Re: Ford 4sp od oil leak

See bearing codes below.

My guess is your bearing is 6308 -2ZN, which is a bearing with metal shield on both sides (2Z) and a locating snap ring (N). This bearing does not have a rubber seal on...

Re: Model "B" Distributor

I'm running a B-Dizzy with 6:1 head. It took me a while to fine tune the timing just right so it wouldn't ping on hills, but I got it dialed in now. With HC head I had to back off on the initial...

Re: Ford 4sp od oil leak

Re: Ford 4sp od oil leak

I couldn't find a vent in my rebuild manual parts list. So I don't believe they came with one installed.

Mine has sealed bearings front and back, with no vent. I don't have any leaks.

Re: B head sample.

Tod, I noticed in a past thread that you have a Mazak in your shop. Just wondering if you use it to make this B head?

Re: How to check a Model B Cam?

Yesterday I posted my measurements, but it may be just a little under. Could you take a look and tell me if it would be a waist of time to bother with that cam?

Thanks

How to check a Model B Cam?

Last year I picked up a Model B engine. It was all cracked but I did save this camshaft and tappets. Still have the intake and carb too.

Where do I measure to see if the cam is not worn out?

John, my points are lasting about 200 miles. I'm using NOS model B point sets.

Re: T-5 5 speed trans VS Mitchell overdrive

With some advice from Ken and Al, I just finished my F150 conversion.
