Re: Split valve guide question

I agree with your Ron !
The 'modern' set is easier to use and less hassle and consistent fitment.

Re: bearing insert identification help...

Hey Wm,
Well, that is interesting. Enough so, that I might call him. I did not examine that yellow paint on crank closely enough to come up with that name. Has that been a standard marking system...

Re: bearing insert identification help...

Thanks, I got nothing against 'touring', as long as someone else is doing it :) ! For various reasons, various parts of me will not tolerate sitting for hours on end, especially in a Model A.

Re: bearing insert identification help...

Hey John,
Yeah, I'll most likely follow that advice.

Re: bearing insert identification help...

The more I mess with this B, the more appealing it becomes to hear it run. Wish I knew about the cam, but that would entail taking it out and mailing it to Jim B. Maybe it is better grind than a B ? ...

Re: bearing insert identification help...

May are most likely correct about wearing out a new set of shell bearings, but 'always' be prepared :) !

Also, I gave you wrong info , as the bearing id is at the TANG END of back of shell as...

Hey John,
I had one such trans completely destroyed by UPS years ago.

I've run one in a Russian B for a dozen years+ now and no leak of oil whatsoever .

Re: Interesting GAZ B engine "barn find" in Russia.

Well, so I'm saying that the Russian B blocks were not prone to cracking !
I'm running one for a dozen or more years now and warmed up and run hard. I also know others who use same and never have...

Re: bearing insert identification help...

I agree with your assessment:).
Except that my B pans do not have dipper trays, usually. So, dipper would be superfluous weight. I remove tray (with full oil pressure system) and add an oil...

Re: bearing insert identification help...

I just now re-read your first paragraph. Although the dippers are still on caps, the insert bearings are NOT drilled to let oil in or out from the dipper ! So, the splash dipper will throw oil...

Hey M2M,
What is that in US money ? I'm thinking $368.00 or so ! If so, and that is a 'perfect' gaz B block, I'd get it and if a perfect block, it should have a C type crank and rods ect to make the...
