Working on a fiends Model T , the #4 rod cap was not seated but was torqued tight. It had a slight knock. Reset it and lightly tapped all rod caps for the same sound. T runs great.
Good Luck

Re: 29 Tudor crank pulley question

Fred93, I would check the lugs on the pulley and collar for damage caused by the movement. I 'm speaking from experience and I went back to a one piece pulley. A little more work but peace of mind....

Re: Exhaust fumes

Hi , Sounds like Hydro carbon blow by from your breather cap. A lot of folks put a special cap on that vents it under the cab. Berts catalog pg 31 part # A6764

Re: Rear main thrust

4 pot, the oil is pumped to the valve chamber and gravity feed to the mains. Most guys use a molding clay before pouring Babbitt.

Re: Engine in my 1929 tudor sounds like it knocks

Floats, Berts sells a bronze "rear main seal" that has a strong thrust surface on it. It is in their new catalog. Engine has to be removed but it should work. Good Luck

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

If you replace the crankshaft pulley use a one piece one. I have had the two piece type fail. Engine looks clean. Good Luck!
