Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

I'm still a believer in using gaskets as they are. They are designed to seal without added sealers. The only time I use any kind of sealant ( and then only a spot or two) is when I need to keep a...

Re: cam install, won't turn all the way! help again please

Did the cam go in fairly easily or did you have to force it in? Odd that it rotates and then stops. That would sound like a bad tooth somewhere.

Re: 59 a Crankshaft front seal

If the rope seal works with the spirals, why wouldn't the neoprene?

Re: Will 59 A-B flywheel fit an 8BA ?

The actual flywheel is different and not interchangeable between the two.

Re: 59 a Crankshaft front seal

If the sealing surface is in good shape, the one piece seal will work just fine on the 59 pulley. I've done it many times with no leakage problems. The small grooves are not a problem.

Re: 8BA Valve Guide Removal

Raise the valve by lifting on the retainer, give the top of the valve a rap and the keepers should fall out. Pull the valve out and pound the guide down.

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

The fact that it runs with the idle screws out 1/2 turn indicates that fuel is getting into the engine from somewhere other than the idle circuit. I would not suspect jets.

Re: 1947 Ford v8

Maybe it would help if you explained it. The hole is connected to a vacuum source originally. If it still is, you need to plug that supply. Your new distributor does not need it.

Re: 59 AB camshafts

The A in the part # indicates it is for a car or commercial vehicle. 59AB cams had 5T stamped on them.

Re: Eagle 4" 8BA Crank?

For a street driven engine, torque is king.

Hopefully I can check it tomorrow. There is no torque tube.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

I'm curious as to why you went with this guy when you were warned about him in one of those posts that Black Fifty highlighted?

Re: 1934 Ford timing

The distributor rotates counterclock wise. Moving the adjuster in the opposite direction will advance the timing.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

There is a small drain hole in the water pump that must be clogged. Maybe poke in there to see if you can't open it up. Shouldn't be clogged in a new build. Very suspicious.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

For 9K if someone didn't pressure test the block, I would be very upset.
