Re: Another one shipping ARDUN 8BA

Well, they did try to salvage it, in 2002, as I remember. A one or two year effort. It wasn't pretty, it vaguely looked like a '55 Bird but, I was hoping it would go on to be a competitor to the...

Re: Another one shipping ARDUN 8BA

Way OT, I know but, had Zora wound up at Ford, we would still have a continuous production, two seater T-Bird!

Re: crab distributor on a 38 24 stud

I would agree, knowing how Henry thought, that the Crab was at least 50% cost reduction but, I like them for 4 reasons. Looks (I grew up looking at them on all kinds of race engines), remote coil and...

Re: A question of R.P.M.

The old Balloon tires where just as wide, as tall. So, your tire diameter is 5.50 + 5.50 + 17 = 28" tall.

Re: To Air On the Safe Side

To actually know where your air is going, you need to first, bring the pressure back up, then take each one off and wash it up with soapy water. Then watch for bubbles.

Re: coil

Bubba, if the coil has a built in 3 ohm resistance, couldn't it run w/o a external resistor @ 12V?

Re: engine rebuilder near Redding California

Yes, I know they predated WWII and you could find them in Indy cars in the '50's BUT, I can not recall ever seeing them on a '40 - '60's Hot Rod.

They have their place and I use them on more...

Re: engine rebuilder near Redding California

Yes, he's a really great guy. I'm going to do some dyno work with him, if I ever get my stuff back from Keller's.

I just found him about 4 months ago, when looking for a dyno, he invited me down...

Re: Piston ID please

I was looking through the HAMB parts threads and found this add, for Dodge Hemi pistons.

Do they look familiar? :) As near as I could tell, the post mark is '74.

It looks like Jahns had a...

Re: Piston ID please

After posting, I just went back a re-read Newc's post.

His compression Ht is actually 1.435 (1.06 + .375)

So it looks like they are made for the std Merc crank of 4" stoke.

1.435
7.000

Re: Piston ID please

The standard Ford deck Ht is 10.437.

If your piston has a compression Ht of 1.374, if used with a 7" rod and a 4.125 stroke (1/2 stroke = 2.0625), that adds up like this:

1.374/.375
7.000

Give Ken a call at Quality Machine. He does high in builds.

He has a dyno to test with, too.

Re: 37 flatty questions

If it is not pumping, you need to first check the flex line, on the intake side of the pump.

They can have small cracks in them, that you can't really see. If it sucks any air on that side of the...

This would relate to a intake valve leaking.

Re: My new to me '39 Coupe

All I can say is "Beautiful" '39's have a special place in my heart.

I like the no bumper look, it could save a little on gas, too. When I got out of HS, I bought a 57 Austin Healey. I took the...

Re: 24 stud crankshaft in a 21 stud engine

What Brian said is the key to know if it's made to fit a 21 stud.

If the mains measure 2.399 or less, then it's been ground to fit the 21 stud and won't fit a 24.

Re: KingPin reamer

Reamers are made to cut, only on the front cutting surface, the 45 deg area.

A "Rose" reamer, has no relieved flute area, at all. On reamers that have relieve flutes, those flutes are to smooth...

Re: Flathead Air Pump

Regarding the pipe, since the exhaust is blocked off, it would be running 2 cycle and twice the original capacity.

Maybe the exhaust lobe has been ground off and the close ramp modified on the...
