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!
