Re: Clutch chatter....

Re: Clutch chatter....

I have rigged a die grinder in my lathe, to just take the hard spots but, I've also used ceramic inserts. They will usually do the job. I've never used any but, there is also diamond tipped inserts...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

Anthony, as a machinist, you know that where a thread extends threw something, it needs to have the edge broke, for one, to as many as two threads. 1.5 is the standard I use. Besides getting the...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

In reviewing the spark plug links, I couldn't find a 5/8 reach plug, either. So,to get the plug to fit right, I think you should go with GOSFAST spacers, as your thinking.

Re: Headbolts

You gotta remember, old men, don't usually get nicer as time rolls by :)

Always keep in mind that old age and treachery, beat youth and skill ;)

I used to be young, I know about it!

Re: 50 ford front end alignment

There is a way to read the caster w/o alignment gauges.

All you need is a carpenters square and a angle finder of this type. The car needs to be on a level surface.

Using a protractor, turn the...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

As I said, the purpose of extend reach plugs, is to extend the life of them. It has nothing to do with the color that they burn, that a function of the A/F mixture. The extension of your plug, is...

I'm not sure if Ford was first with the extend reach plugs but, the reason was to keep them clean, over a variety of...

Re: coarse & fine threads on headbolts?

That is true, actually, a lot tighter. Here is Henry's thread spec. The normal drill size for 7/16 x 14 is .368, or a "U" drill.

Re: Evolution of installing cylinder heads
