Re: Oil gallery plug to 8ba

Try hardware and plumbing supply outlets as well as EBAY as stated.
By all means do NOT do any odd size re-tapping.
The plugs are available.

If you are running a CCW fan mounted on the water pump with a serpentine belt, the engine runs clockwise.

If it were a flathead it would be hot but if you do a little research you may find that it's pretty normal for the engine you are using.

Re: 8BA 12 V Starter?

That's wonderful. Over 30 years ago I converted my vehicle to 12 volts and never converted the starter.

Re: Correct flathead operating temperature?

Probably depends on if it's a water cooled or air cooled engine.

Was probably the plug to use for "dirt track racing" conditions so I wonder just what miraculous improvements would happen by using them in a daily driver?
