won't run without the rotor!!

Re: Checking Rear Main Oil Leak

Antique Engineering has a great write up on rear main leaks. Other than inspecting the rear main dip tube, dropping the pan isn't going to get you much. Although I don't advocate doing this oil can...

Check with Bill Barlow. He's listed in the Babbitt section of the ford website page. You'll have to call him, no webpage.
